Setting & Gameplay:
The game is set in Gotham City, after the deaths of Bruce Wayne / Batman and Police Commissioner James Gordon, which has resulted in a rise of crime and lawlessness.
Players assume the role of Batman’s former proteges: Dick Grayson / Nightwing, Barbara Gordon / Batgirl , Tim Drake / Robin, and Jason Todd / Red Hood – as they attempt to continue his legacy by protecting Gotham upon receiving a pre-recorded message from Batman.
During the game, the heroes encounter several supervillains, including the Court of Owls and Mr. Freeze. Supporting characters include Bruce’s former butler Alfred Pennyworth and Police Captain Renee Montoya, one of the few honest cops left in the city.
Despite WB Games Montréal’s previous work developing Batman: Arkham Origins, and the fact that Gotham Knights features many of the same characters from the Batman: Arkham series/universe, the new game is an original story separate from those games.
From solving mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in the city’s history to defeating notorious villains in epic confrontations, you must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save the streets from descent into chaos.
Gotham Knights is an open-world, action RPG set in a dynamic and interactive Gotham City. In either solo-play or with one other hero you can patrol Gotham’s five distinct boroughs and drop in on criminal activity wherever you find it.
Tim Drake a.k.a Robin may be the youngest of the Batman Family but he’s also the smartest and a master of deductive reasoning. Tim is a true believer in Batman’s mission and is motivated by the conviction that Gotham City needs a hero rather than by personal loss. Batman was a mentor of the highest caliber who personified the type of man Tim hopes to become.
An expert fighter armed with his collapsible quarterstaff and skilled in the art of stealth, Tim also possesses a background in combined psychological warfare and behavioral sciences, all of which sets the stage for him to accomplish any mission.
Jason Todd a.k.a Red Hood is an intense and volatile anti-hero. It all stems from dying a violent death and then being forcibly resurrected by one of Batman’s most dangerous foes. He has trouble keeping his temper in check, but he will not hesitate to step into the line of fire when a friend is threatened. Red Hood wants crime to pay because Gotham City is built on a foundation of corruption, and he’s been on the receiving end of it far too often.
Jason has trained to reach the peak of human strength, and he’s proficient in multiple combat techniques with all manner of weapons—both traditional and high-tech. After reconciling with the Batman Family, he has embraced Batman’s non-lethal combat methods.
Dick Grayson a.k.a Nightwing is a natural leader, an optimist, and the most charismatic of the Batman Family. He grew up in an unorthodox but loving circus family, so he values close personal bonds. Dick believes that, for the fight to be worth it, there must be something real to fight for; and that something has always been other people. He was Batman’s first protégé before becoming a hero in his own right.
Dick boasts mastery in acrobatics and is an expert at taking down enemies with his signature dual escrima sticks.
Few people can match Barbara Gordon a.k.a Batgirl in terms of raw willpower and determination. Barbara has always been a person of action. In her mind, backing down is never an option. Having one of Gotham City’s most well-known police commissioners as a father had a massive impact on her. Jim Gordon gave his life for Gotham, and now she wants to make sure it wasn’t in vain. After a face-off that put Barbara in a wheelchair, she became Oracle, a powerful information and communications expert. With extensive training and rehabilitation, she recovered from her wounds, and returned to active duty as Batgirl.
Barbara is highly trained in a variety of fighting styles, such as kickboxing, capoeira, and jiu-jitsu. Her signature weapon is the tonfa. Barbara also displays great skill when it comes to hacking or coding in computers and technological systems to dig for information.
