Gotham City Imposters to offer unprecidented character customization

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have just announced Gotham City Imposters, a download-only first-person shooter inspired by Batman and The Joker. Players battle for control of an unhinged Gotham City overrun by imposters. Developed by Monolith Productions, the game will be available on PC as well as the Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Marketplace and Sony’s PlayStation Network.

“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,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “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.”

Gotham City Impostors is a multiplayer game that gives players the opportunity to customize their own characters. Posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers will create their very own “Bats” and “Jokerz” characters using customization options including insane costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons.

The game will also feature maps and modes inspired by DC Comics’ Batman license.
