the next game of Warner Brothers Games Montreal, Gotham Knights is one of the biggest games to be released later this year, but there’s still a lot we don’t know. In a new interview with Game Informer, executive producer Fleur Marty and game director Geoff Ellenor spoke more about this.
They talked about Gotham City in terms of size. It was said that compared to the series Arkham of Rocksteady, Ellenor said:
“It’s pretty big. I haven’t put one map on top of the other, but our Gotham is a big place. I tend to spend a lot of my Zoom calls on the Batcycle driving around Gotham. It is one of the fastest and coolest ways to get around the city. It feels like a big place.”
“For sure it is the biggest version of Gotham that has been represented in video games. The most important thing for us is its density and verticality. It has many layers. The Batcycle is the long-range mode of transportation.”
One new detail is regarding the Batcycle, Ellenor confirmed that its colors and sound can be customized for “self-expression”. However, he cannot be upgraded and most of his abilities are hero-based, such as jumping and attacking an enemy. As for how the colors work, Marty said that by exploring the world, “you’re getting colors for both the suits and the bike.” Ellenor added: “We went with the same colorway philosophy for the Batcycle and the suits. We think people might want to combine his suit with the Batcycle. We give you a lot of options in that sense.”
Gotham Knights It’s due out on October 25 for Xbox Series X/S, PS5, and PC with the Xbox One and PS4 versions cancelled.
