At the very beginning of Gotham Knights you have to choose a character while Nightwing, Red Hood, Robin, and Batgirl have a talk about what to do next. This guide on How To Change Character In Gotham Knights explains how you can change your character after making your initial choice because, at first, it’s not too clear.
When you select the character at the start of the game, this is the only time you will ever select a character via this method. The team talk about sending one off to the construction site and the other to the university. Doesn’t matter who you choose, you will be tasked with visiting the latter. Once you are there, there’s a simple mission to complete that behaves very much like a tutorial.
How To Change Character In Gotham Knights
You will need to follow the main story for a couple of missions. Once you start patrolling Gotham City you will unlock the Belfry, the new base, your center of operations. When this is first unlocked it’s barebones, most of the tech is missing, not everything works. Do another mission and Alfred will say that he has managed to restore most of the Belfry’s technology. You will now see, on the left side of the room, a suit for each of the different characters.
Simply interact with one of those suits to become that character. You can only switch at the Belfry. You cannot switch during missions or whilst out on patrol.
