WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights is out next week and will feature co-op for two players. Those hoping to have up to four heroes fighting together will get their wish next month. A new standalone mode, Heroic Assault, goes live on November 29th and supports four players in co-op.
In its FAQ, the developer described Heroic Assault as separate from the campaign, taking place in an “arena-like environment” with 30 floors. Completing objectives and defeating enemies allows for progressing to the next floor. The mode is a free update for all players, so that’s nice.
PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold is required for two-player online co-op on consoles, so expect Heroic Assault to follow suit. As for whether there’s any incentive for playing the mode – like exclusive gear or cosmetics that are not available in the campaign – we’ll have to wait for more details. Stay tuned in the meantime.
Gotham Knights is out on October 21st for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC. Check out the cinematic launch trailer here.
