As part of this years DC Fandome, a new installment in the Batman series, a Gotham Knights game has finally been announced in a co-op style game with Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin and Red Hood.
For months now, Warner Brothers Montreal has been teasing fans with tiny tidbits of information about the next Batman game.
In a stunning and action-packed trailer, Gotham Knights has been shown to the public for the first time.
From the trailer, the story appears to pick up immediately after the conclusion of Batman: Arkham Knight.
In a world without Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin and Red Hood team up as a heroic band of vigilantes in order to keep Gotham safe.
The action looks just as good as what we have come to expect in an Arkham series game and in some cases even better.
Not much is known about the story as of yet, but The Court of Owls is confirmed as making an appearance.
This isn’t unexpected, however, as WB Montreal have been sending some cryptic, and not so cryptic clues about the Court being in the next game.
However, the game’s developers have also confirmed that “the mystery in Gotham Knights is way bigger than just The Court of Owls“.
In an epic piece of gameplay, Mr. Freeze is shown to be one of the probably many villains in the game.
It appears that Barbara Gordon has regained her ability to walk and is no longer Oracle, rather she is Batgirl once more.
Jason Todd appears to be reprising his role as Red Hood after his failed attempt to take over Gotham as the Arkham Knight.
Dick Grayson as Nightwing also makes a return from Bludhaven to help out while Tim Drake continues on as the current Robin.

Taking a grand departure from the traditional style of the original Arkham games, it is confirmed that Gotham Knights is a co-op based game.
Whether the game is playable solo is unknown and the developers are still being a little tight-lipped about the details despite showing off the game.
The Gotham Knights release date is set for 2021 however it is unknown if it will be next-gen only.
