When you first start playing Gotham Knights, you’ll be asked which character you want to play as.
Four characters are on offer in Gotham Knights: Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood and Robin. With each offering a unique gameplay experience, your choice is pretty important. Robin, for example, is best suited for those who like stealth. Red Hood’s guns, on the other hand, make him great for fighting at range. But what if you choose a character and then find you don’t like them? Can you change your character in Gotham Knights?
The answer is: yes, you can. After initially choosing a character and playing through the opening section of Gotham Knights, you can change your character as often as you wish. Simply go the Belfry, and in the upper left-hand corner of the room, next to the Bat Computer, you’ll find the suits of each character on display. Approach the suit of the character you wish to play as and interact with it. You’ll then change to that character.
There are some things you need to know when it comes to changing between characters in Gotham Knights, however. While they all level up at the same time, for example, you’ll need to distribute any skill points acquired since you last played at them. Also, while you’ll likely have some gear for them in your inventory, you’ll need to go and and find new gear or blueprints in order to power them up even further.
Finally, Knighthood status, which allows your character to glide and make use of the Knighthood skill tree, is separate for each character. And so, you’ll have to complete 10 premeditated crimes with each character, and more, in order to glide with them all and obtain access to all of their skill trees.
