WB Games Montreal, the developers known for Batman: Arkham Origins, have been teasing us about their next game for the past year. We knew it would be set in the Batman/DC universe and feature the Court of Owls, but what we DIDN’T know was that Batman would be dead. Revealed during the DC Fandome today, Gotham Knights has you play as Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Red Hood as they protect the city of Gotham from the likes of classic Batman villains and the sinister Court of Owls.
Alongside the new trailer was 8 minutes of pre-alpha gameplay, showcasing the new combat system and the co-op feature, where you and a friend can play the entire game side-by-side. You can also play the game by yourself if you wish. The footage also showed Mr. Freeze as one of the main villains.
Gotham Knights will be arriving in 2021 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned to the DC Fandome event for more info on upcoming DC film and game releases!
