Quite a bit of information has already come out about Gotham Knights, but we don’t know exactly how big the city in the game is yet. Executive producer Fleur Marty and game director Geoff Ellenor have now lifted a corner of the veil on this.
Marty and Ellenor told Game Informer that Gotham City in Gotham Knights is the largest ever version of the well-known fictional city in a video game. This was not the most important, because that was that the city would have no empty open spaces and that there would be more verticality.
Ellenor: “It’s pretty big. I haven’t put one map over the other, but our Gotham is a big place.”
Marty: “For sure it’s 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 a lot of layers.”
A good means of transport to traverse Gotham City is the ‘Batcycle’. You cannot upgrade this mode of transport further along the way, but you can change the colors of the vehicle to match your costume.
Ellenor: “You are getting colorways both for the suits and for the bike.”
Marty: “We went with the same colorway philosophy for the Batcycle and suits. We thought people might want to match their suit with the Batcycle. We give you a bunch of options in that regard.”
Gotham Knights will be available on October 25 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
