Cooperative Bat-adventure Gotham Knights delayed to 2022
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
Last year, Warner Bros. announced Gotham Knights as a brand new Bat Family-based project coming out of the Arkham Origins developer Warner Bros. Games Montréal. While the studio had gone silent regarding the game after its announcement, today it delivered some bad news for fans, revealing that Gotham Knights is now slated for 2022 instead of 2021 as originally planned.
"We are giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players," said the developer in an announcement on its Twitter page, adding that more Gotham Knights information will be landing in the coming months. Check out the original announcement trailer below.
The gameplay should be familiar to Arkham series fans, though this time, the entire game can be played cooperatively with up to four players that will assume the roles of Nightwing, Robin, Red Hood, and Batgirl. While the storyline takes place after Batman's apparent death, this is not set in the Arkham franchise universe made by Rocksteady Studios.
Speaking of Rocksteady, the original Batman studio is also working on a cooperative game of its own under Warner Bros., that being Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, which is actually set in the original Arkham universe. This game is already aiming for a 2022 launch, so it appears DC fans will get two action co-op games during the year at this rate.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League gets a cinematic trailer, comes out 2022
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
Rocksteady Studios finally unveiled its next project today, with the developer dropping a cinematic trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League during the DC FanDome event, catch it above. The studio is known for its work in the massively popular Batman: Arkham trilogy, and rumors regarding its next project have been circulating for quite a while.
Unfortunately, the game is not coming out anytime soon, as Rocksteady is aiming for a 2022 launch on next-gen platforms. During the trailer, the supervillain squad (Task Force X) is seen in dawdling in Metropolis as an attack by Brainiac is occurring, but soon, it is activated by Amanda Waller and sent after Superman, who is acting quite villainous.
The third-person shooter will be offering a four-player cooperative experience following the misadventures of Harley Quinn, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, and King Shark. Playing solo will also be possible, which will let the player jump between characters at any point.
Rocksteady says each member of the squad will arrive with a unique moveset, weaponry, skills, and "enhanced traversal abilities to freely explore the dynamic open-world of Metropolis." It also sounds like the game is set in the studio's original Arkham universe, continuing that storyline.
Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is incoming to PC, Xbox Series X, and PlayStation 5. Earlier today, Warner Bros. Games Montréal unveiled another DC Universe-set game, Gotham Knights.
Gotham Knights has the Bat Family going up against the Court of Owls
by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe
During the DC FanDome stream today, Warner Bros. Games Montréal - the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins - announced its next game set in the DC universe: Gotham Knights. As can be seen in the cinematic announcement trailer above, Batman/Bruce Wayne is presumed dead, and members of the Bat Family are taking up the role of being Gotham's protectors.
The popular Court of Owls comic book story arc will be a large part of the game it seems, and the group is probably connected to Batman's passing. Robin, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Batgirl are all playable characters this time, and online cooperative play is available too, letting players team up with different heroes to "protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals."
The developer also shared a pre-alpha gameplay video of Gotham Knights for fans to witness during the stream, which can be seen above. The playthrough has Batgirl being joined by another player who's taking the role of Robin, as they team up against Mr. Freeze, giving a glimpse at the open world of Gotham and a more focused mission similar to the ones seen in the Arkham series.
Gotham Knights is coming in 2021, and while platforms were not announced today, it's likely that the title will be hitting the next-generation consoles and PC. There is another DC universe game announcement incoming from the DC FanDome stream later today, with Rocksteady prepping to showcase Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League at 17:10 PDT / 20:10 EDT.
