Media outlet IGN has recently shared a new gameplay video where Nightwing appears before the crazy Harley Quinn. This is the very first full boss fight preview that Warner Bros. Games has released recently. It shows how players will be able to fight against a big boss fight, which will probably feature some of the biggest Batman villains ever created by DC like Mr. Freeze, Harley Quinn, Clayface, and more.
In the video, Game Director Geoff Ellenor calls this fight Harley’s end of arc boss fight. This suggests this the last time player will be encountering Joker’s lover and accomplice before she finally gets locked up behind bars.
Just like in the Arkham series, players will be fighting against the boss first where they could get a few hits in, and then it will transition into either the boss gets a second wind or they will step out and let the goons have a go at the players. In this case, Harley gets beat up a bit and decides to leave the area so she could power up her sledgehammer into something more powerful while her goons take a shot at Nightwing.
After beating up all of the goons, Harley comes back with her sledgehammer but this time it has an electric coil around the metallic head. To top it all off, her goons join in the fun.
Surprisingly, in this boss fight, Harley is quite agile and also super strong. She can cartwheel easily while bringing the sledgehammer around and she can swing it freely. Nightwing is super quick as well with gymnastic skills and some tricks to keep Harley preoccupied or annoyed.
Gotham Knights officially launches on October 21, 2022 for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
