Everybody has seen Batman in video games before, so why not create one where the player’s mission is to make other characters take the role of the Dark Knight? This is precisely what the upcoming game Gotham Knights proposes: Batman is dead, or at least that’s what everybody thinks. Therefore, it’s up to his friends (Nightwing, Red Hood, Batgirl, and Robin) to save Gotham City instead.
While hardcore Batman fans would yell from the top of their lungs that nobody could ever replace the Caped Crusader, Gotham Knights wants to prove them otherwise. And we have to admit that it’s pretty convincing, judging from the trailer:
The upcoming game is being developed by WB Games Montréal, and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will publish it. 2021 is the year of the release, and we would indeed like to know a more precise date.
Next-generation consoles support
As you might have expected already, you’ll have the chance to play Gotham Knights on any of the upcoming next-generation consoles PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Both gaming gears will arrive by the end of the year, and they will grant new immersive ways of playing your favorite games.
The description for Gotham Knights can surely motivate you to be willing of playing the game more:
Batman is dead. It is now up to the Batman Family – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin – to protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals. You must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save Gotham from chaos.
Your legacy begins now. Step into the Knight.
Except for the next-generation console availability, the game will also be playable on some of the most usual platforms. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners will have the privilege of playing Gotham Knights, as well as those who prefer their games on a PC.
