Warner Bros. Announces Gotham City Impostors

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment announced today that they will be bringing a download-only, first-person shooter to XBLA titled Gotham City Impostors.

In Gotham City Impostors, players will battle for control of a Gotham which is "overrun by impostors inspired by the DC Comics characters Batman and The Joker". The game will be focused on multiplayer, which will allow for customizable characters. You can create either "Bats" or "Jokerz" characters and use them to pose as vigilantes or villains. Perhaps obviously, the maps and modes in the game will be inspired by the Batman license.

Monolith, the development team behind Condemned: Criminal Origins, will be taking the reigns on Gotham City Impostors. Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment commented briefly on the game's development.

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. 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.
No release window was given for Gotham City Impostors at this time.
