Batman FPS confirmed by Warner

F.E.A.R team making download-only shooter

The much-rumoured Gotham City Imposters is a multiplayer first-person shooter headed to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, Warner Bros. has finally confirmed.

Gotham City Impostors is, as previously rumoured via retailer listings and registered domains, a competitive multiplayer FPS that has you posing as "amateur vigilantes or villains" in an "unhinged Gotham City overrun by impostors inspired by the DC Comics characters Batman and The Joker". It's in development at FEAR studio Monolith.


Character customisation will feature, apparently letting players "create their very own Bats and Jokerz characters" using tools that include "costumes, homebrewed gadgets and a wide range of traditional and imagined weapons".

Warner's senior VP of production and development, Samantha Ryan, said: "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."

There no word on its release date just yet. Warner's Batman: Arkham City is due out for 360, PS3 and PC in October.
