We got new gameplay information for the new upcoming video game, Gotham Knights! The co-op RPG game, Gotham Knights, is a game being made by WB Montreal, and you’ll take control of the Bat Family after Bruce Wayne’s apparent death.
Here’s information about Gotham Knights From GamesRadar:
The game allows you to switch to a different character pretty much any time you want, as long as you go back to The Belfry to do so. With the Batcave destroyed the moment Code Black was initiated, The Belfry is the new base of operations for the Gotham Knights. This is where you’ll go in the daytime to regroup and rest, push the narrative forward as you accept new challenges and missions, and tinker with your heroes’ suits, weapons, gear, and playstyle build. When night falls, and you’re ready to get back out on patrol, you’ll be able to head back out into Gotham as any one of the characters, and without any fear of being under-levelled or prepared.
Since the story progression is shared between all the characters, it also makes sense that you don’t have to level them up from scratch every time you want to switch. It also stays very coherent in terms of our narrative. Since the other members of the Batman family are always present in some way in the background, while you’re out in the world fighting crime or unravelling the mystery, they don’t stay inactive. So it makes sense that they are also progressing and getting stronger.
This design decision serves two purposes. First, it ensures we won’t be spending all of our time stuck in The Belfry arguing with a friend over who will get to play as Barbara Gordon. Secondly, there won’t be any need to grind through experience for character unlocks and levels. Enemies will scale to your progression level too, ensuring that we’ll always feel free to experiment with different heroes and their unique playstyles, weapons, and abilities. Gotham Knights is going to present us with the most challenging mission the Bat-Family has ever faced, and you’ll be able to tackle it on your own terms.
The gameplay mechanics sounds good. I’m a Nightwing fan and was planning to play the game as him throughout the majority of the game, so it’s good to know that the other characters won’t be under-leveled if I decide to switch or change during the story. WB Montreal also made Batman: Arkham Origins, and it’s incredibly underrated. Gotham Knights are going to be a damn good game, and I can’t wait.
