Gotham Knights Starro Update Trailer Reveals New 2 Player Mission
As of today, DC fans can sink their teeth into the first installment Knights of Gotham DLC in the form of a free update that adds a four-player co-op mission to the game as a bonus feature. Unlike the story campaign, the new Heroic Attack mode allows players to control each of the main heroes of the title in a long battle that begins a mile below Gotham City. Now, in honor of the DLC release, the developers have released a new trailer that gives us a closer look at what the mission is about.
Yesterday, before the update went live, the developers shared new key art for Heroic Assault revealing Starro the Conqueror’s role in the mission. But the trailer confirms what many of us already suspected. As in The Suicide Squad (and his many previous comic book appearances), Starro uses a Facehugger-like spore as a means of mind control, rewarding anyone who frees him from his holding cell. Players will encounter several waves of these relentless victims across 30 different floors, including information on Knights of Gotham bosses like Man-Bat and the dread Gladiator Talon.
The trailer also reveals the second new mode coming with the update – Showdown, a 2-player co-op mission. This level pits gamers against a handful of them Knights of Gotham‘ the deadliest villains, including Mr. Freeze, Harley Quinn, and Clayface. The developers also promise “supercharged encounters” with each of these enemies. In other words, they might be a lot harder to beat than they were in the base game.
Knights of Gotham now available for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and Microsoft Windows.
