During DC FanDome, WB Games Montreal showed off a new story trailer for Gotham Knights as we get a good look at the Court of Owls. Just like they have been in the comics, TV, and other forms of media, the Court is always around and quietly looking on from afar while controlling everything. Now all four members of the remaining Bat-Family will be tackling the Court head-on in this new game, still set to be released sometime in 2022 (with no official date confirmed). We have both the new trailer and the behind-the-scenes chat with the developers down at the bottom.
Gotham Knights is a brand-new open world, third-person action RPG featuring the Batman Family as players step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, a new guard of trained DC Super Heroes who must rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman's death. An expansive, criminal underworld has swept through the streets of Gotham, and it is now up to these new heroes to protect the city, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops and fear to its criminals. Players must save Gotham from descent into chaos and reinvent themselves into their own version of the Dark Knight.
