Gotham City Impostors
Basic Information

Hatched from the twisted minds at Monolith Productions, Gotham City Impostors is a download-only multiplayer FPS that pits violent vigilantes dressed up like Batman against craven criminals dressed up like the Joker in open warfare on the streets of Gotham City. Batman may have vowed to never use a gun, but you're not the Dark Knight - you're an impostor! And luckily for you, the streets are filled with all kinds of faux-Jokers, and that means it's time to grab a gun and cut loose! After all, why fight crime when you can kill it?

About the Game

Gotham City, the home of the Batman, is in the grip of one of the strangest crime waves of all time. Gangs of "junior Jokers" are wandering the streets, terrorizing the people with a collection of weapons so bizarre it makes the real Joker look positively sane. The only thing standing between them and completely anarchy: A similar collection of wanna-be Batmen, who are looking to dish out some justice and aren't quite as particular as the real Caped Crusader about how it gets done.

Gotham City Impostors is a team-based shooter in which groups of Batman and Joker fanboys suit up and do battle in the streets of the city. They don't throw punches and kicks, however, but try to do each other in with a huge variety of lethal guns and gadgets. And like Batman's classic utility belt, it's all about customization: you can be a mighty muscleman on roller skates with a hunting bow or a lithe lassie packing a homebrew rocket launcher and glider wings. The game does not lock players into tightly-defined character classes, so you can unleash mayhem in whatever manner you see fit.

Up to 12 players will engage in over-the-top Psych Warfare, Fumigation, Bounty Hunter and Team Deathmatch battles. Psych Warfare is effectively Capture the Flag, as teams try to bring a battery back to their base to power a machine that will brainwash the other side; Fumigation is a checkpoint game that requires teams to capture and hold points on the map; Bounty Hunter requires players to collect coins from killed enemies; and Deathmatch should be reasonably self-explanatory - just kill anything that's not on your team. There's also a training mode, and single-player "Challenges" used to master gadgets and earn extra experience.

Gotham City Impostors is free to download and play, and offers nearly 40 DLC packs for gamers who want to add a little zing to their Bat-shooter craziness. Players can purchase multiple levels of weapon and gadget packs, support items, costumes of all sorts - be a Bat-Luchador! - experience boosts, the "Ultimate Impostor Kit," and more. And with 1000 levels of player advancements, the mean streets of Gotham will keep you busy for a long, long time.

Let's face it: You're not Batman. But you've got a mask, a bunch of guns and an amoral willingness to use them. In Gotham City Impostors, that's close enough.
