No, Gotham Knights Hasn’t Added 4-Player Co-op


The PlayStation Store recently suggested that Gotham Knights had transitioned from a maximum of 2-player to 4-player co-op, but this was seemingly a mistake.

Last week, users on Reddit noticed that a PS Store listing mentions that the game would support up to 4 players online. However, that PS Store listing has quietly been changed to reflect that the game actually “supports up to 2 online players”.

In addition, a new gameplay trailer shows off that the game continues to include only two of the four playable characters at any one time, and mentions that, “while you can play the whole game solo, you can also protect Gotham in co-op with a friend.” The trailer makes no mention of other players, or even AI companions that take your crew of Knights to beyond 2 characters.

Developer WB Montreal has previously told IGN why it opted for a maximum of 2-player co-op, saying, “the more you try to lean into [4-player co-op], the more you end up having to create environments that only really work for that.” It seems it’s sticking with that philosophy.

One element that has changed is where Gotham Knights will arrive – while it’s still coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, the PS4 and Xbox One versions have been cancelled. After a delay, the game will arrive on October 25.
