Looks like Gotham City Impostors is heading for a free-to-play model, if the Open Steamworks Content Description Record Database is to be believed. Valve’s unofficial record of games reveals an entry titled “Gotham City Impostors F2P Trailer.”
While this certainly doesn’t constitute an official announcement, a move to F2P for the comical first-person-shooter multiplayer title wouldn’t be all that surprising. Its publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment recently moved another one of its multiplayer titles, The Lord of the Rings Online to F2P. Gotham City Impostors was released last February for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC players and received slightly above-average reviews from media outlets.
The game features two warring factions of lunatics. One side dresses up like Batman and the other side dresses up as his nemesis Joker. When a bunch of nutjobs dress up like comic book characters (and seem to genuinely invest in the personality), hilarity is bound to ensue. Matches cap out at 6v6, and players battle it out with crazy unlockable items like grappling hooks, glider wings, roller skates, explosives and a variety of weird guns that make Borderlands look like a traditional war game.
