Gotham Knights - Everything you need to know!
Protect Gotham from evil when Gotham Knights launches on October 21st 2022. Get up to speed with our handy recap guide while you wait!
What is Gotham Knights?
Gotham Knights is the latest title from WB Games Montréal, that is available on October 21st for PC, Xbox Series X and PS5. The developer is no stranger to the Batman series, having previously worked on Batman: Arkham Origins in 2013. Now almost 10 years later we're treated to Gotham Knights, a new open world 1-4 player game that puts you in the shoes of Batman's famous sidekicks: Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin and Redhood.
The Dark Knight himself has met his ultimately demise and it'll be up to our heroes to avenge him as they do battle with the mysterious Court of Owls, as well as coming face to face with classic villains such as Harley Quinn, Mr Freeze and more. Players will be able to play the game solo or team up with a friend in 2 player co-op. No matter the preferred hero, you can easily swap between characters to find the one that suits your playstyle and each one has their own unique abilities. For example, Batigirl uses her technical expertise to take control of enemy weapons and electronics, giving her an edge in a fight.
Gotham Knights plays much like the previous Batman Arkham games, allowing you to sneak from the shadows or get up close with your enemies. As you explore the open world you'll discover more activities and eventually take on "Boss Battles" that will test everything Batman taught you.
On the PC side of things, you can expect a wide range of options including Nvidia DLSS, Ray Traced Reflections, Multi Monitor support, higher framerates over console and much more. Though the game does require a fairly meaty setup so be sure you're ready for everything Gotham has to throw at you by checking the system requirements below.
Whether you're a Batman fan, or just someone who like Open World action games then Gotham Knights may be the game for you!
