Gotham Knights to get Hero Attack, a free four-player co-op, in November
While Knight of Gotham‘the campaign will only support single-player or two-player co-op, a new mode called Heroic Assault will launch for free on November 29, 2022, allowing up to four players to team up in Arena-based challenges.
WB Games Montréal announced the news about Twitter and more Gotham Knights FAQ page, said, “Gotham has thrown down a new gauntlet. Heroic Assault, a free 4-player co-op experience, is coming to #GothamKnights November 29, 2022.”
“Heroic Assault is an upcoming game mode separate from the main story campaign,” said the Gotham Knights FAQ. “Standalone mode supports up to four players in online co-op and provides a dedicated arena-like environment with specific objectives to complete and enemies to defeat on each floor (total). plus 30 floors).”
For those hoping this will also bring four-player co-op into the main story campaign, WB Games Montréal hasn’t said it’s planning to include four-player co-op in anything but Heroic Assault. Things can always change, but it’s not like the cards right now.
Gotham Knights will be released on October 21, 2022 and will allow players to experience a story in single-player or two-player co-op with Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, and Red Hood.
WB Games previously shared with IGN why did it choose to limit co-op to two players despite having four heroes, says, “Focusing more on the idea of two people’s immediate collaboration allows us to say, ‘Okay, we can build a world that works perfectly for both solo or pairing.”
In ours Gotham Knights Final Preview, We said it “wasn’t an easy game to demo and while I left less than impressed with many aspects of combat, I still found myself wanting to play more.”
