Players assume the role of one out of four characters to complete the said objective. However, this will be one of the first Batman-inspired titles to allow players to protect Gotham with friends, as Gotham Knights will have co-op capability with up to two players. In case you missed it, or if can’t figure out how to enable it, here’s what you need to know on how to play co-op multiplayer in Gotham Knights.

  • Friends of Friends
  • Invite Only

In the Social Menu, you’ll have access to a wide variety of categories. If you select “Group”, you can view who’s in your party as well as their in-game stats. “Friends” shows you the status and in-game stats of your friends on your platform of choice. “Recent” shows who you’ve played with, and “Blocked” shows you players you may have banned from playing with you due to mischievous behavior.

In order to invite a friend to your lobby, hover over their name and select Invite Player. This will send a console level notification that your friend can accept to join your lobby or that can work in reverse for you to join their lobby.

Now to close out the guide, let’s tackle how many players you can experience Gotham with.

How Many People Can Play Gotham Knights?

At the moment, WB Games Montréal have stated that co-op in Gotham Knights is two player only.

While the decision is rather disappointing, there is hope that this could be revisited. A recent announcement from WB Montréal has announced the arrival of a 4-player arena mode called “Heroic Assault”. This mode is set to arrive Nov. 29, a little over a month after the launch of the Gotham Knights. Provided this mode receives a decent amount of feedback, perhaps gamers could see the game’s story mode revisited to support 4-player shenanigans.
