It took longer than expected, but finally the DC Comics universe returns to video games with force. While Rocksteady focuses on Suicide Squad, WB Games Montreal the team Batman: Arkham Origins– seeks to give a twist to the saga with a game of Batman Without Batman. Set in a Gotham after the death of Bruce Wayne, Gotham Knights present four young men preparing to bring order to the dangerous streets of the city: Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin y Red Hood.

Gotham Knight offer a gameplay similar to the series Arkham, with action in open world, but Each character has a unique style and abilities. Red Hood possesses many techniques of combat with weapons and extreme strength, Robin uses her extendable staff and is good at stealth, Batgirl is an expert in various fighting styles, she uses the tonfa and can hack systems; Nigthwing instead takes advantage of his acrobatic movements and defeats enemies with scrima batons.
The main novelty, in addition to the playable characters, is that this time we are talking about a An adventure that can be played alone or in co-op for two players, which will undoubtedly make your missions more replayable. There is also a progression system to upgrade superheroes and we will have the Batcycle to freely explore the map of Gotham, the hook or teleportation in the case of Robin.
And yes, there will be some RPG items to see, for example, the damage points we deal; In addition, as we evolve, so will the enemies and bosses, who will gain strength and new powers. It is up to you to focus and improve – your favorite protagonist or, on the contrary, to carry all of them in a balanced way and to change according to the task we face.
Include the Court of Owls
WB Games Montreal proposes us to solve various mysteries and become the worthy heir of the Dark Knight, the one who prevents chaos from taking over Gotham. We will face many of the typical villains of Batman Pingino, Mr. Freeze- and some new threats among which stands out the Court of Owls, a secret society that has moved in the shadows since the founding of the city. But I won’t be the only faction at war for control of Gotham …
In addition to solving the mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the history of the city and defeating famous villains in peak confrontations, you must become the new Dark Knight and prevent anarchy from taking over the five districts of the city. Take part in the main missions, discover secondary objectives and take advantage of the cooperative to hit with spectacular combos in a game that not neglect the narrative, so important in a game based on the comics of Batman.
While we still have much to discover from Gotham Knight, the game couldn’t be more promising for anyone who has enjoyed the saga Arkham, although his story does not continue that plot: be original and independent of what we have seen in comics or other games. The duration promises to be generous, since the first gameplay demo takes place after 12 hours of play and we imagine that it will not be exactly from a final section.
In conclusion, 2022 appears to be a very strong year for Warner Bros. From this Gotham Knights a Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, the promising Hogwarts Legacy or the review of everything Star Wars with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the editor has something for everyone; and looking a little further, in 2023, they await us Wonder Woman and, perhaps, the next thing from NetherRealm Studios.
