Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer WB Games Montreal announced Gotham Knights has gone gold. This means principal development for the game is complete and what is left is to fix bugs that might be discovered.

Gotham Knights will launch for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on October 25.

Read details on the game below:

Gotham Knights is a brand-new open world, third-person action RPG featuring the Batman Family as players step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin, a new guard of trained DC Super Heroes who must rise up as the protectors of Gotham City in the wake of Batman’s death. An expansive, criminal underworld has swept through the streets of Gotham, and it is now up to these new heroes to protect the city, bring hope to its citizens, discipline to its cops and fear to its criminals. Players must save Gotham from descent into chaos and reinvent themselves into their own version of the Dark Knight.

Key Features:

  • Play as a New Guard of DC Super Heroes – Step into the roles of Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin and shape Gotham’s newest protector to create your own version of the Dark Knight.
  • Action-Packed, Original Story Set in DC’s Batman Universe – With the Belfry as their base of operations, this new era of heroes will solve mysteries that connect the darkest chapters in Gotham’s history—from its soaring towers to its underground criminal network. Embark on rich storylines, including face-offs against some of the most infamous DC Super-Villains, such as Mr. Freeze, who is set on engulfing Gotham City in ice.
  • Explore and Fight Crime in an Open-World Gotham City – Patrol the dark streets of five distinct boroughs in a dynamic, interactive Gotham using a variety of traversal abilities and heroic combat moves, as well as the iconic Batcycle. From street-level crimefighting to face-offs with iconic DC Super Villains, save the city from descent into chaos.
  • Unique Character Abilities and Customization – Each hero has unique abilities, gear, weapons and a customizable suit. Batgirl wields her melee tonfa; Nightwing uses his signature dual Escrima Sticks; Red Hood has trained to reach peak human strength; and Robin is expertly skilled with his collapsible quarter staff.
  • Team Up in Two-Player, Online Co-Op – Play Gotham Knights solo or team up with a friend and combine strengths to protect Gotham City in two-player, online co-op.

Back in the day, going Gold meant that the development was done and the game was ready to ship, and that included having taken care of the bugs.

Now it only means they are satisfied with sending it to print while they work out on day 1 patches.

Now it means basically nothing. Day one patches are gigantic for many games because when they went "gold" they weren't even close to finished.

I would say that the only real think we get from going gold is that the release date is as firm as one can expect.

I soured on the game quickly when I saw numbers popping up after you hit enemies, because I assumed it would be an Avengers style microtransaction fest. Surprisingly, there will apparently be no microtransactions, so maybe I should give it another look.

I think the problem with this one is similar, although to a lesser degree, to the issues with Metroid Federation Force. It has been quite a while since we've had a game in the Arkham Series, so, I don't think people are going to be that eager for a spin off at this time.

I'm interested in it, so I pray it is good.

I’ll be pleasantly surprised if it is. My expectations aren’t high though.
