WB Games Montreal, the studio behind the upcoming Batman game Gotham Knights, has confirmed the team has “entirely redesigned” the combat system to improve the co-op experience.
Gotham Knights is an open-world single-player and co-op action role-playing game starring playable Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin. The setup is the quartet must protect Gotham following the supposed death of Bruce Wayne.
“We have entirely redesigned the combat system in order for it to work well in co-op,” Fleur Marty, executive producer of Gotham Knights, told GamesRadar+. “Of course, we’re still a brawler, and some of the mechanics won’t feel totally alien for people who played and enjoyed the Arkham series, but it is in many ways very different.”
