Gotham Knights: Villains That Deserve Their Own Case File DLC
It’s safe to assume that by the time Gotham Knights’ credits roll, gamers will have encountered every enemy and monster in the game. While there are many other types of enemies in Gotham Knights, including the GCDP, the Court of Owls, the Mob, the Regulators, and the Freaks, there are only two true primary villains in the story mode: Jacob Kane and Talia al Ghul of the Court of Owls. It came as a pleasant surprise that the League of Shadows has its own faction gang, but its members are limited to assassins, rocketeers, and Man-Bats.
Harley Quinn, Mr. Freeze, and Clayface are the three additional Batman villains the player will face. Only in case file missions, which range in duration and boss battle satisfaction, may these criminals be pursued. Many players were let down by what they saw as a shortage of villains in Gotham Knights, and although it would be great if WB Games Montreal intended to add more after launch, they didn’t appear in the base game. If that’s the case, there are a lot of possible bad guys that might provide some fantastic opportunities for case file assignments in Gotham Knights.
Bane seems like he’d be tailor-made for the action-RPG style of play in Gotham Knights. Bane’s assaults are almost equivalent to those of any of the Gotham Knights’ large brute foes with chains of devastating strikes. It also makes sense for Bane, whose preferred method of combat is heavyweight grappling.
Harley Quinn may seem like an odd pick for a boss, but Gotham Knights is best suited for battles against bigger foes that the Bat Family can’t readily dispatch. From the standpoint of a boss battle, she already seems fundamentally lacklustre due to her lack of superpowers, martial arts ability, and devices shared by the Bat Family. Bane, on the other hand, is the game’s definitive bruiser and would have meshed well with the other big hitters serving as mini-bosses. Bane is the finest option for Gotham Knights’ strategy to create a straightforward case file with more of the same.
Poison Ivy’s environmental and elemental properties make her an ideal antagonist for Gotham Knights. Clayface’s mercury-like liquid can jump and sink through the streets of Gotham City, while Mr. Freeze’s Storm Engine can encase whole skyscrapers in ice. For example, Poison Ivy’s living plants may use huge, thorny plant stalks to chase after players as they flee on the Batcycle or wreathe whole structures. In addition, Poison Ivy could have a group of followers that are hypnotised by her pheromones and perform anything she commands.
To counter the poison elemental damage that these foes and Ivy herself may deliver, players may need to equip themselves with Legendary items. As a result, Ivy may be important to Gotham Knights, both for her visual impact and the dynamic impacts she brings to the game’s elemental mechanics.
