This weekend, Gotham Knights’ latest trailer was unveiled at DC FanDome. This trailer is purely a story and focuses on the Court of Owls, who appear to be the main villains. The Penguin gives clues about the spooky conspiracy, and then the Penguin shows us the four Bat-family members we’ll be playing in Gotham Knights. Robin, Nightwing, Batgirl and Robin all fall into their clutches.

The Court of Owls, wealthy elites dressed in Venetian masks that resemble owls, were introduced in a 2011 comic book story. The trailer shows that they are not only an Eyes Wide Shut club of gazillionaires but also have well-armed assassins (called Talons by the comics).

Gotham Knights are being developed by WB Games Montreal–responsible for Arkham Origins and bits of Arkham Knight–and though the plot kind of resembles where you’d expect the Arkham series to go after Arkham Knight, it’s not set in the same version of the DC universe. This is a different continuity. Gotham Knights will be out in 2022. A Steam page was recently created.
