Gotham Knights is an upcoming open-world, action RPG set in the city of Gotham. While the game has no ties to the Arkham series, it is the first time we will be seeing the Batman universe in a video game since the release of Batman: Arkham Knight in 2015.
Gotham Knights may be taking in the less-than-scenic views of the Batman universe, but the game actually won’t focus on Batman himself, but instead, his team of apprentices.
Following the death of the beloved vigilante, the Batman family takes up the torch to protect the city of Gotham. Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood are all available as playable characters, and while you can only play as one character at a time, there will be a drop-in two-player co-op mode available.
Marvel’s Avengers didn’t quite deliver at launch, so we’re hoping Gotham Knights turns out a bit better.
