With Warner Bros. Games deciding to push Gotham Knights back to an Oct. 25 release date this year, fans are hoping that the additional time for development is being put to good use, with the Court of Owls set to transform Gotham City into their own. In a new tease, it appears that we will see more of Gotham Knights really soon, with an update to be shared on May 10 at 6 a.m PST / 9 a.m EST.
This comes via the official Gotham Knights Twitter account, which brings the focus to two of the heroes that players will get to play as – Nightwing and Red Hood. There could be gameplay being shown off, specifically about their choice of weapons as well as the powers associated with them. That leaves more to come in regards to the other two playable characters of Batgirl and Robin.
It might also be a good time to share more details about the co-op play in Gotham Knights. So far, online play has been confirmed to allow for up to two players to join in the fun, but with rumors circulating that four-player co-op is a possibility, WB Games can take the opportunity to clear the air and get fans excited or nip the rumors in the bud.
Either way, with just five months to go before the launch of the game, new details will always be appreciated by the fan base. You can check out the official description of the game below:
