Owen S. Good is a longtime veteran of video games writing, well known for his coverage of sports and racing games.

Gotham Knights, the Batman universe action-adventure from WB Montreal, is now launching earlier than announced. Publisher Warner Bros. said Tuesday at Gamescom that it’s now on the way on Oct. 21.

That’s four (4) whole days before the previously declared launch date, which was itself delayed by about a year shortly after the game’s original announcement. Gotham Knights got a new trailer at Gamescom’s Opening Night Live on Tuesday, showcasing super-baddie Clayface along with playable heroes Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, and Red Hood.

Gotham Knights tasks the four Bat-Family siblings — ostensibly without Batman — against longtime the Court of Owls, a conspiracy of Gotham’s wealthiest and most powerful families, spanning generations. The game’s campaign will support cooperative multiplayer for two.

Mr. Freeze is one of the marquee villains in Gotham Knights, as well as Clayface, who features prominently in the Gamescom trailer. Harley Quinn also shows up when the game arrives on PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X on Oct. 21.
