Gotham Knights has been treated to a new 15-floor raid named The Kelvin Incident, available now as part of a new PS5 update. This builds upon the previous Heroic Assault patch, meaning you'll need to have unlocked it and also finished all the Villain Crimes in the base game to access The Kelvin Incident. You'll be able to earn mythic gear in the raid and there will also be a new material in the free PS5 update.
In addition to new enemies, rewards include new suit and batcycle transmogs. Elsewhere, the patch brings about new accessibility settings like controller remapping and text-to-speech support. Have a read through the patch notes below, and let us know if you'll take The Kelvin Incident for a spin in the comments.

Oh.... right, this game exists still.
Is it updated to 60fps yet?
I've yet to play this. It's got ps plus written all over it so will wait too play it then
Just finished this to other day. Was pleasantly surprised. Nothing groundbreaking but had a good time with it.
30fps is not the way on next gen only.. nope
Just here for the 60fps comments 😀
The post release support has been really strong and weirdly free with no MTX.
Wasn't going to buy this, then I heard a guy called Kelvin is in it. So, er, sold?
It's a shame more people didn't have as much fun as me and my buddy with this game. Got it for like $35 and beat it twice + heroic assaults.
I've just repurchased the physical version again to go for these trophies, it's not that bad a game.
@pushL7 Same. Story (or at least the final act) was a little lame, but the combat and individual missions were fun. I soloed as Babs for the duration. I'll likely have another run at it sometime.
I’ll definitely be going back for these trophies. This game got a very undeserved bad rap. It was actually quite fun. It wasn’t at the level of the Arkham games but it wasn’t far off either. And in light of what the upcoming Suicide Squad game looks like, Gotham Knights is gonna be a LOT closer to the Arkham games than that is (if that’s what you’re looking for).
Does anyone play this anymore or cares about this update? 😂
Currently playing through this and it’s a lot of fun. Can be had super cheap now and worth every penny. Cracking game.
Personally I really enjoyed the game and put a lot of time into it. I also balked at the 30fps and bought into all the negative press, but after waiting for it to go on sale and playing it (post patches), it's really not noticeable at all and it affected literally nothing in the game. It was more than playable at 30fps and played great. It was a lot of fun, it was gorgeous, combat was a blast, and had high production value.
Sadly I felt like this was another case of a perfectly decent (or, dare I say it, good) game that fell victim to a bad press bandwagon effect and unfair comparisons to other games. It was compared to the Arkham games a lot because...reasons? It's the same universe or it's another open world type game in the Batman universe? Similar (albeit different) combat? Totally different game though, and honestly the lack of mobs on the streets was totally fine and affected nothing, and the crime system worked great.
My personal opinion, but if you were curious about the game, I'd recommend checking it out at least, despite the 30fps. It's a good game and plays great, IMO.
@Smiffy01 yeah which is weird because the low (or perhaps average) framerate is the least of this game's problems honestly. they could patch for 60fps but it's still gonna be kinda boring.
The ironic thing about those 60fps lovers is that they lack of the proper telly to play at 120Hz mode, they claim that "true" games run at 60fps... I usually play at resolution/quality mode even at 30fps, but I prefer better games that uses ALL, VRR, etc so I can enjoy constant 60fps or 120Hz mode... This game is very good, and even at 30fps it's quite fluid so it's fine, the co-op mode is great and getting the trophies is fun, also experiment various play styles is brilliant. But you can enjoy your retro pixilated games at 60fps...
Loved the game and was hoping for story dlc.
Glad to know they are still working on the game.
This game was unfairly treated. Its a wicked game and i really enjoyed it. I would have liked 60fps but its one of those rare games where the frame pacing was spot on so 30fps was not too intrusive. Was it perfect? No way but i think people hated on it way too much.
Who's kelvin anybody know
Going to wait for those 60fps, 30 is dreadful and I am not going backwards.
I mean even if they can't do 60fps, what about 40fps for 120hz displays?
@CieloAzure @djape @Throb Also still waiting for a 60 FPS patch, not buying the game until that drops.
Get over the Framerate folks. It's getting pathetic now.
