Gotham Knights was in the Summer Game Fest with a new Nightwing trailer. That although it was somewhat short, it was possible to appreciate the different outfits that can be equipped, including an elegant and ninja-like outfit. Speaking to Game Informer, executive producer Fleur Marty and game director Geoff Ellenor revealed that these are different styles of outfits that can be created (along with gear) from blueprints.
Fleur Marty stated:
“Each of our gentlemen has 11 different suit styles. As Geoff mentioned, those are complete styles. Within a style, you can have customization with different pieces and different colors. Each suit style is basically a silhouette. Anytime you craft a suit, think of it as an instance of that silhouette that comes with stats and a specific color that you can then override by unlocking more colors as you go.”
As for its cooperative mode, players can invite friends and adjust different settings for matchmaking to let others in. Alternatively, solo play is available, but we won’t be able to do some features like cooperative takedowns. As Ellenor points out:
“We have cooperative takedowns designed to show the physicality of characters working together. There really is a lot of synergy in how one hero’s ability influences the fight against another. Nightwing is the strongest indicator of this; A lot of his skills have to do with having fans for his friends and protecting others.”
Both players can also choose the same hero if they wish, and can experience some more humorous moments as a result. “We are leaving it in the hands of the players. We know that some people will want to have different characters, but others won’t mind. I don’t want to spoil anything, but there is a fun moment in the game if you’re playing as two of the same character. We are giving you total freedom.” Marty revealed.
Gotham Knights launches October 25 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC.
