The first look at Gotham Knights, WB Games Montreal's latest game

DC FanDome is in full swing and the series gave their our first look at Gotham Knights, after leading off the event with a fresh look at Wonder Woman: 1984. Set to be released in 2021, the cooperative-adventure game kicks off with Batman's death and his wards' rise to be Gotham's heroes. Playable characters include Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood, and Nightwing. There are villains like Mr Freeze and the Court of Owls standing up against them, but the creators say the game has been much bigger than they alone.

The WB Games Montreal is making the new title. Though Rocksteady Studio introduced the Arkham series, the Montreal team wanted up the storyline with Arkham Origins from 2013. Since last year, WB Games Montreal has been pointing out a new Batman project. While Rocksteady moves on to another house, with Suicide Squad: Destroy the League of Defense.

The next project of WB Games Montréal was officially opened after several months of waiting, leaks and official teasers. Gotham Knights, a cooperative action RPG set in the aftermath of the death of Batman, was confirmed for release in 2021 for both present and next-gen consoles. With criminals incessant across Gotham City, the followers of the Dark Knight have to work together to take back that night.

The WB Games Montreal Batman title, identified as Gotham Knights, is officially scheduled to be released in 2021 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. Shown at DC FanDome, the game features online two-player co-op, five Gotham City counties for players to discover, the driving ability around via Batcycle and an arsenal of fighting and equipment which will expand as the match progresses. The latest album trailer opened with a voiceover describing Gotham City's disaster, with the body of Bruce Wayne probably found in the rubble. The storylines shown include Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing and the Red Hood.

Though this game does offer the opportunity to play with all 4 Gotham Knights, thanks to a 2-player co-op, that game is played in its entirety alone, or with another pal. In addition, Gotham Knights adapted from traditional Arkham games in that it includes, among other improvements, a greater number of RPG elements including enemy levels and visual damage numbers.

Ultimately, it was verified that this Batman character also isn't the same as that of previous Arkham games. Although some may find this troubling, it also provides an exciting possibility, as the activities of the Arkham games do not bind up WB Montréal. Batman's posthumous greeting to his friends reveals how he died in the reveal trailer, with the Batcave having collapsed, but the Belfry is accessible for use in keeping Gotham safe.

The trailer features gameplay of all the warriors in action, and also a final tease that the Court of Owls would then play a big part in the game, but the developers shouted that "The mystery in Gotham Knights is much bigger than just the Court of Owls." We further got seven minutes of Gotham Knights gameplay, that people can then watch the trailer, for a thorough look at the forthcoming adventure.

The hype is strong to the game. The new film featuring the iconic hero was Batman: Arkham Knight, released in June 2015. The game is under production at a studio in Montreal, owned by Warner Bros.Hanging over the news is a June announcement that parent company AT&T Inc. is looking to sell $4 billion for Warner's gaming operation. Without a doubt, potential buyers will look at the responses to this video.

Fans will get their first look at Suicide Squad later today: Destroy The Justice League, a new game from Rocksteady Studios, a subsidiary of Warner Bros. The Warner Bros. is also producing a game for Harry Potter game for the next year.
