WBIE and DC Entertainment have announced the development of Gotham City Imposters, a download-only, multiplayer first person shooter set in the popular Universe of Batman and the Joker, in the works at FEAR creator Monolith Productions.
There's no screenshots or trailers so far and the press release
doesn't get very specific, but the best we can tell is that players don't actually play as Batman of the Joker, but rather custom-created vigilantes or villains aligned with either the "Bats" or "Jokerz" teams.
Gotham City Impostors is a multiplayer game unlike any other, giving players the opportunity to rebel against conformity as they customize their own characters. Posing as amateur vigilantes or villains, gamers will create their very own Bats and Jokerz characters using unprecedented customization options including insane costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons.
Gotham City Imposters is being developed for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. No release date has yet been mentioned.
