Gotham KnightsWB Montreal’s upcoming DC superhero game will have the largest version of the Gotham City map in a video game yet, according to the developers.
Geoff Ellenor, Gotham Knightthe director said game informant that the game map will be a “big square”. It will be larger than the map seen in Batman: Arkham Knight. He also opened up about how he made his Zoom calls while riding the Batcycle around Gotham, describing the experience as “one of the fastest, most relaxing ways to get around the city.”
Executive producer Fleur Marty then added that it would be the greatest version of Gotham in any video game. “It’s definitely the greatest version of Gotham that’s been portrayed in video games,” Marty said. “The most important thing for us is its density and its verticality. It has many layers. The Batcycle is the long-distance mode of transport.
