New material on Gotham Knights was also shown at the DC fandome event. A trailer and a behind-the-scenes video were released around the “Court of Owls” – a secret society that is supposed to control Gotham City. The cooperatively playable superhero action is set to be released in 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
While Gotham Knights can be played alone, it also offers a seamless drop-in, drop-out co-op mode, so fellow players can jump in or out straight away. Nevertheless, according to WB Games Montreal, you should never have the feeling that you can only play one character. “We have the combat system [vgl. Batman-Arkham-Reihe] completely redesigned to work well in co-op, “said Fleur Marty, executive producer of Gotham Knights. Although Gotham Knights has four playable heroes (Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin), it was designed for two-player co-op , as a very special “superhero fantasy” – certainly also with regard to the dynamic duo. You will be able to explore the open game world right at the beginning without restrictions and although you could see the levels of opponents in the game scene video, they should should not be understood as a level-gating mechanism to limit individual progress, and the game is not designed as a “Game As A Service”.
