New Batman Game Announced
Batman: Arkham City may be the center of superhero attention right now, but the Dark Knight has another trick up his sleeve. Warner Bros. development studio Monolith Games is working on a downloadable multiplayer Batman title called Gotham City Imposters.
In this Batman-themed third-person shooter, players take on the roles of ordinary people (one is dubbed "the Office Bat") pretending to be Batman and "imposters" of dastardly bad guys. At a presentation at a pre-E3 event this week, we were shown an image of the Joker flipping the camera the bird. Oh, and he wasnt wearing any pants.
In a mode we watched called Psych Warfare, players defended a battery hooked up to a brainwashing machine while the opposing team tried to destroy it in a capture-the-bomb-style back-and-forth. According the WB and Monolith, Gotham City Imposters will be highly customizable, and players will be able to tweak their characters body styles and weapons.
Gotham City Imposters is planned for release on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC.
