The PC version of the upcoming Batman: Arkham Origins will use Steam instead of Microsoft’s Games for Windows Live service, publisher Warner Bros. has confirmed.

Valve’s popular Steam platform will be used for the PC editions multiplayer and achievements. This is the first Arkham game that won’t be compatible with Microsoft’s PC gaming service.

Arkham Origins is scheduled for release on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U this November.
