Yesterday Warner Bros Interactive revealed its newest game, a downloadable FPS set in Batman’s Gotham City, developed by Monolith (FEAR, Condemned) titled Gotham City Impostors. The first details on the multiplayer-focused FPS were a lot to handle, especially coming to terms with the fact that you’d be playing as vigilantes inspired by Batman and Joker, instead of playing as those iconic characters. Perhaps that’s hard to picture with just a logo and a description, so Warner was nice enough to release the first art for the game:
It certainly looks interesting. Our first description of the game being influenced by Team Fortress 2 makes sense now, as most of the characters are stylized and a tad comical. Compared to the world of Arkham Asylum, these guys seem a little out there, but in a fun way. Also those accessories and items they’re carrying are probably just a taste of the customizable options open to you in character creation. When comparing the looks of both sides, personally we’ll side with the Bats for now, but now that you’ve seen them, which gang do you side with?
