Today at San Diego Comic Con, WB revealed more details about Gotham Knights, including a new gameplay trailer featuring Batgirl.
The trailer highlights Batgirl’s combat, including her wrist blasters and a multi batarang throw. It also gave some insight into her character, with a focus on her desire to protect Gotham City regardless of what name that protection happens to go by. It concluded by announcing that anyone who pre-orders Gotham Knights now will receive a 233 Kustom Batcycle skin.
The SDCC panel included appearances from creative director Patrick Redding, narrative director Anne Lemay, cinematics director Wilson Mui, Cinematics Director, America Young (Batgirl), and Christopher Sean (Nightwing). Comics writer Scott Snyder also made a surprise guest appearance. A chunk of the panel discussion highlighted the ways in which Gotham Knights’ dialogue and tone will differ depending on which of the four characters is being played, with Lemay mentioning that WB Montreal did custom dialogue all throughout the game throughout each of their levels and cinematics, and all four choose to fight crime differently.
Gotham Knights has already shown off Robin and Nightwing gameplay previously, as well as multiple other trailers. Its version of Gotham City is supposedly even bigger than Arkham Knight’s. Gotham Knights is planned for release on October 25, 2022 for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X and S after its PS4 and Xbox One versions were officially cancelled earlier this year.
