THE BUZZ: Last week, a free batch of DLC was announced for the Batman-vs-Joker-themed multiplayer game Gotham City Impostors. Today, that DLC starts hitting for one of the game’s three versions.
EGM’s TAKE: Back when EGM resident super nerd Ray Carsillo reviewed Gotham City Impostors (read his review here), one complaint he had about the game was the small amount of maps available. To help make up for that, Monolith announced that the first batch of DLC for the game would be free—a nice gesture to show fans that they’re committed to the game.
Today, that DLC launches for Xbox 360 owners everywhere. How about those who own the game over on the PS3 or PC? No word about that just yet. That does frustrate me a little—all platforms should be treated equally for things such as this.
Anyhow, if you’re a fan of Gotham City Impostors, and want to know what you’ll be getting in this DLC, here’s Ray’s rundown of what it’ll include:
The DLC will contain a new map set on the 25th floor of the Gotham Times. Along with this will be two new weapons in The Falcon Blade, a bullet deflecting katana, and the Kingmaker, a quick-draw pistol. I only hope that the pistol is three-feet long like the one Jack Nicholson used to take down the Batwing in the first Michael Keaton Batman movie. That would be awesome and fit in with the humor of the game I think.
Along with this is a bevy of costume choice additions, a new “Fun Fact” perk where you can capture Gasblasters in Fumigation or attach batteries in Psychological Warfare faster, and a new gadget in Toxic Gas that will obviously harm anyone who walks into it.
The biggest part of the DLC though might be the ability to join matches in progress now and some matchmaking tweaks that could help get you into the game faster.
