Gotham Knights Gets Massive Heroic Assault Update, Patch Notes Revealed

WB Games Montreal has today released a massive new update for Gotham Knights across PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC platforms. Since first launching at the end of October, the latest Batman title from WB Games has received a handful of updates that have fixed various bugs and other problems. And while patches of this ilk will likely continue to roll out over time, today's new update for Gotham Knights has added an all-new game mode. 

As of today, Heroic Assault has finally come to Gotham Knights as part of this free update. Essentially, Heroic Assault is an added game mode that allows four players to team up via co-op to take on waves of enemies. This mode doesn't only add new gear and items to Gotham Knights, but it also incorporates an iconic DC villain

While this is the most notable new feature of this Gotham Knights update, it's not the only thing that has been added. WB Games Montreal has also made a vast number of balance changes to the title to go along with numerous other tweaks. Lastly, a Showdown mode has also been brought to Gotham Knights and will allow players to take on new "supercharged versions" of many of the game's villains.
