Played beta. Surprisingly fun. It's not Batman with guns, its more like those guys in the Dark Knight that had shotguns and were wearing hockey pads.
Batman-inspired team-based first-person shooter set to hit XBLA, PSN, and PC at the beginning of next year.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is making a New Year's resolution to enlist gamers in (virtual) neighborhood street gangs. The publisher today announced that Gotham City Impostors, a team-based first-person shooter based on DC Comics' Batman franchise, now has a release date of January 10, 2012, on Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC. A beta was also confirmed to kick off in December.
Gotham City Impostors is "Batman with guns," according to its developer. However, as fans know, Batman doesn't usually wield guns. Thus, Impostors casts players as citizens of Gotham City who are inspired by either Batman or the Joker.
Monolith has a long history with first-person shooters. F.E.A.R. and Condemned have been the company's recent efforts in the genre, but the lineage goes back further with PC fan favorites, including No One Lives Forever, Aliens vs. Predator 2, Shogo, Blood, and more.

Tried the beta today, and it was okay but not too much fun.. not worth paying for, though if it goes free to play then maybe id play it again.
THIS LOOKS WIRED.....not sure how they came up with it or what they smoked while playing Team Fortress in order to make this game that wired? i dont see a bright futur to this gamebut i wish it my best...
two words. stupid. fun. that is enough for me! the GOTY edition of arkham city should have this too. i can not wait for this game
FPS + Batman? And after a couple of months they'll release a "Zombie DLC package" for this game, because zombies are also hot right now.
Of ALL the genres they choose to make a game of, it just had to be another online FPS multiplayer game...
"Hey, let's rip-off Team Fortress!" "Nah, that's never gonna sell. They will just keep playing TF2." "What if we apply a major license to it?" "Maybe. What do you have in mind?" "Batman! Everyone loves Batman! He's so hot right now." "Oh, yeah! Greenlight that baby!"
I played an early build of this at E3 and it was actually pretty fun. From what I've heard this will be a cheap D2C title. I would never pay $60 for it, but $15-$20 would be about right.
This game not going to be any good and done by fear. i feel soz for them doing this game a really do . But i bet pp agree this game should done by Rocksteady studios since they where ones made Batman so great as a gam.
Oh, I didn't realize Monolith is making this..... Blood, Fear.....this is definitely going to be worth at least checking out. In the end though Arkham City is higher on my list but I'm getting that when the GOTY edition comes out.
Batman is cool because he doesn't use guns and he's not an imposter. So basically, this game is all about the reasons that Batman isn't lame, and you don't get to play as him... Who came up with this idea again?
Sort of a life-meets-art paradigm here. In other words, I'm sure this will come off like a poor imitation.
