Gamers who pre-order Gotham Knights will unlock a special Batcycle skin that references the vehicle’s first comic book appearance.
Developer Warner Bros. Games Montréal revealed the 233 Kustom Batcycle skin serves as a direct nod to the specialized motorbike’s debut in Detective Comics #233. While the name will undoubtedly be appreciated by long-time Batman fans, the actual design of the bike is very different.
