A new trailer for the upcoming Batman-based video game, Gotham Knights has leaked ahead of the official DC FanDome release.
Last year, the new Batman-based video game, Gotham Knights was officially revealed after months of rumors. It had been known for some time that Batman: Arkham Origins developer Warner Bros. Montreal was working on some kind of Batman-based video game. Rumors had also leaked that the primary antagonist would be the Court of Owls. In the comics, the Court of Owls made its debut in 2011 in Scott Snyder’s run on Batman where they were revealed to be an organization that secretly ran Gotham from behind the scenes since its inception. The first trailer not only confirmed this to be the case but that Batman was also dead.
Little has been revealed of Gotham Knights since the first event and the new trailer was set to make its debut at the DC FanDome event. The new trailer, however, leaked early, showing the Court of Owls in action, the Bat-Family attempting to hunt and confront them, and that even Oswald Cobblepot is afraid to cross them.
You can see the leaked trailer for Gotham Knights below:
Here is the synopsis for Gotham Knights from Warner Bros. Montreal:
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.
The upcoming game is scheduled for a 2022 release and will be playable on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
