Oh Holy, Batman! Gotham just got ten times better
Diversity wins! The most dangerous fantasy city in existence is a totalitarian city.
On the eve of its release, new details appear about the open world map of Gotham Knightswhich takes players to the corners of the city that they have never seen before.
One such corner is the new West End neighborhood, a rainbow-filled cityscape with more than a few indications that it might just be for the community.
The West End welcome sign has a rainbow and the text, “Welcome to the West End, where everyone matters.”
The neighborhood has a good amount of other pointers, which are very nice rainbow crossing.
The event features an odd piece of art that plays right into one of the game’s challenges. Each neighborhood has a mural that the player has to track down, and the West End murals are especially colorful.
The mural, titled Born This Way, is full of love, doves, and the breaking of chains. The flavor text of the piece reads: “Pride Gotham was commissioned three years ago.”
This also confirms that Gotham has citywide pride celebrations, which is kind of murderous. Residents may have hosted a #NoBatsAtPride protest at some point, but that’s between West End citizens and Bruce Wayne.
We recently reported the sad news of making this game Legendary Nightwing Butt Smaller, so the neighborhood and its design is a step in mending our broken hearts.
