Gotham Knights will have Batman Beyond inspired skins as DLC

Gotham Knights is already on track to be one of the biggest games of 2022, and for Batman fans, thanks to a few, it just got that little bit more exciting Batman beyond skins. Batman beyond was an animated sequel series too Batman: The Animated Series. Launching in 1999, the show was a completely original idea, not inspired by comics, movies, or any other previous versions of Batman. After Bruce Wayne grows too old to properly fight crime, a young man named Terry McGinnis rises to power to take the mantle in a far-future version of Gotham. The show was a huge hit and made a massive impression on fans, but was largely relegated to the small screen by the TV series and not games or big Hollywood movies.

Warner Bros. announced that some will be included Batman beyond-inspired skins for all 4 playable characters in Gotham Knights and… some of them are a bit ugly, but some of them are really cool too. Red Hoods is particularly fitting for the character, but Robins is actually terrifying and maybe even overdesigned. Nonetheless, it’s a cool optional outfit set for players to choose from if they so choose. The skins will be available in the $89.99 Deluxe Edition Gotham Knight, so unfortunately it won’t be cheap. It wouldn’t be surprising if Warner Bros. ultimately decides to release them for everyone at a cheaper price, but for now the only known way to get them is through this version or the significantly more expensive Collector’s Edition.

At the moment, some fans already seem to be quite skeptical about the game. During the last gameplay demo of Gotham Knightsit was announced that the Red Hood will use magic rather than lethal bullets. Needless to say, this didn’t sit well with the character’s fans, with many taking to Twitter to express their frustration at the decision. At the moment there’s no telling how the game will pan out, but it looks like an interesting take on the Batman mythos.

Gotham Knights will be released on October 25, 2022 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC. The Xbox One and PS4 versions were dropped earlier this week.
