Gotham Knights, an upcoming DCgame is said to release on October 25th, 2022. Because the game is coming out soon, it seemed it would be right to help you, as a reader, learn about it before you get the game to play.

The game is set in a world where Batman is dead and his previous four sidekicks are left to save Gotham City from its newer threats, like the main villain of the game, the Court of Owls. These four sidekicks include Nightwing, Red Hood, Robin, and Batgirl. Nightwing being Batman’s first robin, Dick Grayson, who Bruce Wayne adopted after Grayson had to suffer the loss of his parents. Then there is Red Hood, Batman’s second robin who died at the hands of the Joker, but came back angry and lethal. In this game though, Jason has retaliated at killing and now has restraint when it comes to taking a life. Then there is the current robin, Tim Drake, who found out who Batman was and forced Batman to make him the hero he is today. Lastly there is Batgirl, the daughter of Batman’s ally Commissioner Gordon. She was once handicapped, but after physical therapy and training, she is ready for the field.

In terms of game mechanics, there will be similar mechanics from the Arkham games put into Gotham Knights. The Arkham games were a previous four Batman games that let you put on the batsuit and take criminals like the Joker, Scarecrow, Black Mask, Two-Face, Penguin, and more down. But it is also said that Gotham Knights will have its own unique levelling system. It has also been said that two players can team up as one of the two heroes in co-op, and play the story together. Other than that, not much is known.

The game has a website where you can read about the characters, the villains, media surrounding the game (like trailers), and the community of the game. The website is gothamknightsgame.com and you can go check it out for yourself if you want to learn more about Gotham Knights.
