Expected on October 25 on PS5Xbox Series and PC, Gotham Knights continues to unfold. We have already been entitled to a generous gameplay video or to a trailer dedicated to Nightwing recently. This week, a new developer interview shed some never-before-seen details about the game, including the expanse of Gotham City.
Gotham Knights promises a vast playground
The Game Informer media was able to interview Geoff Ellenor and Fleur Marty, two Gotham Knights development executives. In this interview, we learn that the game map will be even bigger than in Batman Arkham games. Knowing that that of Arkham Knight, released in 2015, was already five times larger than the previous opus, Arkham City.
It’s rather big. I haven’t compared the maps, but our Gotham is vast. I tend to spend a lot of my Zoom calls on the Batcyle riding around Gotham. It’s one of the fastest and most enjoyable ways to get around the city. It feels like a huge place. – Geoff Ellenor, Game Director of Gotham Knights.
It’s definitely the biggest version of Gotham that’s ever been depicted in a video game. The most important thing for us is its density and verticality. There are many levels. The Batcycle is the means of transport for long distances. – Fleur Marty, Executive Producer of Gotham Knights
We interviewed the executive producer of Gotham Knights and the game’s director to learn more about alternate suits, the Batcycle, mission structure, cooperative play, and much more. Read here: https://t.co/IzIoTPP55b pic.twitter.com/2gUVY6kgiU

It is therefore a Gotham City that is both very dense and vertical that we can discover by playing as Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood or Robin. To facilitate long journeys, our quartet of superheroes will have a very useful vehicle at their disposal: the Batcycle, a motorcycle that will be customizable (noise, colors…). And for the more lazy, there will also be a fast travel system. let’s remember that Gotham Knights will be fully playable alone and in online co-op.
