Gotham Knights: Release date and other things everybody wants to know

Gotham Knights: Release date and other things you want to know

News 08/07/2022

There’s no new Batman game on the horizon, but DC fans shouldn’t complain. Soon, they will get not one but two promising titles set in the universe – Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League and Gotham Knights. Let’s take a closer look at the latter as its release is fast approaching.

At first, many players believed that the new WB Games Montréal game would be titled Batman: Gotham Knights to relate to the Batman: Arkham franchise and the comic book series published between 2000 and 2006. Now we know that the Caped Crusader is missing from the title. It’s an understandable decision as Gotham Knights is set in Gotham after Batman’s death. Furthermore, unlike Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League, it is not a part of the Batman: Arkham series. It’s a completely separate story.

In the upcoming game, we will follow the events after Batman’s death. Consequently, the Dark Knight won’t be among the playable characters. However, he’ll appear in some form, for instance, as pre-recorded voice messages. The four Gotham Knights playable characters are:

  • Batgirl (Barbara Gordon),
  • Nightwing (Dick Grayson),
  • Red Hood (Jason Todd),
  • Robin (Tim Drake).

On our adventure, we’ll meet plenty of prominent Batman characters, including Alfred Pennyworth, Mr. Freeze, Penguin, and the mysterious Court of Owls.

Despite the fact that there will be four heroes to choose from, the game won’t feature four-player cooperation. You’ll embark on a journey in Gotham solo or with one friend, as the game will support multiplayer. What’s important is that you won’t have to play together all the time, as the other player can join the game at any time. Unfortunately, neither crossplay nor split-screen has been confirmed yet.

When it comes to the gameplay, some similarities to Batman: Arkham Origins are inevitable as both games were developed by the same studio. Nonetheless, Gotham Knights should provide a slightly different experience as it includes four playable characters with unique skills and fighting styles. For instance, Red Hood uses ranged attacks, while Nightwing prefers melee combat. We can see glimpses of it in the gameplay demo and the Gotham Knights trailer.

The release date

The Gotham Knights game was revealed in August 2020, with the initial release date set for 2021. Unfortunately, in March 2021, the developers announced they had to postpone the premiere to give the game more time to deliver the best possible experience to players. The current Gotham Knights release date is October 25, 2022. 

Games that recovered from a horrible release

Players who want to visit Gotham as soon as possible can preorder the game. The price for the standard version of the game is 69.99 USD. Luckily, you can get it cheaper on GAMIVO

Gotham Knights platforms

The initial goal was to release Gotham Knights for Xbox One, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC. Sadly for the owners of the current-gen consoles, WB Games Montréal has changed its plans. Consequently, the game will be available only on next-gen machines and PCs. There is no information about the possible Nintendo Switch version.
