Still waiting for this October 25, Gotham Knights continues to distill new information. Today, a cult comic book supervillain is in the spotlight.
Batman is dead, but his sworn enemies continue to plague Gotham. The Court of Owls will be at the heart of the game’s plot centered on the Bat-Fam, but a few emblematic characters will give the Black Knight’s proteges a hard time. This will be the case with Mr Freeze, whose version of Gotham Knights which is presented in more detail.
A glimpse of Mr Freeze in Gotham Knights
Gotham’s coldest villain unfolds. Mr Freeze will come to put spokes in the wheels of the emblematic quartet of the Bat-Family. In this new adaptation, the cryogenics expert will join forces with the Regulators. A brand new gang that traffics in organs and steals high-tech devices to achieve its ends. If Victor Fries does not share the same ideologies of this group of mercenaries, he will sometimes ally with them.
IGNwho got his hands on this exclusive information, explains that the factions of Gotham Knights act a little differently than what we are used to. They are listed here by affiliation based on their crime preferences. It will therefore be possible to come across these Regulators doing their usual heists, but not only… Sometimes Mr. Freeze will engage this gang during certain parts of the scenario. The henchmen will then be able to inflict ice elemental attacks. In terms of design, this will result in armor that’s state-of-the-art, but still grounded in reality just like Freeze.
Freeze’s story is iconic. We don’t want to deviate from it, but we have raised the technological level a bit. We want to bring our own flavor to its design and be true to IP. But at the same time, we want to bring something new to the table. That’s kind of our philosophy for a lot of characters in the game, both playable ones and like Freeze.
