As per other experts in the gaming industry, the Gotham Knight is going to be a great game according to the experts. Whereas according to my own experience, Gotham Knight is a perfect next-gen game, but one may need a lot of hardware juice in order to play this game on PC. Also, I am eager for the actual 4K 60 FPS performance of the game. From some of the scenes in the gameplay trailer, we can see the game emphasized on the Ray Tracing Tech quite much, so I think Nvidia RTX cards would perform better for the game on the PCs.
