Gotham Knights bundles exclusive in-game items with prequel comics

Gotham Knights is set after Batman’s death, and if you’re curious about the events leading up to the downfall of the caped crusader, you’re in luck. DC has unveiled a six-issue limited comic series Batman: Gotham Knights – Gilded Citywhich will serve as a prequel to the upcoming game. Gilded City The first issue will be released on October 25th – the same day that Gotham Knights is released – while the remaining five will be released monthly for the next five months.

Unlike the game, Batman will be present – albeit for a short time Gilded City. The limited series will follow the Dark Knight as he investigates a virus rampant throughout Gotham, turning those infected into “rabid yellow-iris maniacs” susceptible to all manner of violent crimes. DC also confirmed that the series would look into Gotham’s past, with the Bat-Family meeting one of the city’s oldest masked vigilantes known as Runaway.

Picking up the comic also earns you in-game loot for Gotham Knights. DC stated that each issue would include a code that could be redeemed for in-game items, with the debut issue including the BOSO22 Batcycle Skin, which looks like a sleek white/grey version of the Batcycle. It’s unknown what items the remaining five issues will contain, but DC has revealed that those who buy all six issues will also receive “a special seventh item.”

Gotham Knights is scheduled for release on October 25th. Earlier this year, WB Games announced that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game had been discontinued, meaning the game will only come out on current-gen consoles and PC. While the game seems to borrow quite a bit from the Arkham series, it differs in a number of ways, both in the inclusion of co-op gameplay and in the fact that Batman isn’t a playable character.
