Release date, gameplay, trailers… We summarize everything you need to know about Gotham Knights.
A co-op mode in Gotham Knights?
Gotham Knights offers us a dive into the sinister world of Gotham City, a universe full of danger in which to fight the crime alone can be complex. This is why the game will fully integrate a two-player co-op mode. We could even push the plug a little further, hoping for a cooperation mode for up to four players, information from the Playstation Store, which has since been corrected (back to two players max). But the game will be presented to us live this Tuesday in a gameplay sequence of several minutes, the opportunity for Warner Bros Games to confirm the extent of the cooperation mode.
What is the release date for Gotham Knights?
Initially announced two years ago years, Gotham Knights saw its release penalized both by the health crisis and its intention to cover two generations of consoles at the same time. Indeed, Gotham Knights is scheduled to be released on both Playstation 5, PC and Xbox Series X|S, and both on Playstation 4 and Xbox One. A promise that can lead to development difficulties for the game to comply with the technical specificities of old consoles. Only now Warner has finally announced the official release date of the game, the 10 next October.
As we told you in the introduction, Gotham Knights is a unique experience, straight out of the Warner Bros Games Montreal studios, which have already offered us, among other things, the excellent Batman Arkham City and Batman Arkham Origins. Suffice to say that the studio knows about open-world games in Gotham. This is exactly what Gotham Knights tends towards: an action-adventure RPG set in the open world of Gotham City. The game will be playable alone, or in two-player co-op, and you can embody one of the four heirs of Batman: Robin, Batgirl, Redhood and Nightwing in their quest to take back Gotham from the hands of organized crime and bloodthirsty mutants. Each hero has their own weapons and skills, so you will have to choose their character according to their style of play, melee enthusiasts will opt for Nightwing and Robin instead, while those who prefer firearms will rather go to Redhood. The game will also include different ways to customize your character, damage indicators and epic boss fights against big names in the DC universe. At least that’s what the gameplay trailer published at the time of the game’s reveal in 1001 ):
