Although Gotham Knights has some notable differences from the Batman Arkham series, it has nevertheless brought back some features that fans loved (and hated) from its predecessor. From the freedom to customize a player’s hero to taking down guys in style. Gotham Knights has Challenging puzzles have also been reintroduced for players to solve if they want to advance the story.
A puzzle that will have players scratching their heads is this Floor Plate Puzzle from case 4.2 (Orchard Hotel Mission). Luckily, this isn’t the hardest part puzzle in Gotham Knights since the solution is a little more obvious than players think.
Hints for solving the Orchard Hotel puzzle
In the room with the four pressure plates, players will also see four different paintings of Gotham City landmarks and the date they were built under the painting. Now players must memorize this data and step on the pressure plate that corresponds to each landmark based on when it was built (from oldest to newest).
The solution would be 1836, 1841, 1842and 1877. So now the players have to match the buildings in the painting with those of the statues in the middle of the room. Players will also notice that each statue has a corresponding Court of Owl icon, which is a small clue as to who the Gotham Knights will have to confront later in the mission. Stepping on the wrong pressure plate does not harm the player (like other puzzles) but resets the puzzle.
