Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment delays first-person shooter take on the Batman franchise for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC without explanation.
The real Batman is punctual, always arriving in the nick of time to save the day and thwart the Joker's latest villainous schemes. Fake Batmen are less so, as evidenced by today's announcement from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment that Gotham City Impostors has been delayed to next month.
Previously expected to launch January 10, Gotham City Impostors is a downloadable first-person shooter set in Batman's stomping grounds with teams of Dark Knight-inspired vigilantes taking on mobs of Joker-themed goons. The game will allow for extensive customization of player characters, including exaggerated costumes and "homebrew" weaponry.
Gotham City Imposters is set for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
great game but i am never able to find servers, connecting to players is balls, maybe due to a lack of players but still frustrating
I'm playing the beta right now and this game definitely has potential. I'm actually happy to see it delayed because it just means more work is being put in to the game.
I prefer delays over a lot of things these days, absolutely sick of developers releasing broken games(Looking at you Skyrim) WE ARE NOT YOUR BETA TESTERS!!!! I am still dealing with textures never loading properly, Horses I dismount catapulting themselves in a random direction(dying obviously), backwards flying dragons(still...), Glitched quests I can't turn in, the list goes on
The beta's a *LOT* of fun, but I do hope they balance it out a bit better. Allowing a guy that can laugh off two rockets to the chest to both be stealthy *AND* use a glider to move as fast as everyone else...That's just kinda bad, makes the lighter characters moot :( Still fun as hell though.
I don't know about you guys but I think this is a bad move to release Gotham city Impostors in February because there are lots of heavy games coming out in February and they are: Twisted Metal, The Darkness 2, and PS Vita with 20 Launch Games, so I'm worry that GCI will be over shadow and they need to release the game in March and the only game that is in March is Mass Effect 3.
This game is amazing. I've played the beta and the core mechanics are just outstanding. I was skeptical at first but after the first couple of hours playing it, I was sold. Similar to Team Fortress 2 but it's got it's own uniqueness to it. Only thing I would add is more different types of game play which I'm sure they will add. Delay is not such a bad thing. I'm all for it if it makes the game better. Definitely getting this for PSN. My advice is try it before you brush it off. It will surprise you.
I played the PS3 beta up to the level cap. For having a seemingly dumb idea for a game, the execution is great. Games at their core are about fun, and this game has it in spades. The character customization, support items, and zany abilities make the game a blast. Reminds me of a mash-up of Team Fortress 2 mixed with the Batman universe and featuring the elements of BioShock 2's multiplayer that worked. Sure, it's not a big budget shooter like MW3 or BF3, but I had more fun with the beta than I've had with other recent "serious" shooters.
this game is fun with a crazy premise, but when you get to the nuts and bolts it's another dime a dozen FPS.
I hope they improve the matchmaking. That always seems like a problem for me. Other than that this game is awesome!
I've heard of the game, but never tried the beta. I'll wait for the demo. Doesn't seem like anything to overreact about.
I'm glad. the game is amazingly and surprisingly fun. However there are some major issues such as constant lag. But it isnt regular lag where you constantly freeze, this lag makes your character crazy and starts shooting and controlling itself.
wow, and so close to the release date too...*sigh* well it better not be around the last week of february.
I really hate publishers for not giving a reason for delaying their games. There is a need for more transparency for publishers as gamers should be informed on why games are being delayed or even cancelled.
