Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer WB Games Montreal have released the launch trailer for Gotham Knights ahead of its release later this month.

View the launch trailer below:

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.

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.

Gotham Knights will launch for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store for October 21.

Another useless trailer without gameplay...

In one titled ‘official gameplay trailer’ no less.

It's somewhat impressive that 2022 PS5 game looks worse graphically than 2015 PS4 game (Arkham Knight)

It isn't the most impressive looking game graphically. But the lightning, particle effects where not really possible on PS4.

The same as Arkham Origins, good but never better than Rockysteady Arkham was.

The bad thing about Arkham Knight is that it had aliasing artifacts and pixel shimmer galore, and they have yet to release a PS5/Xbox Series update for it that implements a good anti-aliasing solution to fix that problem. So while some aspects of Arkham Knights graphics are definitely better, if you are averse to aliasing and pixel shimmer like I am, Gotham Knights may look overall better to you.

I wouldn’t count on a 9th Gen update to Arkham Knight. That game came pretty early in the 8th Gen cycle, and its only really games from the last few years (with a few exceptions like the Witcher 3) that are getting 9th Gen updates.

I'd settle for a 9th gen remaster that you have to pay for. The game currently looks pretty bad even on Series X back compat because it never got an Xbox One X update so it is still 900p, which coupled with the lack of anti-aliasing ruins the look of the game. Because rain is pretty much constantly falling in the outdoor parts of the game, the pixel shimmer caused by the falling rain drops is incredibly distracting. Even the indoor areas look rough due to the lack of anti-aliasing.

I’d even say that is unlikely as the game doesn’t have much enduring popularity, seen as the weakest of the trilogy. It would only be likely to get one as part of a remaster compilation with the rest of the Arkham series, but that was already covered by the Return to Arkham release so seems unlikely now.

Very good trailer, even though no gameplay was show. Hope I like the final product as well.

I looks impressive and glad the studio are able to get it out on time. I'm on the fence as while this is what I want from superhero games (not live service rubbish) I saw a trailer of the combat once and it seemed stuttered and not as free flowing as I'd hope. But will def pick it up on sale.
