Gotham Knights is an action RPG set in the DC Comics universe. The game was developed by Warner Bros. Montreal Games studio known from Batman: Arkham Origins .

Plot

The game is not related to the Batman: Arkham series. Gotham Knights takes full advantage of the solutions of this series, but presents a different version of the city and its inhabitants.

The plot of the game begins in a dramatic way. Batman's friends receive a message from him, prepared in case of his death.. Without the Dark Knight, the city quickly becomes chaotic, so the task of guarding the streets falls on four of his wards.

A key role in the scenario is also played by an organization known as The Court of Owls, which has been secretly shaping the history of Gotham for centuries. Its members prefer subtle manipulations, but if necessary, they can use violence equally effectively thanks to an army of assassins known as the Talons. During the game we can face classic supervillains such as Penguin, Two Face or Mr. Freeze.

Mechanics

There are four characters to choose from in Gotham Knights - Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl and Red Hood. Each of them has unique equipment and fighting style as well as separate skill trees and costume enhancement options.

Most of the mechanics of the game is arcade. The player explores the world and fights enemies with the help of a dynamic system that allows him/her to use a wide range of special techniques. The game also allows for a stealthy approach. Strong RPG elements were added to these typical action game mechanics. Characters and enemies have levels that determine their strength, and a key role is played by improving the hero's statistics.

The game uses a system of enemy level scaling. This means that their level of experience is matched to what our character has. What is interesting, however, the development of enemies results not only in strengthening their statistics. They also gain new abilities and attacks.

Gotham Knights is an open world game, so we get full freedom to explore Gotham. We can explore the city not only on foot, but also with motorcycles. Between missions, we return to The Belfry secret base, hidden in Wayne Tower, which is the tallest building in Gotham.

Game modes

The game allows you to play alone or in cooperation mode for two players. In case of a solo game we can freely change the character we direct.
