Batman: Gotham Knights Debuts its World Premiere Trailer, Teases Court of Owls

Batman: Gotham Knights finally made its debut in a worldwide premiere trailer that shows off both the story and action gameplay.

DC finally premiered the first trailer for the upcoming Batman: Gotham Knights title. The latest Batman title has been teased for quite some time, including earlier this week but now we’re getting a hard look at both the plot and gameplay.

The trailer reveals that Bruce Wayne, or Batman as we truly know him as, has been caught in an explosion and died. A special message for the Bat Family confirms this, as well as the destruction of the Bat Cave. He also instructs them that Gotham will need them more than ever to watch over it and its citizens.

After that we see Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin as they suit up and demonstrate their unique abilities and skills in combat. In the final moments we see more of the Court of Owls plotline that was previously teased and it looks fantastic. Check out the world premiere trailer below:

You can also check out this official gameplay walkthrough from IGN in which it demonstrates the co-op gameplay as Batgirl and Robin take on Mister Freeze. The combat and exploration look very impressive on its own and it seems to integrate RPG elements:

According to the official description: “Batman is dead. It is now up to the Batman Family — Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin — to protect Gotham City, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops, and fear to its criminals. You must evolve into the new Dark Knight and save Gotham from chaos.

“Your legacy begins now. Step into the Knight.”

Fortnite had an event just last year which replaced Tilted Town with Gotham City. Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 5 also made its debut back in 2017 and was praised by our Features Editor in his own review.
