Gotham’s Dark Knight has been the protector of this city infested with evil for as long as its citizens can remember. But who will save Gotham when the Bat is dead? That’s a question tackled by the upcoming game Gotham Knights, created by WB Games Montreal.
The RPG features four playable characters: Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood. The game’s official synopsis was released a few months ago, and a gameplay trailer was released weeks before its launch at the end of October 2022.
But now there’s a massive setback that WB Games has to deal with right before the launch.
According to GamesRadar, several plot points about the game’s storyline had leaked online due to a simple timing error. The plot points referred to here were included in a book titled Gotham Knights: The Official Collector’s Compendium.
Though it was an honest mistake, a group of fans received their book’s shipments right before the launch, and they took it upon themselves to share the story online.
These fans also leaked a trophy list along with the story spoilers, revealing a few more details about the story and the number of levels. WB Games Montreal is trying to control the situation by issuing warnings to the accounts responsible for the leaks and dissuading other fans from searching about the game online.
Even without the leaks, the game had created hype among gamers who’ll have the opportunity and freedom to choose their characters and experience the game through multiple viewpoints.
Besides that, the game also sports a unique twist to the story, with villains running rampant after Bruce and Gordon’s death and only the four knights to save Gotham in the Bat’s absence. Many villains have been teased, including Penguin, Harley Quinn, Court of Owls, and more.
The game is due to be launched on October 21, 2022, and despite the spoilers, fans remain excited for the game to drop in a few weeks.
