After all of the delays and pushes, we finally have some true and solid gameplay for Gotham Knights to take in. Gameplay that has WB Games Montréal showing us all how Nightwing and Red Hood will function in the game and various other aspects we will need to employ in the mix too. Things like traversal and character progression in the mix of things that we will need to handle out there. The Gotham Knights will need to put all of it to the test out there against the Court of Owls and various other villains out there. It is time to get ready for it all with the game coming to the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on October 25th of this year.
It is nice to see that the team is taking time to make each of the Gotham Knights have a truly different feel and mechanics to them. Even if we only have two characters here, we can see how Nightwing is more on the acrobatic and dexterous side of things while Red Hood is on the brute force side. It is a little weird to see some of the enemies out there surviving gunshots to the face, but maybe they will make it make sense when the game does fire off. He does have the ability to shoot out various other ammo types out there that do different things and can have different triggers, so maybe they are non-lethal as much as possible. Then again, in Gotham Knights some of the characters do use "Soul Energies" to do some of the superhuman aspects of the game. That is how I think things will be explained a bit more. Have a look and see how it will all flow and keep the story going for the Bat.

Do you like how these two different Gotham Knights are going to function out there and did you expect them to function more like skins before now? Do you think it will have a solid reason why bullets do not kill instantly or will that just be video game magic out there? Are you sad to see that the PS4 and Xbox One will not be getting a version of all of this out there? Tell us all of your thoughts on this down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all if you wish. More for Gotham Knights will be on the way for us all, so be sure to keep checking back in for all of that and much more.
