Fans of the caped crusader are now at ease as a new Batman game, Gotham Knights is on the way.
Gotham Knights is an upcoming action/role play game that is being developed by WB Games Montréal and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The studio is well known for making award-winning games like Batman Arkham City and Batman Arkham Asylum.
The game is set to release in 2021 and official gameplay has not been announced although some fighting sequences from the trailer look like in-game footage. Gotham Knights will release on PS5, PS4, XBOX 1, XBOX X series, and PC.
The studio announced that in this universe, batman will not be available as he Is killed in Action. So Gotham knights will have multiple protagonists as we will be able to play as Batman’s sidekicks such as Night wing, Red Hood, Robin, and Batgirl. Judging from the trailer we can expect some mission to be co-op and some to be solo. We might be able to play with our friends online on the co-op missions as we had this feature in the previous games.
What we can expect
Like the previous games, we will face batman’s iconic villains such as Mr. Freeze, Penguin, The Riddler, Bane, and others. The game will have some tag team moves and enemy NPCs finishing moves like the batman Arkham city. The batmobile and other vehicles will also be able to commandeer. Fans are anxiously waiting for a new and improved fighting system in Gotham Knights as the previous games consisted of a user friendly and somewhat repetitive combat style. The studio has not released any games in the previous year so we can expect the game to be fully optimized and bug-free.
