If the game crashes at startup or launch
While PC players are greeted with a black screen as soon as they launch the game, Gotham Knights keeps crashing upon startup after the epilepsy warning screen for PS5 users.
If you are on PC, we recommend you make sure your graphics drivers are fully updated as outdated drivers are the main cause of black screen in games. Also, verify the integrity of your game files. If the issue persists, your only option is to wait until the devs patch the problem.
