So you want to know about the Gotham Knights release date? While we were originally expecting the new DC open-world game to release last year, at least it’s not slipped again to 2023 like many projects have this year.
This spiritual successor to the popular Arkham series sees the “Batman family” stepping up to protect Gotham now that the masked crusader is dead. You’ll be able to control any one of the four iconic heroes, as well as play online drop-in/drop-out co-op with your friends. All we need now is the Gotham Knights release date to roll around, but luckily we won’t have too much longer to wait.
Gotham Knights release date
The Gotham Knights release date is October 22, 2022, on PC via Steam as well as Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Originally slated for 2021, Warner Bros. Games Montreal said they needed “more time to deliver the best possible experience for players”.
Gotham Knights characters
There are four main characters in Gotham Knights:
Finally, there is Red Hood. He doesn’t have a trailer yet, but we’ll update this article as soon as he gets one. If you’re interested in learning more, Red Hood was one of the original aliases for The Joker, although in more recent times it’s been used by a man named Jason Todd, and it’s Todd’s version of Red Hood that will feature in Gotham Knights.
Gotham Knights skins
Each character will have 11 different Gotham Knights skins you can choose between, and each skin will have different customisation options available so you can tweak your favourite outfit even further.
There will also be skins for the vehicles available in the game as well, one of which (The 233 Kustom Batcycle) is available if you pre-order.
Gotham Knights gameplay
In August, Warner Bros released the first 16 minutes of gameplay via an IGN First exclusive video, showing off the basics of investigations, combat, and even how you can use your grapple to traverse great distances in one go:
Gotham Knights story
In the wake of Batman’s death, a new wave of crime threatens to consume Gotham. The caped crusader’s successors step in to fill the void, as well as uncover the mystery behind Bruce Wayne’s disappearance that involves an ancient, secret society known as the Court of Owls.
The story is based on DC Comic’s Batman: Gotham Knights storyline that ran from 2000 – 2006 across 74 issues.
