Warner Bros. Games and DC revealed a new story trailer for Gotham Knights, the upcoming open-world, third-person action RPG in development by Warner Bros. Games Montréal.
Debuted at DC FanDome, the video features the game’s main antagonist force. These are the fabled Court of Owls, a secret society made up of Gotham City’s wealthiest families.
The trailer also introduces Oswald Cobblepot aka The Penguin. Everyone knows him as the infamous DC Super-Villain who seemingly knows important details about this omnipresent silent predator and the threat it poses to Gotham and the new superteam – Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin.
Gotham Knights – The family come together to save the day
As part of DC FanDome, fans were also treated to a behind-the-scenes featurette for Gotham Knights, with commentary from Jim Lee (Comic Book Artist, Publisher & Chief Creative Officer at DC), Scott Snyder (Writer & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Greg Capullo (Comic Book Artist & Co-Creator of “The Court of Owls”), Patrick Redding (Gotham Knights Creative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal) and Ann Lemay (Gotham Knights Narrative Director, Warner Bros. Games Montréal), who all expand on the Courts of Owls origins, lore and inspiration in bringing this elusive enemy to the interactive world of Gotham Knights.
Gotham Knights will allow players to step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin. This is very exciting as we’ll get to see them rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. The game will be playable either solo or as a two-player, online cooperative experience. This will allow for an enjoyable team-building adventure for you and your friends. Whether you’re at home or separated from across the globe.
