Foreign as gotham knight’s launch draws closer more details on the game continue to emerge giving us a clearer picture of what to expect from the upcoming open world action rpg we’ve spoken quite a bit about the game of late but there’s plenty more left to discuss to that end here we’ll be going over a few more key details about gotham knights that you should know

About heading into the game encourages multiple playthroughs gotham knights has four playable heroes and is a pretty story focused game put those two together and you get a game with plenty of replayability at least that’s what the developers say speaking in a recent interview with play magazine game director jeff eleanor revealed that players won’t be able to see

All the story content in the game in a single playthrough because there’s so much content that is unique to the hero’s perception of what’s going on and what’s happened speaking about how that affects the game’s cutscenes cinematic director wilson mui said structurally we’re going to have a very similar scene that overall falls into the flow for each character

But each character has their own version of that so because they move differently they speak differently they have different histories with all different characters it allows us to make a scene that would be their vision of it if you were to look and play batgirl we’re gonna get batgirl’s version but if you play robin you’re gonna get robin’s version of the same

Scene some of them are very similar in how they do it but they’re going to have little subtle differences court of owls underground the court of owls is the primary antagonist in gotham knights and the way the game is implementing them from a design perspective sounds quite intriguing the chord is essentially a shadowy organization that has secretly ruled gotham

For centuries and has continued doing so through many historical shifts and events as part of that the court has also apparently built a whole underground network beneath the city that takes the form of both separate dungeons and areas as well as areas that are connected seamlessly within the open world itself speaking to ign open world level designer director

Christoph mcmahon said what the underground allows us to do is kind of reveal that cross-section of the city so we have areas like that where you drop in you keep going and you see things that you didn’t know were there that you didn’t know the city was built on top of gotham city details in building gotham knight’s massive open world version of the titular city

Developer wb games montreal has also ensured to inject plenty of variety which it has done by tying different parts of the city’s history to specific districts the five districts of gotham city in the game area are tied to the city’s five founding families and each has its own distinct visual style architecture and level design the oldest borough called old gotham

Was established by the keynes the industrial lower gotham by the cobblepots downtown gotham and art deco district by the elliots north gotham by the arkhams and the newest richest and most modern district new gotham by the waynes every borough also has a signature building of its own that was built by their respective families and yes north gotham signature building

Is the infamous arkham asylum skill trees progression is going to be the key system in gotham knights what with it being an rpg and it does seem like no matter which character you’re playing as you won’t be short on options on that front each character will have four skill trees offering unique upgrades and allowing players to tailor their playstyle in different

Ways three out of those four skill trees will be unique to each character while a fourth called knighthood will be common across all four and it will be unlocked at a certain point in the story in total that gives us 13 unique skill trees across the four characters momentum abilities another crucial aspect of progression and variation in combat seems to be momentum

Abilities which are special attacks tied to different combo presses momentum abilities unlike the skill trees we spoke of just now are unlocked by completing challenges which will entail doing certain things a certain number of times meanwhile momentum abilities can also be powered up by investing in the appropriate skills granting advantages that those abilities

Might not have out the gate crime scene investigations the four superheroes who have stepped up to fill the void left behind by batman are of course detectives as well just like their mentor and using those detective skills will also play a part when it comes to the actual gameplay gotham knight’s players will often run into crime scene investigations where players

Will investigate their surroundings and look for clues to get past obstacles from what little we’ve seen of this so far it seems like investigations will be more about interacting with the right objects and following the game’s instructions rather than actually having to do some deducing so hopefully the mechanic will add more depth as the game progresses villain

Encounters wb games montreal has stressed on multiple occasions now that gotham knights isn’t going to suffer from the pitfalls that so many open world rpgs do these days like level gating with that in mind how does the game approach boss fights you’ll be coming across a number of famous villains in the game and interesting fights against them will be different

Based on your level their base stats and health pool will vary across but the kinds of attacks and moves that they use during the fight will also change co-op takedowns though you can play all of gotham knights as a single player game the game is emphasizing co-op heavily which means there will be some mechanics that you’ll be locked out of if you’re playing solo

One of them is co-op takedowns which will see both players working together and combining their abilities to defeat enemies apparently the synergy between both players during combat is going to be an important factor speaking to game informer director jeff eleanor said we’ll have co-op takedowns designed to showcase the physicality of the characters working together

Really there’s a lot of synergy in how one’s hero’s abilities influences the fight versus another nightwing is the strongest indicator of this a lot of his abilities are about having buffs for his friends and protecting others alfred bruce wayne may no longer be around in gotham knights but his loyal butler alfred is very much part of the equation and will have

A role to play in the story voiced by gildar jackson alfred will continue to provide behind the scenes support to the four heroes and every time you go back to the belfry tower the game’s hub he’ll be there too it should be interesting to see how he’s dealing with bruce’s death and how he’s helping the others deal with it suits collecting blueprints will allow you

To craft new suits for your heroes and gotham knights and apparently there’s going to be quite a few of them as for wb games montreal the game features 11 unique suit styles with each style offering their own stats and visual style across all styles there are 44 suits in total while customization will entail logos cowls gauntlets boots and colorways while transmog

Will also be included players will be able to mix and match the different pieces within a suit style but with each style pertaining to specific skills being able to mix and match across styles will not be possible capable heroes batman is supposedly dead in gotham knights and his four young proteges are stepping in to take up his mantle but even though they’re

All less experienced than the dark knight they’re not exactly green kids speaking with ign creative director patrick redding said that robin nightwing red hood and batgirl are going to be very strong and capable even when the game begins reading said it was very important for us that these heroes our knights are already awesome at the start of the game it’s not

A function of them being ineffective as crime fighters quite the opposite they’re all effectively graduates of the batman school of crime fighting so when they start they are at their most similar in the sense that they have a lot of these basic tools of combat and stealth and moving around the world and using their grapple and then it’s really over the course of

The game that they truly diverge into their own flavor of what a dark night of gotham city should be harley quinn one of several rogues that have been confirmed to be appearing in gotham knights is harley quinn even though joker apparently won’t as per the developers though wb games montreal’s take on the character is going to be a little different gotham knight’s

Harley quinn is slightly older and more experienced version of the character which means she’s much more dangerous confident and imposing as a super villain that will impact everything from her character design to how she behaves to how she decides to take you on in combat no microtransactions warner bros as a publisher has a spotty history with microtransactions

In its games with middle earth’s shadow of war and mortal kombat 11 just being a couple of examples of major releases with a shifty monetization methods and one of those was an entirely single player game thankfully it doesn’t seem like that’s going to be an issue with gotham knights wb games montreal has confirmed that there are no micro transactions in the game

Which means every cosmetic every piece of gear and every unlockable will be earned in game rather than having to be paid for pc features gotham knights recently received a trailer specifically for its pc version which confirmed some interesting details the game will feature support for 4k resolution ultra wide ray traced reflections and multi-monitor setups on pc

While other features include ai enhanced upscaling via intel xcss unlocked frame rates and a range of customizable graphics options for minimum and maximum render resolutions taa up sampling fov ambient occlusion and more canceled last gen versions gotham knights is launching for pc ps5 and xbox series xns but of course originally it was supposed to be a cross

Gen title with the cancellation of ps4 and xbox one versions only being officially announced earlier this year so why exactly did wb games make that decision according to executive producer floor marty the game’s scope and scale meant that the development team ended up prioritizing and focusing on the current gen consoles rather than trying to make the game work

On last gen machines and sacrificing important elements of the experience in the process whether or not that was the right call is a question we’ll only be able to answer once we’ve actually played the game but thankfully it won’t be too long before that happens hey did you know that we had gaming bolts upload new videos every day stick around drop a like subscribe
