Gotham Knights Robin Trailer Dives Into His Stealth-Focused Combat Style

WB Games Montréal has released a new gameplay trailer for Gotham Knights. The new trailer focuses on Tim Drake, aka the third Robin, the youngest of Batman’s proteges in the game.

“It’s hard to imagine a Robin without a Batman but I guess that’s up to me to figure that out,” Tim monologues in the trailer. It’s an interesting narrative development for the character given Tim’s background–following the death of the second Robin, Jason Todd, Tim sought out Bruce Wayne under the belief that Batman needs a Robin. Gotham Knights aims to explore whether Robin needs a Batman.

As seen in the trailer, Tim relies on his traditional collapsible quarterstaff in combat. However, his mind is his greatest weapon, as illustrated by his stealth-driven abilities that make him especially effective at psychological warfare and thinking through a problem.

This stands in contrast to what we saw in the Nightwing and Red Hood gameplay trailer, which showcased that Dick Grayson’s history as an acrobat lends itself to flashy hit-and-run skills and Jason Todd’s reliance on his physical size and firearms results in a slow fighter who can deal big damage from both short and long-range.

Gotham Knights is scheduled to launch for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC on October 25.
