In addition to new gameplay footage, WB Games Montreal’s Gotham Knights has also received a new FAQ. It reiterated that the action RPG offered an “all-new, original story” set in the Batman Universe and that it was “not connected to the Batman: Arkham games.” Furthermore, it provided a reason for the Xbox One and PS4 versions being cancelled.
“To provide players with the best possible gameplay experience, the game will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC and will not be available for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles.” Whether this means the previous-gen versions had performance issues or other problems is unknown. Also, despite the PlayStation Store listing that reportedly indicated four-player co-op (which was changed later), the full game is still only playable in either solo or two-player online co-op with no support for local play.
Cross-platform support is also not planned at this time. On the bright side, there won’t be any in-game purchases or microtransactions. Pre-orders will receive the 233 Kustom Batcycle vehicle skin as a bonus but unless this is sold separately, then it could be unlockable in-game.
Gotham Knights is out on October 25th for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Check out the most recent gameplay footage here.
