In Gotham Knights, you get to live out an adventure as members of the bat family and as it can be a co-op experience, you may be wondering if the game also features crossplay support. Here’s what we know. 

Gotham Knights mixes up the Batman formula by having players step into the shoes of other members of the Bat-family, namely Batgirl, Nightwing, Red Hood, and Robin. You can play as and switch between all four heroes throughout the game, and the campaign can even be experienced entirely co-op. 

If you’re hoping to join a friend who may be playing on a different platform than you however, it’s important to check whether Gotham Knights has crossplay support or not. So, we’ve got the answer for you in this handy guide.

Does Gotham Knights have crossplay?

Yes, Gotham Knights does have crossplay however it’s currently only available between Xbox and PC.

While the game didn’t initially launch with the feature, it was patched into the game during an update on September 27, 2023, meaning that players on Xbox Series S/X, and PC can join up together. Unfortunately, for PlayStation fans, the feature isn’t currently available for PS5 and there’s been no indication that it will be added anytime soon.

It’ll take all four of the Knights to cleanse Gotham of its criminal undercurrents.

How does co-op work in Gotham Knights?

As discussed in the FAQ section of the game’s website, players can team up with one other player to live out their crime-fighting duo fantasy in Gotham Knights. Co-op is only available online, however, which means couch co-op isn’t supported for the game. 

For console players, this means you’ll need to have a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Game Pass membership to play with friends. 

On November 29, 2022, Gotham Knights released a multiplayer, co-op add-on called “Heroic Assault” that players could download at no additional cost. In this mode, you can team up with four players, allowing you the chance to witness a full roster squad up.
