Monolith Productions, the guys behind Gotham City Impostors
, have recently patched the game through an update that sought to remove quick-scoping, nerf a few weapons, and adjust some framerate issues, all according to feedback from the beta period. As a thanks to the bat-beta faithful, they have now announced a free DLC package with quite a few worthwhile additions.A BRAND NEW MAP: The 25th Floor of the Gotham Times building is about to be your playground for destruction! (Just make sure not to fall of the edge.)
JOIN-IN-PROGRESS: Players can now join a match, even after it has started!
MATCHMAKING FIXES: There have been numerous additional fixes to resolve nasty potential connection errors! Stability is something we strive for, and is always being improved.
NEW WEAPONS: The Falcon Blade (a bullet-blocking katana worthy of warfare in Gotham) and the Kingmaker (a quick-draw pistol that can humble even the mightiest of Mighties) are available for you to unlock!
A NEW SUPPORT ITEM: Toxic Gas! Leave a cloud of nigh-invisible noxious vapors in your wake, that will impair and damage those foolish enough to follow you.
A MULTITUDE OF NEW COSTUME CHOICES: In addition to the myriad of costume items already available, we’re letting you dress up like a luchador, a corporate schlub gone mad, and so much more!
NEW FUN FACT: The new Nimble Fingers Fun Fact will let you capture Gasblasters faster, and attach/detach batters quicker. The team’s clutch player? Yeah, that’s you.
The lack of a join-in-progress option was a major problem for early adopters, but this DLC, which is due to release sometime in March, will surely fix those issues. Gotham City Impostors
is on XBLA for 1200 MSP.
