Expected for 2022, “Gotham Knights”, developed by the Warner Bros. studio. Games Montreal, unveiled this weekend during the DC Fandome a new trailer with the main antagonist of the game, the legendary Court of the Owls. Pictures!
During the DC FanDome which took place in August 2020, Warner Bros Games Montreal had unveiled a trailer and gameplay video of the game Gotham Knights.
The studio to which we owe in particular Batman Arkham Origins returned to the universe of the Dark Knight with a title that gives pride of place to the heroes in the shadow of the Batman. We can thus control Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Red Hood (Jason Todd) and Robin (Tim Drake) and face the worst criminals of Gotham.
Initially expected for 2021, the game has seen its release postponed to 2022. This did not prevent it from unveiling a little more this weekend, during the event DC Fandome.
The video features the game’s primary antagonist, the legendary Court of the Owls, a secret society made up of Gotham City’s wealthiest families. The trailer also features Oswald Cobblepot (aka the Penguin), who seems to know important details about this silent predator and the threat he poses to Gotham and his new DC vigilante guard.
Fans were also able to watch a behind-the-scenes video of Gotham knights, with Jim Lee (comic artist, editor and Creative Chef at DC), Scott Snyder (screenwriter and co-creator of “La Cour des Hiboux”), Greg Capullo (comic artist and co-creator of “La Cour des Hiboux”), Patrick Redding (Creative Director of Gotham knights at Warner Bros. Games Montréal) and Ann Lemay (Director of Storytelling for Gotham knights), which explain the creative process of this Court of Owls, transposed into the interactive world of the game.
