Gotham Knights is the latest instalment in the Batman: Arkham series of action-adventure games developed by Warner Bros. Games Montréal and published by DC Comics. The game takes place after the events of Batman: Arkham Knight, with Bruce Wayne having died at some point during his absence from Gotham City, leaving it to be taken over by various criminal gangs and their leaders.
Players take control of either Batgirl (Barbara Gordon), Nightwing (Dick Grayson), Red Hood (Jason Todd) or Robin (Tim Drake) as they attempt to clean up Gotham City while also uncovering secrets about Bruce’s past that have been hidden away for years.
Gotham Knights feature an open-world environment filled with a variety of missions, side quests and collectables that players can explore at their own pace. Combat has been redesigned from previous entries in the franchise. Instead of relying on counters like before, players must now use a combination of strikes and dodges against enemies using melee weapons or firearms depending on which character they are playing. Each character has its own unique combat style which adds more depth to gameplay overall.
Additionally, there are environmental objects scattered around levels such as street lamps or signs that can be used for special attacks when fighting large groups of opponents all at once – this gives fights much more intensity than before!
The story follows our four heroes as they investigate what happened to Bruce Wayne following his disappearance after defeating Scarecrow in Batman: Arkham Knight; however things quickly spiral out into something far greater than any one hero could handle alone – leading them down a path fulfilled with unexpected twists & turns along the way!
As you progress through the main storyline missions, you will slowly unravel clues left behind by both friends & foes alike until eventually discover who was responsible for orchestrating everything behind scenes. Only then will true justice prevail!
