They’ve appeared before in videogames but the Bat-family have never really had a chance to take centre stage until now. Warner Bros Gotham Knights promises action and adventure in Batman’s home city, just without the Dark Knight himself.
The story sees Batman’s protegees take over the streets of Gotham after Batman’s Death and charts their path to becoming its protectors.
Warner Bros have also released a trailer for the game, due out next week. Told from the perspective of Alfred Pennyworth, the video looks at the inner reflection that Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin all go through as each Knight rises to the challenge of protecting an increasingly vulnerable Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. The trailer also provides a glimpse of the mysterious Court of Owls and the growing threat it poses.
Gotham Knights is scheduled to release worldwide on Oct. 21 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
