In Gotham Knights, players will take on the role of four different protagonists, namely Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl and Red Hood, with the ability to switch between them at any time. For this reason the narration and the cutscenes will adapt to the controlled character and consequently to see all the contents of the story it will not be enough to complete the game once.
This at least according to the words of game director Geoff Ellenor and cinematic director Wilson Mui, who in an interview with PLAY magazine explained that each character will have a unique perspective of the events of Gotham Knights.
“You won’t see all of the story content in a single game,” Ellenor said. “There is so much content that is unique to the hero perspective you are using.”
“Structurally, we’re going to have very similar scenes that fit into each character’s story flow, but each of them has their own version of those scenes,” added Mui.
“If you play Batgirl you will get the Batgirl version, but if you play Robin you will get Robin’s version of that same scene. Some of these scenes are very similar to each other, but they will have small differences.”
We are not therefore talking about four completely different stories, but it is still an interesting narrative device that could prove to be a valid incentive to replay Gotham Knights from scratch after seeing the credits.
Before leaving, we remind you that Gotham Knights will be available starting October 25 for PS5, Xbox Series X | S and PC.
