Warner Bros. Games and WB Games Montreal have released a new behind-the-scenes trailer for Gotham Knights that details the comic book inspirations for the game’s Batman family and more. Gotham Knights is the first modern game to exclusively star the Batfamily without Batman himself. The game follows the likes of Red Hood, Nightwing, Robin, and Batgirl after Batman dies.
New Gotham Knights Trailer Details the Batman Family
As one might imagine, Gotham City becomes overrun by criminals like Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze, and the Court of Owls. Without Bruce Wayne to aid them, the crime-fighting group must work to bring order to Gotham and continue Batman’s legacy. Although there’s some speculation from fans that Batman might not actually be dead, the game will center around these former sidekicks.
Another trailer for Gotham Knights discusses how the designers at WB Games Montreal made the story and explored the different Batman family characters. Notwithstanding sharing characters and looking outwardly comparative, Gotham Knights is inconsequential to Rocksteady’s Batman Arkham series. This gave WB Games Montreal the opportunity to make a unique story, however the engineer actually thought back on the Batfamily’s comic book history to assist with tracking down motivation for the game. As indicated by the video, the group has endeavored to truly layer these characters and guarantee the entire troupe has the profundity important to support the story. All things considered, most players likely have a more profound association with Batman, so WB Games Montreal has attempted to figure out how to raise these characters by taking motivation from their comic book narratives, as a matter of fact.

Gotham Knights is one of the most highly anticipated games of 2022 and is coming out in a packed holiday season. Although the Batman Arkham franchise was a single-player series, with the exception of Arkham Origins which had a PvP multiplayer mode, Gotham Knights is a two-player co-op game. This will allow for a lot of replayability and give friends the ability to fight crime together. Only time will tell if it resonates with players since it’s coming off the heels of one of the most respected superhero video game franchises of all time, but WB Games Montreal is certainly applying a lot of effort.
Gotham Knights will release on October 21st for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. Are you excited for the game? Let me know in the comments
