Warner Bros. Interactive today took the wraps off Gotham City Impostors, a download-only first-person shooter in which players will battle for control of a Gotham City that’s been overrun by fake Batmen (or is it Batmans?) and Jokers. The FPS, developed by Monolith Productions, will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 via XBLA and PSN, respectively. A Windows PC version is also slated for release.
A Gotham City Impostors release date has not yet been announced.
The multiplayer-only Gotham City Impostors will give players the opportunity to rebel against conformity as they customize their own characters. Posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers will create their very own Bats and Jokerz characters using customization options that include insane costumes, home-brewed gadgets and a range of traditional and imagined weapons. The game will feature maps and modes inspired by DC Comics’ Batman license.
“Gotham City Impostors blows apart expectations for superhero games with an exaggerated take on first person shooters, set in a part of the DC Universe players have never seen before,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Monolith is creating a game that turns Gotham City upside down and we think fans are going to have a blast with this creative twist on multiplayer heroism and anti-heroism as they play up the classic rivalry between Batman and The Joker.”
