Unless you’ve been hiding out in the Fortress of Solitude, you’re probably aware there’s a new Batman video game coming out this fall. You’re probably also aware that Batman actually isn’t in the game.
Instead of the Dark Knight, players will get to choose between Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood, and Robin. How will the characters get along after the loss of their “father,” and will they be able to deal with the Court of Owls? With an even bigger city map than we’ve seen before, there will be a lot going on in Gotham Knights.
While we wait for the release of the game, a lot of information was given out at San Diego Comic-Con, where roundtable interviews were held with the game designers and voice actors.

It’ll be interesting to see how the gameplay and cinematics change depend on which character you play as. The fact that you can switch characters during the game makes it even more exciting to experiment and build up each character.
Who are you looking forward to playing as?
