Gotham Knights’ combat system has been ‘completely redesigned’ with a focus on co-op

Must read


WB Games Montreal has revealed that although Gotham knights will have a similar feel to the Batman Arkham games, the combat has been “completely redesigned” to work well for the game to focus on co-op play. GamesRadar, WB Games Montreal, who developed Batman: Arkham Origins, spoke about this change and how players can expect more “variety and challenge” in Gotham Knights.“We’ve completely redesigned the combat system to work well in co-op,” said Fleur Marty, executive producer of Gotham Knights. “Sure, we’re still a brawler, and some of the mechanics won’t feel totally foreign to people who have played and enjoyed the Arkham series, but it’s in many ways very different.”

Gotham Knights, which offers two-player online co-op, follows the story of Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood as they attempt to protect Gotham City after the fall of Batman. There will be five Gotham City boroughs for players and their friends to explore, and plenty of iconic Batman villains will need to stop.

The two-player dynamic matches the fantasy and setting of Gotham City. The ‘duo’ or team is such a central feature of the universe that there’s a literal shortcut for it in the comic book versions, animation, film and television, “said Patrick Redding, Creative Director of Gotham Knights.” Gotham is a city of alleys and rooftops, so the gameplay imprint has to be compatible with that. “

Even if you’re playing solo, players will be happy to know that story progression will be shared among all characters, so you can upgrade to any hero without worrying about being under-leveled.

“Since the story progression is shared between all the characters, it also makes sense that you don’t have to upgrade them from scratch every time you want to change. It also remains very consistent in terms of the storytelling. “said Marty. “Since the other members of the Batman family are somehow always present in the background, while you are in the world fighting crime or unraveling the mystery, they don’t sit idle. . So it makes sense that they also progress. And get stronger. “

Gotham Knights will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, and PC in 2021. For more information, see the different fighting styles of the heroes, why WB Games Montreal killed Batman, and how the online cooperation will work.
