Gotham Knights’ Open World Was Optimized For Co-Op
Gotham Knights was first announced throughout the DC Fandome streaming event. And even though it’s not a part of the well-known Arkham series, the visuals and gameplay are notified by the popular Batman games. Players can take on Gotham’s criminal underbelly as Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing, and Red Hood. In a deep-dive interview with GamesRadar, Gotham Knights’ executive manufacturer Fleur Marty and innovative director Patrick Redding talked about WB Montreal’s objective to create a seamless, interesting two-player co-op experience while staying real to the Arkham series’ gameplay.
“We have actually completely upgraded the battle system in order for it to work well in co-op,” stated Marty. “Naturally, we’re still a brawler, and some of the mechanics will not feel totally alien for individuals who played and took pleasure in the Arkham series, however it remains in lots of ways extremely various.” Additionally, the entirety of Gotham City has been upgraded so that co-operative play feels more natural and intuitive. Redding mentioned how co-op experiences will make gamers feel like an unstoppable duo, “The two-player dynamic fits the fantasy and the Gotham City setting. The ‘duo’ or team-up is such a central feature of deep space that there’s a literal shorthand for it in the comics, animation, movie, and TV variations. Gotham is a city of alleys and rooftops, so the footprint for gameplay needs to be compatible with that.”
Gotham Knights introduces for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2021. For more details on the game, take a look at our own interview with Gotham Knights’ developers.
