This page will detail how to switch characters once you start the game in Gotham Knights.
Whenever you first boot up the game, you will have to make a choice on which character to play. Each character has their own strengths and weaknesses, but none of the characters really has an edge over the others in terms of story. So, you are just picking a character depending on their playstyle and won’t have to miss anything in terms of the narrative. However, you aren’t stuck playing that character for the entire game, as you are able to change your playable character via the Belfry, your home base of operations.
How to Switch Characters in Gotham Knights
When you first arrive in the Belfry, there’s not much you can do, as everything is offline. There will be a tutorial mission, where you will be stuck playing your chosen character, on your first night in Gotham City. Once that tutorial mission is over, you will be back in the Belfry. It is at this time that you will be able to start switching characters, should you want to. In the one corner of the room, you will find suits for each of the playable characters. Simply interact with the suit of the character you want to use in order to change to them.
Note that due to the structure of the game, you will have an opportunity to switch to a different character before you go out to patrol the city at night. You will also not need to worry about leveling each character up individually, as all of them will gain experience at the same time. You will, however, need to assign skill points when you swap characters, as these will not be assigned automatically. Even though all characters level up together, their gear does not - you may want to craft gear for new characters before you try your luck on the streets of Gotham City. Each character’s Knighthood Challenges are also separate - you will need to complete these Challenges for each character to unlock their Knighthood ability tree. That being the case, it may be a good idea to stick to a single character to unlock their Knighthood skill tree.
