Warner Bros. Games Montreal and DC unveiled on Saturday the new video game Gotham Knights, an open-world, action role-playing experience.
Set in the Batman Universe, the game features playable characters including Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, who must protect Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. Players will be able to explore five different neighborhood boroughs using different combat moves and abilities, as well as take advantage of the Batcycle.
Along the way, the iconic villain Mr. Freeze will appear and attempt to envelop Gotham City in ice.
“With Gotham Knights, the team at Warner Bros. Games Montréal is bringing the Batman Family of characters to life in a unique way to delight both fans and new players, “said David Haddad, president, Warner Bros. Games. “As we embark on a new era of interactive storytelling, our development team has been diligently working to create a new, in-depth experience within DC’s Batman Universe.”
Patrick Redding, creative director at WB Games Montreal, added, “The team is thrilled to announce Gotham Knights and share our work in bringing a different story of the DC Super Heroes to the forefront. We’re looking forward to fans playing and enjoying a lot of action as this new guard of strong DC Super Heroes in Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, while solving an original mystery set against a living, breathing Gotham City.”
Gotham Knights is playable either solo or as a two-player online cooperative game, and will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and the next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2021.
