DC FanDome bring back Gotham Knights with a new story trailer. No gameplay was revealed but the behind-the-scenes footage showed us that the game will put a new spin on the Court of Owls. Take a look at the trailer below.
The game is set in Gotham City after the death of Bruce Wayne / Batman (voiced by Michael Antonakos) and Police Commissioner James Gordon which has resulted in a rise of crime and lawlessness. Players assume the role of Batman’s former proteges – Dick Grayson / Nightwing (Christopher Sean), Barbara Gordon / Batgirl (America Young), Tim Drake / Robin (Sloane Morgan Siegel), and Jason Todd / Red Hood (Stephen Oyoung) – as they attempt to continue his legacy by protecting Gotham upon receiving a pre-recorded message from Batman.
During the game, the heroes encounter several supervillains, including the Court of Owls and Mr. Freeze. Supporting characters include Bruce’s former butler Alfred Pennyworth (Gildart Jackson) and Police Captain Renee Montoya, one of the few honest cops left in the city.
Scott Snyder, co-creator of the Court of Owls had this to say:
“One of the joys of writing comics is the hope that someone will take that story and make it something their own. I think the folks at Warner Bros. have done a fantastic job at translating and evolving the Court of Owls into the game.”
Gotham Knights will hit stores in 2022 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S & PC.
