Xbox Series S isn’t holding next-gen back, reality is

Devs will always have to cater for the lowest common denominator, which the Series S isn’t. ^Stay tuned for Jim’s video op-ed on how good the Series S really is. There’s a pernicious rumour going around that the humble Xbox Series S, the cheapest next-gen console on the market, is somehow causing other, better machines to be compromised with unnecessary framerate caps. Quite how the rumour started is a little convoluted, but I’ve explained all in the accompanying video. And, look, here’s the thing: it’s a load of rubbish. If anything, if the Series S was responsible for reducing the…

Gotham Knights answers the question “Would Batman games be as good without Batman?” with: “No”

A circus of Robins can’t fill the Bat-boots. ^Stay tuned after the ads for our big review chat, featuring loads of lovely footage from every version of the game. Aside from its performance issues, which are annoying but potentially fixable and hardly a dealbreaker, Gotham Knights’ biggest sin is that it just doesn’t do anything particularly exciting. And for a game which boldly kills the Batman in the first two minutes, that’s pretty astonishing. It’s not all bad: there are some nice ideas dotted around. Occupying The Belfry between missions gives the game a nice overall pace, allowing you to…

Gotham Knights review: Four isn’t always better than one

It’s been many years in the making, but can Gotham Knights meet expectations? Not really. Gotham Knights is finally here, the latest in a nearly two-decades old legacy of third-person action titles that has allowed us to jump into Batman’s spandex attire to solve mysteries, beat up thugs, and face off against a legendary collection of dastardly villains. Now, however, Batman is dead. Gotham Knights instead puts us in control of four bat proteges as they try their best to fit all eight of their feet into Batman’s comically large shoes. The background for this attempt? A third-person action game…

Gotham Knights’ free arena-based four-player co-op experience launching in November

Also of note, consoles lack a performance mode and it only runs in 30 fps on those systems. WB Games Montreal shared a couple of interesting tidbits on Gotham Knights yesterday. The first was a November 29 launch date for the game’s arena-based experience Heroic Assault which sees up to four-players participating in co-op. Gotham Knights – Official Villains Trailer It seems four-player co-op will be limited to that mode, as the main game is only playable either solo or in two-player online co-op, as it does not feature local co-op. Also, Heroic Assault is a gameplay mode separate from…

Gotham Knights spoilers appear to be cropping up online after artbook releases early

Prospective Gotham Knights fans beware: spoilers have cropped up online, ahead of the game’s release later this month. Be careful if you spot anything about Gotham Knights online, as there’s a chance it could be a major plot spoiler. This has apparently come from an early release of the game’s artbook (thanks, Eurogamer), which is obviously unfortunate for those who might have already seen spoilers. This in turn has led to Gotham Knights’ executive producer Fleur Marty to express frustration at sharing spoilers. “I can’t begin to understand why would anyone spoil a story (whether it’s a game, a movie,…

Why 13 years later, Arkham Asylum is still the best Batman game

The worst day of my life was at EGX about 4 years ago. Nestled in the retro area of the exhibition hall in front of a row of black, plasticy LCD TVs sat a young boy of about 10 years old. Interested in what was passing for retro in this modern era, I hung around for a minute as the loading bar finished spinning and what I saw filled me with hollow, existential dread. Next to the Pac-Man cabinets and CRTs with Super Mario Bros and Sonic the Hedgehog flickering on their screens, the kid wasn’t playing Arkanoid, or Asteroid,…

Gotham Knights reveal new villains trailer, and brings release date forward by four days

Clayface and Harley Quinn are now amongst the roster of villains. Gotham Knights made an appearance at Gamescom Opening Night Live and delivered to us what is perhaps some of the most unusual news of the night. Initially anticipated to release on October 25, developer WB Games Montréal has made a slight change to the game’s release date. Nope, it’s not being delayed; in fact, it’s release is being brought forward by four days. Gotham Knights will now release on October 21, which is certainly good news for all those looking forward to the multiplayer DC game. Check out the…

Gotham Knights is coming out an entire four days earlier, for some reason

It’s not often that we get to report a game coming out earlier than planned rather than delaying the date, so it’s nice to be able to tell you that Gotham Knights has moved its release date up. It’s only by four days, though, to October 21st, which is sort of baffling. Maybe Warner Bros. are about to announce a new DC-verse TV show coming out on the Knights’ original release date of the 25th? Who knows. But along with this early-release sneak attack is a new trailer, giving us a closer look at the rogues gallery that the extended…

Gotham Knights trailer shows off Red Hood and his definitely non-lethal fighting style

We promise, he’s not killing anyone with those guns. Gotham Knights has steadily been showing us different members of the Bat family, with the latest trailer giving us a look at the rowdy Red Hood. Batman’s whole deal, typically anyway, is that he doesn’t kill anybody. That obviously has something to do with his own parents being killed, which he didn’t exactly respond to in the most healthy way, but you still, it’s a pretty hard rule. That rule doesn’t apply so much to Red Hood, aka Jason Todd, a former Robin, as you can see in the most recent…

Gotham Knights is getting a six issue prequel comic, and reading it will unlock in-game skins

Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and the Red Hood star in Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded City from October 25. If you want to know a little bit more about the state of a world where Bruce Wayne is (supposedly) dead, and its up to his wards to protect Gotham from the seedy underbelly of the crime world, you may want to make a note of Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded City – a prequel comic coming from Evan Narcisse (Gen: LOCK, Rise of the Black Panther), and ABEL (Harley Quinn). The comic series lays the foundations for the events of the…

Gotham Knights will reportedly no longer receive Russian-language version

The game’s Steam page no longer makes reference to the Russian language, and the game’s sub-site it currently down. According to a new report, the Russian version of Gotham Knights has been cancelled. This claim comes from The Happy Warrior (thanks, Eurogamer), which notes that the Russian-language version of the game has been cancelled due to Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. As pointed out by Eurogamer, the Russian sub-site for the game currently leads to a 404 error, with the page last confirmed live as of May 12 via The Steam page for the game also has no references…

Gotham Knights shows off Night Wing and Red Hood in latest gameplay trailer

I’m not really a superhero guy, but I’d say Batman is my favourite of the bunch. He’s gruff and edgy and wears a cape well. He’s also dead – in open-world action RPG Gotham Knights, at least. “Gah”, was my initial reaction, but that’s changed to “Oh well” having seen 13 minutes of new gameplay footage showing Night Wing and Red Hood stick it to some thugs. What about four-player co-op? Nope, sorry; it’s confirmed only to be two-player, as that’s what Batman would’ve wanted. Read more

Gotham Knights will have four player co-op for all Batman’s sidekicks

Superhero open-world action RPG Gotham Knights will be playable in four-player online co-op, according to a leaked PlayStation store listing. A screenshot of the game’s PlayStation store page was posted to the Gotham Knights subreddit over the weekend by keen-eyed user SuspiciousTension19, which shows that it will support “4 network players”. Eurogamer have confirmed that the listing is accurate, too. We don’t know yet whether this will also apply to PC players, of course, but it’s highly likely to be the same across all platforms.
