There are several DC themed video games currently in production: if we know that Rocksteady is taken from the development of Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League , of which we have just seen a new video, Gotham Knights is instead in the hands of WB Games Montreal .
The game, which caused a lot of hype at the announcement some time ago, will be set in a Gotham City that is experiencing a very complicated moment, because … Batman is dead.
This will be the premise of the events, and this will be the reason why we will take on the role not of the famous Batman, but of Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood and Nightwing, forced to join forces precisely to remedy upon the death of the celebrated hero and ensure that his desire for a safer and more honest Gotham lives on.
Gotham Knights , as promised in recent days, is one of the protagonists of DC Fandome and, to be honest, even before the video went on stage, it’s already gone online, as noted on ResetEra . The trailer, which we propose below in our news, focuses mainly on the atmosphere of the game and its protagonists , not showing sequences of direct gameplay.
As you can see, there is still no more precise launch window : the previous indication of a release in 2022 remains valid (made known after a postponement) and we will have to wait a little longer to see if it can be closer to the beginning or the end of the game.
Sure, Warner Bros. will plan to outdistance Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad on its 2022 calendar, but for now we don’t even know when exactly it will arrive Suicide Squad .
In the meantime, we remind you that the developers had explained their decision to have Batman die to give a narrative premise to the game, and had confirmed major differences compared to the Arkham universe – of which this game is not part, representing a separate narration.
If you want to get closer to the games of the Arkham universe, instead, check out the box set from the Batman Arkham Collection .
