Batman-Themed FPS Coming From  Condemned  Developer Monolith

Batman-Themed FPS Coming From Condemned Developer Monolith

May 16, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi




Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that its Monolith Productions studio (Condemned, F.E.A.R., No One Lives Forever) will make a Batman-themed multiplayer downloadable first-person shooter.

Called Gotham City Imposters, the game pits teams of Batman and Joker inspired avatars -- called the Bats and the Jokerz, respectively -- against each other in online game modes that have been compared by some outlets to Valve's Team Fortress series.

The game takes place in an "unhinged Gotham City" where Batman's domain has been "overrun by imposters" -- modelling themselves after Batman and the Joker -- who are vying for control.

"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," said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Samantha Ryan.

The game will be released for Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network, and Windows-based PCs, the company said.
