The new Batman game finally has an official release date

Unlike a lot of other upcoming big games, it thankfully hasn't been pushed back to 2023!

Following the massive successes of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, we haven't been able to play within the world of that version of Gotham since 2015's Batman: Arkham Knight, all of which were developed by Rocksteady Studios.

In between there, we did get Batman: Arkham Origins, and the makers of that game - WB Montreal - are developing the new game, Gotham Knights.

However, while Arkham Knight did end with the "death" of Bruce Wayne/Batman, and the plot of Gotham Knights involves four of Batman's proteges attempting to fight the rise in the crime in the newly Batman-less Gotham, Gotham Knight and those Arkham games are unrelated, story-wise.

To complicate matters further, Rocksteady are currently working on their own DC game - titled Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League - which actually is set within that same version of Gotham from the Arkham games, though that game currently has no set release date.

On the plus side, WB Montreal has just released the official date that all of us DC lovers can play their new Gotham-set game.

Gotham Knights will allow players to control Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Red Hood as they take on the legendary Court Of Owls, a secret society that has been controlling Gotham from behind the scenes for centuries.

The game can be played solo, but also allows for a two-player mode where someone can drop in to your game and control one of the fellow heroes from the roster and play for as long or as little as they like, before dropping out and allow the in-game A.I. to take that character over again.

Gotham Knights will launch on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, Xbox One and PC from Tuesday, 25 October.
