The Batman of recent movies has mostly been a solitary figure, but fans of DC comics have a different image. In the source material, the Dark Knight is just as often portrayed as the head of his own family of bats. This is true in gotham knightsavailable now for next-gen consoles and PCs, in which you can take control of four members of that family: Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin.

And really, what kind of family would it be if you couldn’t spend time together?

Does Gotham Knights have multiplayer?

Of course that means gotham knights features multiplayer, a first for this current lineage of modern Batman games. You can tackle the entire game in co-op, whether you want to go out on patrol and stop random crimes, or play each story mission in succession.

gotham knights It features drop-in/drop-out co-op mode, so you can switch from solo to multiplayer and vice versa at will, with no consequences.

How many people can play Gotham Knights multiplayer?

Please note that although there are four playable characters, co-op is limited to two players at a time. That said, they are free to explore the entire open world together, with no limits on how far they can go from each other, which is extremely cool.

Does Gotham Knights support crossplay?

Nope.

How does Gotham Knights multiplayer start?

There are two ways to start playing co-op if you don’t care who you pair up with. You can search for someone else’s game to join, or set up your own session in online mode and invite others to join you, either passively or actively.

To enter the world of a stranger, simply select the “multiplayer” option from the menu and let the “quick match” feature do its thing. (Ignore the “host heroic attack” option, as that mode isn’t in the game yet.)

If you prefer to let others join you, you’ll have to head to a different menu for some reason. Press left on your controller’s d-pad, then select the top radial option for “privacy.” Within that menu there are four options: public, friends of friends, friends only, and invited players. What you select determines who can join you; if you want to let your friends visit you without receiving an invitation, select “friends” or “friends of friends”. If you want to allow anyone to join, select “public”. If you want to play alone, select “invited players” and no one will be able to join you until you send them an invite.

You can also find equivalent options in the “social” section of the main menu, along with information about your current group, recent players, and more.

How does Gotham Knights multiplayer work?

When you get to someone else’s game or vice versa, the world adjusts to accommodate a larger number of players. Mainly, enemies become more difficult to take down. If there is a level disparity, the higher player’s stats will also sync with the lower player’s level.

The trade-off is worth it, as not only do you get an extra fighter on your side – it’s not apparent at first – but as you level up your characters, you can unlock special moves that help during multiplayer. Depending on the characters you play, that can include buffs, healing abilities, and combo moves that require both players to execute.

Fortunately, that scale also goes the other way; when someone leaves, the difficulty goes down again.

Unlike when playing single player, depleting your health bar doesn’t mean you’ll automatically fail whatever activity you’re doing in co-op. Your teammate has a chance to revive you, if he gets to you in time. Nightwing can even unlock the ability to revive a downed teammate from a distance.

Also, it’s notable that any progress you make while in someone else’s game persists when you return to playing in your own world.

That includes story progress; if you complete a quest in someone else’s game, you won’t have to do that quest again, even if you haven’t reached that point in the story yet. When you get there, the game will give you the option to skip that mission.
