WB Games Montréal announces its upcoming Batman game, Gotham Knights, at DC FanDome 2020. Previously, WB Games Montréal worked on Batman Arkham Origins, which was loved by both players and critics alike. So, it’s understandable why DC fans are excited about the new Batman game.
Gotham Knights: Everything You Should Know
As of now, there is no official release date for Gotham Knights. However, the WB Games Montréal co-op title will certainly be released in 2021.
Moreover, according to some recent rumors, the new Batman game is likely to release in July 2021. This speculation surfaced on the internet after Gotham Knights’ Twitter post for Christmas 2020. The post showcases the Flying Greysons’ circus event that took place in mid-July. That’s why some DC game fans think that through this post, WB Games Montréal is hinting at a possible July release date for this game.
This game will release for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS4, and PS5. So, both the current and last generation console users will experience this game.
Similar to the Batman Arkham game, Gotham Knights will feature many DC characters. However, for now, we only know about a few of the characters we will see in this game; Here’s the complete list:
- Night Wing – Dick Greyson (Confirmed)
- Batgirl – Barbara Gordon (Confirmed)
- Red Hood – Jason Todd (Confirmed)
- Robin – Tim Drake (Confirmed)
- Poison Ivy (Rumored)
- Mr. Freeze (Confirmed)
- Alfred Pennyworth (Confirmed)
- Renee Maria Montoya – Police Captain (Confirmed)
- The Court of Owls group (Rumored)
- Joker (Rumored)
As per the official game trailer, there will be at least four playable characters in the game. So, it makes sense to include co-op options for up to four players. However, until now, it was confirmed that the cooperation feature would be limited to only two players.
If you play an online game, another player can join the session without affecting the story. However, if you don’t feel like playing the game with your friend, you can play it yourself in offline mode.
