Game news Gotham Knight: more ambitious than Batman Arkham? The game tells us more about its strengths!
Although he confirmed his presence during the Summer Game Fest evening organized by ex-journalist Geoff Keighley, Gotham: Knights did not have much to tell us. For the occasion, an unpublished video featuring Nightwing (to be found below) had been broadcast, but if we had deduced certain things from it, we were eager to have confirmation. Recently interviewed by Game Informer, two project executives returned to specific points about the future superheroic adventure in Batman’s stronghold.

- Characters tortured, but unleashed!
A Gotham City Like No Other
Difficult to speak about a game as expected as Gotham: Knights when you find yourself trapped in an ad tunnel. It is in particular for this reason that the developers of Warner Bros. Montreal allowed a few days to pass before answering further questions. At the microphone of the site Game InformerFleur Marty and Geoff Ellenor have revealed a series of details about what will be “ the largest version of Gotham that has been depicted in video games “. Both very dense and very vertical, the city where the Court of Owls now reigns since the death of Batman will live up to the freedom advocated by the title.
If he is in good physical condition, our quartet of superheroes will still have a very useful vehicle to make long journeys easier: the Batcycle. Moreover, just like our fine team of vigilantes, it will be customizable (noise, colors, …) and, in terms of customization in general, we had the right to a few small clarifications. Each follower of Batman will be entitled to 11 styles of costumes whose pieces and colors can be changed : we had already seen the various possible appearances of our heroes in the excerpt shared during Summer Game Fest. And there would even be funny situations vis-à-vis that, according to Fleur Marty.
Characters tortured, but unleashed!
Nevertheless, the information disclosed by the two executives of Warner Bros. Montreal were not limited to what was mentioned above. More than just an action game where you chain combos, Gotham Knights aims to offer a scenario where the theme of mourning is of great importance because the death of the Dark Knight is the starting point of the game : it’s even the introductory cinematic, and each of the characters will overcome this ordeal in their own way and will have to get along with their teammates to perpetuate their mentor’s fight.
On the gameplay side, according to the members of the studio, players eager for justice will not be out of place in the action / adventure format offered by the various missions of the game that can be carried out solo or in pairs in cooperation. And, like the alliance between the players, the synergies between the heroes will be very important. For example, if he seemed very offensive to us in the last presentation, Nightwing is extremely effective when it comes to offering boosts to his allies.. According to the developers, other future communications are to be expected – even if it will be enough for this evening – before the game’s release next October 25 on computer, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
