Description

Gotham Knights for PC is an action-based role-playing game with four playable characters – see below for more on these – set in an alternative DC universe after the presumed death of the Batman.

About the Game


Gotham City thinks that the Batman is dead, but whether he is or not – you will have to play through to find out (or not) – he has left some final advice for his various companions. These friends must work together to keep Gotham’s criminals from celebrating the vanquishment of their archnemesis too overtly.

However, in the aftermath of Batman’s mysterious disappearance, the gang of friends discover the existence of a criminal cabal. It is known as The Court of Owls, and is said to be as old as Gotham City itself. The cabal possess – as all villain-worthy secret societies do – its own personalised league of assassins, known in this case as the Talons.

However, the Court of Owls are not the only antagonists in the game: fans of the DC Dark Knight will be delighted to recognise the likes of The Penguin, Mr Freeze and many more, all operating alongside the bad actors of the Court of Owls.

You will play across five district boroughs of Gotham City, which is a fully open world, allowing you to explore as far and wide as you like. It doesn’t matter which playing character you choose, they all level up as you do, so you can introduce a new-to-you character during harder levels without losing any of your hard-earned skills.

The Nitty Gritty


The game is designed for predominantly solo play, but a buddy can join in and help you out as a drop-in drop-out facility second player. The second player can rage-quit for half-an-hour and then come back without having too much of an effect on the main player’s game, which is useful for those with volatile friends.

As you play through the levels and improve your stats, so do your enemies, so you don’t ever really have time to get bored with one level or another – the stakes rise along with your powers and abilities.

The good guys’ base of operations is the belfry, because Bruce, for reasons that may or may not become clear as you play, has destroyed the Batcave. The Belfry is the game’s hub as well as the character’s daytime refuge, where you can change characters, update customisations, perform housekeeping tasks on the game, and generally get ready for the next chapter of play.

The Belfry houses the BatComputer which helps to log your tasks, research and aids with other odds and ends of gameplay in a seamless and immersive manner. Ideally, the daylight lasts as long as you need it to, so you can spend as long as you like in the Belfry: as soon as you leave the belfry, night-time arrives and adventure beckons once more.

Batman’s unique vehicles survived the BatCave destruction and are available to the gang – the Batcycle among them. Also surviving was Alfred Pennyworth, the butler, and he lends the protagonist a hand, with immersive and interesting cut-scenes. A final friend to the gang is Renee Montoya, a (seemingly rare) good cop.

Who’s Who in the Belfry?


All the following playable characters each have their own unique skills and skill trees, so choosing your character is not merely cosmetic as each level requires unique skills in order to master it. Choose from:

  • Nightwing: Real name Dick Grayson, and the original Robin, as aficionados of the original comic series will recognise, this character is great at acrobatic manoeuvres and is skilled with dual escrima sticks

  • Batgirl: Real Name Barbara Gordon, and, of course, Commissioner Gordon’s daughter reprising her comic-book role as Batgirl. She excels at not one but several fighting styles and is excellent at coding, making her the Belfry’s resident computer expert

  • Robin: Newcomer Robin (the third person to hold the name) real name Tim Drake, this iteration of the beloved Boy Wonder can teleport using the Justice League’s satellite, and otherwise excels in stealth, fighting with his sturdy staff

  • Red Hood: Jason Todd is strong and proficient with various and varied weapons, and uses the name Red Hood – which might confuse purists of the comic book lineage: it was used as a name for a villain who became disfigured and transformed into the earliest version of The Joker, now one of the most beloved characters in Gotham, bad guy or not!

  • Gotham Knights for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    Looks hella good, going to buy it soon.

    Not sure if i’ll handle the game since PC dying, but if it doesnt i'll buy a new PC.

    Like the fact that you can play with alot of heros, and for what i’ve seen the story is great.
    • Incredible and well-crafted story;
    • Open-world, real-time co-op mode;
    • Open world full of activities.
    • FPS drops, especially when using the BatMobile
    • Visual and sound problems
    This Game is not even worth 10€. I think ist was designed as a cash grab and shows elements of a liveservice game. By buying this game you Support the absurdly lazy developers which you shouldnˋt do.
    • A lot of bugs
    • Fights are slow
    • Framerate is bad
    As someone who's special interest in DC and more specifically the BatFam i was so excited for this game. My favourite character of all time is Nightwing and i was worried that they are going to ruin his character to make him the 'golden child' and i am happy to report that his anger issues are acknowledged in this game!
    • The bonding cutscenes
    I may have given it a thumbs up but in reality it should be a thumbs... Middle? The game has serious issues, however the gameplay loop is enjoyable to me and I imagine it will be for many others. The optimization is this games biggest sin, and my god what a sin it is. Worst optimization I've seen in a game, full stop. It's so wildly inconsistent. Sometimes I'll have stable 60fps driving through the streets on my batcycle then on my way back through the exact same section it'll drop to 25. So be warned, no matter what your rig is you'll more likely than not have severe performance issues. Luckily when you're in story missions you're more often than not inside or in a closed off location, where performance is as perfect as it could be. Smooth 120 fps, all the time indoors!
    • Fun cast of characters
    • Beefy, impactful combat
    • Very very pretty game
    • Unacceptably bad optimization
    • Seriously, the optimization is garbage
    • It's literally the worst I've ever seen
    The graphics are okay, but the gameplay it self is a nightmare. I really expected a bit more but i'm glad i did wait the discount because this game really is not worth any money in my opinion. Very, very disappointed.
    • Voice acting: 8
    • Gameplay: 2
    • Story: 3
    • Combat system: 3
    It's an ok game, the story isn't the best but the gameplay is cool

    Gameplay: 9

    Graphics: 10

    story: 5

    Combat: 8

    It could be better, it was cool to go through the story with all the characters, not to choose one and play only with him, the Batman of 2015 is better than this one. but it's worth taking if you have nothing to play.
