Gotham Knights has lowkey been living in folks’ heads rent-free since it was announced in 2020. Set after Batman’s death (and not part of the multiple games that make up the Arkhamverse), Gotham Knights sees the Batman family—Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin—teaming up together to keep the troubled streets of Gotham City safe from the usual villain fuckery. Despite not being part of the Arkham saga, Knights clearly takes some cues from that series, with its crunchy combat and crime scene investigation sequences.


What makes this one different, however, is there are four characters to choose from instead of just the one. Each fighter is distinct from one another. Robin, for example, is acrobatic and can teleport short distances like Nightcrawler, while Red Hood is much slower and hits way harder than the others. There’s also online co-op play, letting you pair up with up to three friends or randoms to beat goon ass while drifting in various vehicles like the Batcycle. It was also previously revealed that Gotham Knights includes equippable gear with all kinds of stat bonuses and mod slots, which dampened enthusiasm among some fans earlier this year.
