Gotham Knights developer WB Games Montreal and Warner Bros. Games have announced that the upcoming DC-branded video game will receive a rather significant update just over a month after it initially releases on October 21st for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. More specifically, Gotham Knights is set to drop a free update featuring Heroic Assault, a new four-player, co-op mode.
Previously, it was known that Gotham Knights would feature two-player online co-op at launch. The new Heroic Assault co-op mode allows up to four players in online co-op, but it is a standalone mode separate from the game's campaign, unlike the two-player co-op. According to the FAQ on the Gotham Knights website, Heroic Assault features "a dedicated arena-like environment with specific objectives to complete and enemies to defeat on each floor." In total, it will have 30 floors. You can check out the official announcement for yourself embedded below:
