Gotham Knights Co-Op, How to Play with Friends?

The multiplayer component of Gotham Knights is not available from the get-go. Rather, it is an aspect of the game you will need to unlock during single-player. However, once it is unlocked, you will be able to play it freely and seamlessly with whomever you want. Provided you are on the same platform, as the game doesn’t support crossplay. So, how to enable Gotham Knights Multiplayer and play co-op with friends? Well, you will need to complete the tutorial missions and the following one – Gotham Knights Case 02. Only after completing it, the option to play co-op will unlock.

Now, when you have it unlocked, you can play it either with friends, or you can team up with a random person online. To invite a friend, do as follows:

  • Start the game.
  • Load your current save.
  • When inside the game, open the menu.
  • Head to Social and then Friends.
  • Find a person you want to invite and hold X(Xbox), Square (PlayStation), or V (PC) to invite that person.
  • If you are the one who wants to join, hold X/Square/V to join your friend’s game from your friend list.

If you want to play with another random player online, then head to Multiplayer from the Gotham Knights title screen. Now choose Quick Match. Select your preferred character and start searching the game. This will drop you to a random player’s game.

For now, Gotham Knights only supports two-player co-op. However, the Heroic Assault mode will be added in November, which is designed for 4-player co-op sessions. Unforutnely, Gotham Knights doesn’t support local multiplayer, and it doesn’t have a split-screen couch co-op mode.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
