The Penguin will also be present in the game.
Yesterday evening DC and Warner Bros. Games showed a new trailer of the story of Gotham Knights, in the context of DC Fandome. The new video, which finally returns to show the game by WB Games Montréal, introduces us to the Court of Owls, a secret society made up of Gotham City’s wealthiest families, with which our Knights will find themselves dealing.
The superhero team, consisting of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, will also find himself having to contend with Oswald Cobblepot, alias the Penguin, Batman’s historical enemy who seems to be very knowledgeable about the Owls and their intentions.
One was also shown special behind the scenes video, with commentary by Jim Lee (cartoonist, editor and creative director of DC), Scott Snyder (writer and co-creator of “The Court of Owls”), Greg Capullo (cartoonist and co-creator of “The Court of Owls” ), Patrick Redding (creative director of Gotham Knights) and Ann Lemay (narrative director of Gotham Knights), in which we can discover the background of the choice to include this particular antagonist in the game.
Gotham Knights will allow players to choose which of the four aforementioned heroes to impersonate and it will be possible to play single or two-player online cooperative.
Gotham Knights is scheduled for release in 2022 on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X / S.
