It took a long time, but Warner Bros. Games Montreal just released the most in-depth look at its upcoming open world game yet. Gotham Knights† At the same time, the developer revealed some bad news for PS4 and Xbox One owners.
First the new trailer. The clip, which is only a shade over 13 minutes long, is essentially a guided look at the gameplay, focusing on the characters Nightwing and Red Hood. Lots of bad guys get beat up on rooftops and zipped between buildings, as well as a look at how the research elements work. Perhaps the most interesting thing about the video is how different the two characters seem to be; having multiple playable heroes is a big hook for Gotham Knightswhich also features Robin and Batgirl.
Gotham Knights was first unveiled in 2020 with plans to launch the following year, but after some delay, it is now slated to debut on October 25. While it was originally set to launch on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, the developer says Gotham Knights will no longer be released on previous generation consoles. “To provide players with the best possible gameplay experience, the game will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC and will not be available on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles,” Warner Bros. in a statement.
Games of different generations have had varying degrees of success of late, ranging from the surprisingly solid Horizon Forbidden West to the infamous launch of Cyberpunk 2077†
