Gotham City Imposters Coming to XBLA, PSN, and PC

May 16, 2011, By Christian Davis

A shooter set in the Batman universe? Sounds like a strange idea, but is also pretty cool to show a new side of the Batman dark setting. Lets get this out of the way first; Batman doesn’t use guns and you will not be able to play as him. Most comic book fans should know that bit of information already.

The idea of the game is quite simple, since you’re not playing as any of the main characters from the Batman series, you’ll be playing as highly customizable “imposters” on either Team Batman or Team Joker.

The announcement was made at Warner Bros. Interactive pre-E3 event and F.E.A.R. development team Monolith Productions is behind it.  The Press Release states that players will be “posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers will create their very own Bats and Jokerz.”

After all the customization, you’ll put your character in several maps and gametypes all inspired by DC Comic’s Batman license. The official GothamCityImpostors website is also live and provides links to their Facebook page.

Interesting idea for a game to say the least. Let us know what you guys think of the new announcement in the comments below.
