    Impostors. Not Imposters. Apparently.
    Impostors. Not Imposters. Apparently.

    UPDATE: The official press release is out, bringing us fresh details--and the game's logo.

    Gotham City Impostors pits an army of fake Batmans against an arm of fake Jokers (a clever narrative way of getting around Batman's inability to wield a gun) with a detailed customization system. The release claims players will have access to "insane costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons."

    At the event in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. allowed judges (in this case, our very own Mr. Gerstmann) to play a map called Amusement MIle.

    --

    You read that right.

    Kicking off a series of pre-E3 events down in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Gotham City Impostors, a downloadable, first-person, competitive multiplayer Batman game. That's a mouthful.

    Gotham City Impostors is in development at F.E.A.R. creator Monolith, targeted for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC this year.

    That's about all we know about the game right now, though. Stay tuned for more details!

    I get the feeling you're going to be playing as something similar to those "fake" Batmen from The Dark Knight.

    This reminds me of Dark Knight Returns, where the Mutant gang splinters into other random themed groups.  Let's hope one side is the Sons of Batman.

     I assume all players play as Batman at the same time, in an effort to decide the "real" Batman. Thus, the title.

    Glad they're doing this to get a multiplayer Batman game out there rather than forcing Rocksteady to shoehorn it into Arkham City.

    What.

    1. This isn't what I wanted to see from Monolith.
    2. This isn't what I wanted to see from the Batman license.
    3. I don't think I want a downloadable multiplayer FPS in general.
    4. I don't even think I want a new multiplayer FPS, period.
    They'll have to sell me pretty hard on this.

    I am kind of bummed Monolith wasn't working on NOLF3 (as far as we know, but probably not). First-person and Multiplayer paired with Batman does not exactly fill me with confidence, guess I am kind of happy they didn't try cramming this into Arkham City.


    I like Monolith, but the multiplayer side of their games has never been their strong suit, maybe if it is the primary focus we could see something cool. The success of Arkham Asylum doesn't give any other licensed Batman game a pass so this has a lot to prove.

    Its a first-person competitive multiplayer batman game, no where in there do i see the word "shooter". Just because somethings in first person doesnt make it a FPS, im sure this will use some kind of interesting mechanic that makes it stand out from the usual first-person games.
