Gotham Knights is a new, fresh take on Gotham City, focusing on a younger cast of superheroes who are tasked with saving the city after Bruce Wayne’s death. But, with four playable characters and an entire open world to explore, players who are excited about the game want to know when the Gotham Knights release date is.
With co-op support for you and a friend and the ability to play as Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl, and Red Hood, Gotham Knights will offer a lot of customisation for each of them. All four characters will also have their own unique playstyle when it comes to combat and traversal.
We have already seen a host of villains and gameplay changes that should help Gotham Knights stand out from previous games. So, let’s dive into some of those changes and each character’s abilities, as well as the most important detail of them all: the Gotham Knights release date.
Gotham Knights Release Date
Gotham Knights is currently scheduled to be released in 2022. The game was originally set to release in 2021, but was delayed in order to give the game “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players”.
GOTHAM KNIGHTS Platforms
Gotham Knights is set to release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
Details about features such as cross-play, cross-progression, and new-gen-exclusive features haven’t been announced yet.
GOTHAM KNIGHTS Gameplay
We have already seen a fair chunk of Gotham Knights gameplay, including an extended demo from DC Fandome 2020.
You can watch that gameplay sequence below, which focuses on the co-op gameplay:
Another trailer, focusing on the game’s story was then showcased at DC Fandome 2021. This trailer focuses on the Court of Owls, who will play a major role in the game’s narrative:
A dev-diary detailing the Court of Owls also touches on the history of the group and their transition to games.
GOTHAM KNIGHTS Abilities
We don’t know too much about how each character will play in Gotham Knights as we haven’t seen gameplay from all four of the game’s playable characters.
However, some abilities that were spotted in the gameplay from last year include Robin being able to teleport via the Justice League’s satellite and Batgirl being able to summon a field of bats to protect herself and attack enemies.
You can also combine attacks between you and your partner to take down enemies together.
