What if you want to make a game about Gotham City but can’t make it about Batman? Easy! You tap the bench press. Warner Bros. has revealed the opening chapter of Gotham Knightsits action game over DC heroes who are not the Caped Crusader.

Gotham Knights, first announced in 2020is being developed at WB Games Montreal, best known for the 2013 action game Batman: Arkham Origins. WB Games had previously shared a 13 minute gameplay clip featuring B-list DC anti-heroes Nightwing and Red Hood. (Gotham Knights plays the Jason Todd iteration.) The latest clip, which shows about 15 minutes of gameplay from the prologue chapter, focuses solely on Batgirl. Above IGNhere is the clip:

IGN notes that WB Games is keeping the exact details of the plot under wraps, but it’s clear that the four playable characters – Batgirl, Red Hood, Nightwing, and Robin – fall away from it the death of Batman. The opening mission focuses on Batgirl planning to infiltrate a facility and continue on the trail of a case Batman didn’t quite complete before his death.

Earlier recordings of Gotham Knights teased a game hard with collecting equipment and Navigating through “the greatest Version” by Gotham Cityencourage Worry it would be just another open world loot grind. But the basic gameplay shown today, which doesn’t explore these aspects of the game, actually looks pretty sick. Who knows: maybe this is another open-world game with a killer campaign bolstered by loads of side-quest fluff.

There’s a grappling hook (hell yeah). Batgirl keeps a few busy witcher-Inspect style, which means you press a button to automatically light up a path of footprints, showing you exactly where to go. Fighting cannon fodder looks both weighty and sprightly. As with about 90 percent of all gameplay previews, the clip ends with a fight against a mini-boss. With shield. And some obvious signs of sociopathy.

It’s all very richly rendered, although of course the arms race in graphical accuracy has quickly approached the point of diminishing returns. For those interested in behind-the-scenes development diaries, here’s a short clip showing the motion capture work that went into the game:

Gotham Knights had a rocky road to release. It was originally planned to launch across generations of consoles in 2021. Last March, WB Games pushed it back to 2022. Last May WB Games scrapped the last-gen versions. in the same month The developers have launched a backlash for including a character biography for Batgirl that relied heavily on tropes (it has since been rewritten). Gotham Knights Slated for release on October 25th for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC. Gotham Knight’s 15-minute gameplay showcases more than just a loot grind
