Gotham Knights are just a few months away, and the developers have shared some big news regarding the status of the game. Development studio WB Montreal shared new gameplay footage on Tuesday, showing off how Red Hood and Nightwing can work together to take down criminals. While it was originally announced as a cross-generation title, Gotham Knights are now coming exclusively to Xbox Series X|S, PC, and PS5.
Gotham Knights currently have a release date of Oct. 25, 2022. While Nightwing has an acrobatic fighting style, Red Hood uses (ostensibly) non-lethal bullets and bombs. These are just two of the characters that are playable in Gotham Knights, as players can also take up the mantle of Batgirl or Robin. That makes the upcoming open-world, third-person action-RPG game one of few actual, proper new-generation titles.
How much will Gotham Knights cost?
The Gotham Knights Standard Edition can be pre-ordered for $69.99 (SRP). The Deluxe Edition can be pre-ordered for $89.99 (SRP), including the base game and Visionary Pack downloadable content (DLC) with exclusive gear, cosmetics, Beyond Suitstyle character skins inspired by the Batman Beyond animated series, and more.
The Collector’s Edition can be pre-ordered for $299.99 (SRP), featuring the Deluxe Edition, augmented reality collectible pin, 16-page media book, an exclusive Gotham City map, four-character statue diorama, and more. Pre-orders will receive the 233 Kustom Batcycle Skin at launch, inspired by the vehicle’s first appearance in DC’s Detective Comics #233.
There will be no PS4 or Xbox One version of the game, as Warner Bros. Montreal explained in a press release that it’s aiming to provide the “best possible” gameplay experience using the more powerful hardware available. The game will introduce a new original story set in DC’s Batman Universe and will offer a dynamic and interactive Gotham City.
Gotham Knights will be playable either solo or as a two-player, online cooperative experience. As Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin progress in the missions, their unique gameplay skills are said to evolve, alongside an increasing arsenal of weapons and gear. WB Games Montréal says Gotham Knights players will also get to face off with some of the most infamous DC Super-Villains, such as Mr. Freeze.
Will Gotham Knights feature an original story?
Yes. Gotham Knights feature an all-new original story where an expansive, criminal underworld has swept through the streets of Gotham City. It is now up to the Batman Family – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin – to protect Gotham from a descent into chaos. From solving mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the city’s history to defeating notorious villains in epic confrontations, players will confront an array of challenges as they evolve into their own version of the Dark Knight.
