Like yesterday teased, new Gotham Knights The gameplay trailer is dedicated to Nightwing and the Red Hood. The 13-minute video introduces players to the game by showing the moves of both characters, as well as giving a more complete overview of its systems as a whole.
The video begins with game director Jeff Ellenor introducing the title and then cuts to a moody, tone-setting scene. He then cuts to Nightwing and his jet-powered glider called the Flying Trapeze, a reference to his history as an aerialist. He then falls on top of a couple of thugs and pummels them using various melee and ranged abilities, which only slightly resembles Arkham games (to which this game is not connected). According to Ellenor, Nightwing is a more acrobatic type of fighter, as shown by the way he glides across the battlefield. He also has access to elemental abilities such as a freeze wave that can block an enemy and temporarily take them out of combat.
The Red Hood then rushes to the rescue, albeit in an unexpected way. Because he was resurrected by the Assassin cult, he can jump through the air using his «soul energy», a style of movement far beyond any previous game in other Batman games. The Red Hood fights with his weapons, firing non-lethal projectiles to deal damage with his cannon fu. Many of his abilities seem to revolve around weapons, as he can throw a sticky grenade at an enemy and then shoot it to detonate it.
The gameplay demo then moved on to Red Hood on the Batcycle, which can be accessed by all four playable characters. He can be seen dodging obstacles, chasing an enemy vehicle, and shooting when there is a gap.
He then slows down and takes the audience to the bell tower, home base. Players can check out missions or craft and equip new items and gear. It’s an RPG, which means there’s a lot of progress in it. All parts of the armor seemed to have different stats and rarity levels, just like many RPGs. It’s not much different Avengers Marvel, but the outfit at least changes the look of the character in this game. They also had different shaders that allowed users to change the color of each set of gear.

Stealth is also one of the pillars of the gameplay. Nightwing has infiltrated the enemy stronghold and quietly eliminated every guard, and these animations will be different for the four characters. There are also ambush attacks that are faster but make more noise and sound a bit like the loud takedowns in the latter. Arkham games. Detective Vision is returning in one form or another as characters gain access to AR vision that can help solve puzzles, but it’s not as intrusive as Detective Vision.
There were a few other tidbits of information in the demo, such as that open-world activities have their own sets of rules and optional objectives, how users can fast travel using Fast Bat, and that the user interface is customizable. However, there seems to be much more to be said about Gotham Knightsespecially since there are two characters that Warner Bros. yet to be shown. Considering he appears in the trailer for the event and the fact that the game’s Twitter account retweeted the tweet containing it, it’s likely that Gotham Knights will reappear at Summer Game Fest in June to reveal more.
