Warner Bros Games has released a new trailer for Gotham Knights.
The new clip, which premiered during the DC Fandome event, shows the Penguin talking to Nightwing about the mysterious Court of Owls.
The game is being developed by WB Games Montreal, the studio behind 2013’s Batman Arkham Origins, and is playable either in solo or two-player co-op.
It sees players controlling one of four superhero characters – Nightwing, Robin, Red Hood, and Batgirl – following the death of Bruce Wayne.
Gameplay takes place in a “dynamic and interactive” open-world Gotham City where players take on villains such as Mr. Freeze. They’ll use a variety of abilities, weapons, and unique combat moves to neutralize their foes, Warner said.
Seven minutes of actual gameplay footage from the game was shown at last year’s DC Fandome.
Although it was initially planned for release this year, in March it was confirmed that it would be delayed until 2022.
In a statement published on social media at the time, Warner Bros said it was “giving the game more time to deliver the best possible experience for players”.
“Thank you to our amazing fans for your tremendous support of Gotham Knights,” Warner’s statement continued. “We look forward to showcasing more of the game in the coming months.”
Development is being led by creative director Patrick Redding, who previously directed Splinter Cell titles Conviction and Blacklist.
