Sony has silently changed the Gotham Knights multiplayer entry on the PlayStation Store from 4-player co-op down to 2-player co-op. It’s a bit unclear whether this correction was made due to a mistake or if WB Games Montreal decided to dial back its multiplayer mode intentionally, but it’s leaning toward a typo since the developer has mentioned that the game was only up to two players in the past.
Gotham Knights co-op will be two players, not four
Gotham Knights was originally spotted by Reddit to have support for up to 4 players online, though some users at the time believed that this wasn’t correct or that the game might have a survival mode that could include four players. WB Games Montreal had delayed the game for a year to give its team more time to “deliver the best possible experience for players,” so it was possible that something new was added in the interim. The developer only just confirmed that the game was no longer going to be launching on PS4 and Xbox One, so it was very much a possibility.
But that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as the official PSN entry has been altered to state that Gotham Knights only “supports up to 2 online players with PS Plus.” A new gameplay trailer showcasing Nightwing and Red Hood follows through with this as no more than two heroes are ever seen at the same time in the footage. The trailer also shows off both superheroes eliminating the same group of enemies, pursuing a van of gang members, and following each other throughout the city with an easy-to-see marker hovering over a teammate.
Given that Gotham Knights features four characters — Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood, and Robin — it made sense that fans would assume that four-player co-op was a given. That said, having the developer focus on two-player co-op will lessen the load on the multiplayer servers and more easily allow for smaller areas to be integrated into a city with cramped alleyways and buildings.
