Gotham Knights

WB Games Montreal finally unveiled Gotham Knights at DC FanDome and it seems to be set after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight. It sees Bruce Wayne/Batman supposedly being dead and sending out a message to the Bat Family to take care of Gotham. That means Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl and Red Hood stepping up to the task.

The initial trailer saw each member having their unique moves and abilities, including takedowns. At the end, the Court of Owls and their deadly Talon troops were teased. In-engine gameplay was also revealed and co-op support is confirmed for up to two players (though one can also play through solo). Team-up attacks are back, regardless, and they look snazzy.

Enemies also have levels and damage numbers pop up when attacking (along with XP when taking down foes). Level design seems to be on point, especially when exploring an ice-covered location where the crew fights Mister Freeze. WB Games Montreal also talked about a “living” Gotham City that would offer new challenges over time, indicating extensive post-launch support. “Games-as-a-service” wasn’t outright stated though.

Gotham Knights is out in 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5 and PC. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
