We waited for a long time for WB Montreal to unveil their Batman game, which made it all the more a surprise when the game ended up being the Batman-less Gotham Knights. The game will bring about a new self-contained story that will see many of Batman’s wards come into their own against the dangers of Gotham. And Gotham will be quite alive this go around.
If you recall the later Arkham titles, especially Arkham Knight, the city of Gotham was a barren one. It seems the aim for Gotham Knights is to make it bigger and more populated. As revealed via the official PlayStation blog, the game will feature five boroughs that house the various factions you’ll have to contend with.
As mentioned before, part of the aim of the game is to have Gotham feel like a living, breathing ecosystem, and one way is that the citizens will have their own unique schedules in a more populated city. The example given is that at certain times traffic will be more congested, meaning it may take you longer to reach a destination as you have to navigate rush hour.
Gotham Knights will release in 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC.
