As for the gameplay, it uses a third-person perspective and involves a classic beat-em-up playstyle. Furthermore, instead of using a known DC character, you play a custom character mainly. Similar to past games, you would have access to different iconic characters, this time, the ones in Batman’s Rogue Gallery.
