Having pushed Gotham City Impostors from its previous Januasy release date, Warner Bros and DC Entertainment have today announced that the madcap, downloadable shooter that pits the Bats against the Jokerz in an insane battle on the streets of Gotham City, will now be coming to XBLA next week.

With support for up to 12 players, you'll be able to customise your own Batman or Joker impostors from a range of items, and do battle with your own mix of automatic weaponry, homebrew gadgets and equipment, like spring boots, gliding rigs, grappling hooks and ziplines.

Gotham City Impostors will be setting the stage for the Bats and Jokerz to fight when the game launches on the Xbox Live Arcade on February 8th for 1200 Microsoft Points.

1200 points for a multiplayer game almost like a retail game, not bad. Might get it.

@#2 - There is no single player in this game. I tried the demo, okay at best.

I played 4 matches on the beta and that was enough to convince me to give the game a pass. Die hard Batman fans only.

I liked the Beta a lot, but not $15 liked it.

Especially since it's multiplayer-only and I can guarantee that I probably won't be playing it that much until I've plowed through my insane backlog of single player titles.

If it goes down in price, maybe I'll pick it up. *sigh*

Forgot to mention, it's also bad enough that this came out during the whole "XBLA House Party".

Even if I wasn't swamped with titles, I just can't buy Alan Wake, Warped, I Am Alive and Gotham City Imposters. Sad times. So many cool Arcade titles this month.

This was a day 1 buy... Jan 10th. Since day 1 revised to Feb 8th, Comes second to Kingdom of Amalur: Reckoning.

Sorry WBI IF you look at release dates for Retail games you may have made more sales...

I played the Beta and while it was enjoyable at times. For me, it's not worth 1200 points. Not with I Am Alive, Alan Wake coming out.

Ah well, I have enough games to shoot at things right now anyway.

Well worth the 1200 points. Because I can afford it and the game is pretty damn awesome. Beats all the other XBLA games coming out this month.

Not worth $15.00. Lots of things to fix. Beta was ok, but got boring after a while. It'll go on sale, then maybe I'll get it.

800 would have been a good price. 1200 is too much, I'll pick it up when It's on sale.

I must have overlooked the info on this game, but is this game public matches only or will there be private match capability? Beta has been fun, but takes FOREVER to get a match. Hope upon release the lobbies are full.

Same as #9. The beta was fun but its not something I would buy at full price. I still have to finish of the riddler trophies for Arkham City anyways plus a metric asston of other retail games that I bought when they were on a good sale that I haven't even opened yet.

I loved the Beta so much! It's a really, really fun game... But I own enough multiplayer only XBLA games that are absolutely dead.. I got enough fun out of the Beta I suppose.. Maybe further down the road if I read that it has a good community I'll pick it up.

While I liked the beta, I'm buying Amalur that week. I'd pick this up a few weeks later, but it's probable the community will have advanced to the point where I'll be paired against level 200s (the game goes to level 1000). I'd then be completely outgunned and outclassed, so I probably won't pick it up. It's a shame.

This game was really disappointing. It's just Call of Duty with a few zany weapons but overall boring gameplay and modes and a poorly paced unlock system.

This turned out to be a disappointing game, i was really looking forward to it but having played the beta/demo its not worth 1200 points, looks like im only buying one arcade game this month and that's Alan Wakes:AN.

I'm a huge Batman fan, and I couldn't be less excited for this game. I predict that the multiplayer will be all but dead by the time I managed to get to playing it, and with nothing of a single player game to speak of and a $15 price tag, it just isn't going to happen. How about a DC Universe Online for Xbox instead, Warner Brothers?

@#37, folks are still playing Battlefield 1943 and it's multiplayer only. This game has been out for a quite bit of time. Same goes for Monday Night Combat. I'm sure plenty of players will continue to play Gotham Impostors for a long time to come. I know I will be playing long time.

Odd, I haven't been having any problems connecting to matches. Are you guys sure that your NATs are opened and your ports are forwarded and so on?

Anyway, I actually like what I've seen so far. Yeah, the unlock system is a bit slow paced, but the action of that game is frenetic and chaotic in a good way. Grappling all over the map like you're playing Ocarina of Time is fun by itself.

I'm with @18

What with Shank 2, The Simpsons Arcade & Alan Wake AN coming out around the same period, i'm waiting for it to drop in price in the DOTW sometime.

A lot of the experienced players will have dropped off by then due to games like Mass Effect 3 etc being out, leaving us "noobs" to not get destroyed.

I've been playing the Beta, and it's fun, but nothing groundreaking.

You can get the PC version for $11.25 on Green Man Gaming by using the coupon CUSTO-MERLO-YALTY. I've pre-purchased it, should be good.

Been playing the Beta since last week, and I gotta say I'm addicted. This game really brings back the fun for me for an FPS. Even when I'm frustrated when some guy uses a really cheap load out I'm still having a great time. First day for me.

Anyone complaining about this being multiplayer-only, this is basically TF2.

It's worth it.

@#1 This is hardly like a retail release... I don't really have any interest in this game at this point and predict it will end up like Blacklight. But it reminds that I need to get back to Batman in New Game + soon=)

I cant believe half of you are saying this game is rubbish.
Not sure if you noticed but this was a beta, so of course its not going to be top notch, but why should a game be based on its play-ability because of a beta. The beta for BF3 was SH** but look at that game now! The idea of beta's it to give you a taste of the full game and to use it as a chance to improve before the full game, else they would of just released the full game. Yes it took a while to get into matches but if you also remember not that many people signed up to the beta because most people were just far to lazy.

I actually really enjoyed the beta, reminds me of Team Fortress, well worth the points.
