Finally we know what the next Batman game is and well, it may not be exactly what people had in mind.
The title of the game is Gotham Knights and the major aspect is that you will not play as Batman as he is presumably dead. Rather, players will assume the role of Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood. According to WB Montreal:
Introducing an original story set in the DC’s Batman Universe, Gotham Knights offers a dynamic and interactive Gotham City where an exploding criminal element has swept through the streets. With the Belfry as their base of operations, this new era of heroes will solve mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the city’s history and must defeat notorious villains in epic confrontations.
The game arrives in 2021 and will be playable in single player or two player co-op on all PlayStation and Xbox consoles along with PC. Below you can find the trailer and 7 minute gameplay walkthrough from DC FanDome.
This looks to be a new and interesting take on the Batman Universe as it relates to games so it will be interesting to see how fans respond. So far, the response seems to be overwhelmingly positive and there’s an excitement in the air about it. We’ll definitely be following this one closely!
