Gotham Knights is giving fans their best look at the Nightwing icon, as an image celebrating the holiday season reveals.
Developer Warner Bros. Games Montreal has unveiled the best preview to date of the Nightwing emblem in the highly anticipated Knights of Gotham.
The image, which was shared with Knights of Gotham‘The Twitter page, shows a gift wrapped in gift wrap emblazoned with the symbols of the four playable members of the Bat-Family: Nightwing, Red Hood, Barbara Gordon’s Batgirl and Tim Drake’s Robin. While festive in design, the photo reveals Dick Grayson’s new icon, who will debut in Knights of Gotham. The sleeker design is a far cry from the symbol sported on the character’s in-game costume, which is much more streamlined and basic in form. Perhaps most importantly, the head of the emblem is pointing upwards rather than to the left.
Beyond that, the image reveals no other detail. The icons from the rest of the Bat-Family are all very similar to their original designs that fans have grown used to over the years. The actual tweet doesn’t tease any new information, simply offering âSeason greetings from Gotham City!â
Knights of Gotham is an upcoming open-world action-adventure game starring the Bat-Family. After Batman’s shocking death, Nightwing and his vigilante squad must step up and take their city back from the bad guys, jumping at the chance to claim their right. Players will be able to take control of one of four superheroes and can be joined by a friend in two-player co-op.
Each of the Bat Family members are blessed with unique skills and abilities to ensure that their playstyles are all different. Tim Drake is able to teleport to the battlefield using a hacked Justice League satellite while Red Hood does justice from afar with his dual pistols. As for Nightwing, Dick Grayson leaps between his enemies with acrobatic flair while Barbara Gordon makes heavy use of his genius gadgets.
Beyond villains like The Penguin and Mister Freeze, Knights of Gotham will feature The Court of Owls as its primary antagonist. The story trailer, revealed during DC Fandome 2021, reveals how the sinister villain organization has grown for the game, presenting players with a plethora of new Talons to defeat. While the role of the Court in the overall narrative remains a mystery, Warner Bros. Games Montreal will likely release more information in the coming months.
Knights of Gotham will launch in 2022 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC.
