Gotham City Impostors is a first person shooter which places gamers in the role of a vigilante (that’s not Batman) trying to end crime in Gotham – or as a criminal trying to profit as much as possible. The ESRB has given some incredibly descriptive reasons for the T-Rating, including a whole lot of sexy action time:
Some female characters are depicted in form-fitting outfits and lingerie that reveal moderate amounts of cleavage; a “sensual” voice option is also available in the customization menu (e.g., “I hope you bats like it rough.”)
Based on the concept of vigilante justice, it has the makings of a very serious game, but don’t be fooled… it won’t be.
The game includes character profile phrases such as “Cuts the cheese,” “Holding down the fart,” and “I peed on it. It’s mine”; and one comical sequence depicts a baby vomiting onto a refrigerator.
Along with the sexy/corny one-liners, Gotham City Impostors also features blood splatter, violence, and even cursing, although most of the really bad words will be censored through audible bleeps. One cut-scene features a character flipping the bird, although it’s partially obscured.
It looks like Monolith is trying to push the T-rating barrier as far as it will go for this off-shoot entry into the Gotham lore. The concept of team-based multiplayer is always intriguing but we’ll have to wait a little bit longer to tell if this is just a cash-out of the Batman: Arkham series.
There is no release date yet but Gotham City Impostors is scheduled to be released on PlayStation 3, Xbox, and PC as a downloadable title.
