Guillaume Voghel, producer for Batman Arkham Origins, said that the game will come with an extra hard mode called I Am the Night. Speaking with Eurogamer, Voghel explained that the mode would add greater longevity and permadeath.
“We have a new difficulty level, New Game Plus is coming back – that’s really difficult – and when you’re done with that there’s I Am The Night mode – which is no saves and one life.”
Creative Director Eric holmes later clarified via Twitter that you will be able to save, but the mode will indeed only give you one life. The main story and side missions will take about 12 hours to complete, but to get 100% will take much, much longer.
Batman: Arkham Origins is coming to PlayStation 3 and all current platforms on October 25th.
