Two major video games based on popular DC Comics franchises were announced over the weekend with one of them set for release on both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X while the other is expected to be a next gen title only.
Gotham Knights is a third-person action game set in a world where Batman has died. Players can choose to play as Batgirl, Robin, Red Hood, or Nightwing and take on missions to protect the city of Gotham either in solo play or with a friend in two-player local or online co-op matches.
Here’s its reveal trailer:
Gotham Knights is set for release on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X sometime in 2021. In addition to the above trailer, a special look at the title’s gameplay has also been released which you can watch below.
The long-rumored Suicide Squad video game, whose official name is Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, is a follow-up to the popular Arkham Batman video games. In it, gamers are tasked with taking down the seemingly mind controller Justice League members as either King Shark, Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, or Harley Quinn. Other members of the Suicide Squad from the comic books, TV shows, and movies are expected to be announced closer to the game’s 2022 release date.
Here’s the official trailer for Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League:
Similarly to Gotham Knights, Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League can be played either solo or with a friend in co-op multiplayer. The main difference is that Suicide Squad supports an additional two players in multiplayer, allowing up to four players to tackle missions and targets together. Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League is a purely next gen video game and is confirmed to launch on Microsoft’s Xbox Series X console.
