Batman is dead in this world, stars like Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin will appear in this game. This is a huge change from Arkham Games, but it is not the only difference when fans give to the game. had a chance to speak Gotham nights Creative director Patrick Redding is revealing everything about the game, and he explained how the game will address one of the more critical aspects of Arkham Games, and that it is a world without them.

First Redding described the spirit of the world, which aims to convey the specific history of the city. “So there were just … I want to say that there are two big things that make it go away,” Redding said. “One is a court of owls itself and a focus on Gotham City that has 350 years of history, plus more attention and emphasis on mystery and uncovering the mystery. We knew we wanted a Gotham City Were that reflect that history. Why these are the five distinct boroughs and the different neighborhoods within those boroughs that are specialized in architecture. The historical influence and sense of influence of the dominant families in Gotham was really in the architecture of the buildings and the foundations of the buildings Directly embedded. And also the base of the city. ”

The second part of that equation is the people who live in the city, and unlike the one that has come before, the city survives every night, acting as a big component to get you excited about going back to the city every night. Will feel

“Then the other part of it we know we wanted it to be a real ecosystem,” Redding said. “We wanted a city that you would go back to night after night. It’s not really just a bad, intense evening, but it’s many, many, many nights that patrol and crime as a driver for your development. Fight, like a crucible to transform yourself into your ultimate knighthood version, and so it also helps to create a rhythm to the game because you are always fighting crime at night, and you Always come back to the belfry during the day, and you need to create a lot more variety and lots of surprises in what you are doing at night. ”

“So that means citizens have residents in the city who are trying to survive and try to survive and try to make sure they can go to work the next morning,” Redding he said. “It means a hostile police force, trying to protect those civilians, but it is in very heavy hands, not necessarily in a very kind way. Then you have all the criminal factions, including Villains are also involved. The opportunities given by having no Batman around, right? And so the ecosystem is what we’re leaving the player and asking them to navigate and throw in. It’s a pressure. Makes cookers that continue to serve surprises, continue to serve. Challenges and new types of enemies and new types of crime and new types of situations as you engage with night after night. ”
