Gotham Knights is the next Batman universe game players will likely get their hands on. Unlike Rocksteady’s Suicide Squad game, Gotham Knights isn’t set in the same universe as the Arkham games. Knights depicts four playable characters: Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin and Red Hood. With Bruce Wayne and therefore the Batman announced to be dead, it’s up to the team of Knights to face the Court of Owls.
Online co-operative play for up to 2 players for the game has been confirmed so that friends can team up to take on the court of Gotham’s wealthiest, no-good families. Gotham Knights was also announced to have a gear and loot focus for the game, allowing the beautifying of your heroes.
Now releasing in 2022, players will have to wait a little longer to jump into this superhero adventure. Gotham Knights is slated for release on PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
