To The Betacave! Gotham City Imposters

The Dark Knight's Spyglasses

Gotham City Imposters, which can very loosely be described as Team Fortress 2 populated by armies of crazies pretending to be either Batman or the Joker, is two important things: 1) the first game from NOLF-makers Monolith since the dour FEAR 2, and more importantly their first attempt to do humour and outlandishness rather than po-faced horror since 2003 2) bonkers.

This is why my bat-sense is tingling at news GCI has opened beta sign-ups.
The concept of bad-themed vigilantes battling clown-themed thugs across an urban playground is both a welcome injection of silliness into grim’n’gritty batworld and a smart way of getting around the problem that everyone only wants to be Batman or the Joker in a DC Comics-based game.

While superficially TF-esque, it is apparently classless – you’ll unlock abilities, body types and costume parts as you level up, and can combine ’em however you fancy. If you want to a rocket launcher-wielding medic who looks like a leprous Harley Quinn, you can. Well done you.

Oh hey, let’s play that trailer again.

CG, eh? So here’s some RealPlay(TM) VidLook(TM) for you too.
