About This Game

Hatched from the twisted minds at Monolith Productions, Gotham City Impostors is a download-only multiplayer FPS that pits violent vigilantes dressed up like Batman against craven criminals dressed up like the Joker in open warfare on the streets of Gotham City.

Key Features

  • Why fight crime when you can kill it… Gotham City has gone insane! Batman is up to his pointy ears in unwanted "helpers" determined to dish out their own bloodthirsty brand of vigilante justice in his name (and image). Meanwhile, a small army of self-appointed junior Jokerz has turned the streets of Gotham into a barmy battlefield of bullets, bodies, and bear traps.
  • More customization than you can shake a shotgun at… Packing more customization than you can shake a shotgun at, you get to choose the guns, gadgets and even the hairdos that fit your personality and play style. It doesn't matter if you want to be a mighty muscleman on roller skates with a hunting bow or a lithe lassie packing a homebrew rocket launcher and glider wings, Gotham City Impostors does not have rigid character classes and lets you play the way you want.
  • 1000 levels of player advancement overflowing with upgrades and unlocks… A robust level up system lets you unlock all the items required to make your impostor as crazy as you desire. Whether you prefer to develop your impostor by proving your prowess in solo challenges designed to test your skills and reflexes or by battling your way to the top of the scoreboard in several delightfully over-the-top multiplayer modes, there's a surefire way for you to realize your preposterous potential!

THIS GAME IS ♥♥♥♥ING DEAD TAKE IT OFF STEAM AND KILL THE SEVERS SO IT STOPS HOGGING SPACE IN PEOPLE'S LIBRARIES!






I've only found one game and that was by changing my steam download range from Canada to China and it was the laggiest ♥♥♥♥ing online game I have ever ♥♥♥♥ing played. with out changing my download range I have never found a single match.

again this game is ♥♥♥♥ing dead

WB would have killed the servers if it wasnt a player hosted game. thats right this game is player hosted so if you kill the wrong person they can kick you from the game for no reason.

its also unbalanced as ♥♥♥♥ the tankier classes are just free headshot machines and the secret to wining is: Stock Body, Roller Blades, Auto Shottgun. with this build your small enough to not be headshot constantly quick enough to close almost any gap and spray with your shotty and tanky enough to soak up a few stray hits. I was able to climb to level 7 in just one game using this build and I'm not even that good at shooters.

Gotham City Imposters first time reaction:

1. Oh cool, this menu is actually pretty cool.

3. Alright let’s do th-

4. A tutorial in 20XX!? Un♥♥♥♥ing heard of!

5. Oh my god this looks exactly like call of duty.

6. This is call of duty.

7. Oh these are some controls.

8. Stop ♥♥♥♥ing rushing me I’m trying to change your broken ♥♥♥ sensitivity.

9. Okay, these are still the worst controls.

10. Okay finished the unskippable tutorial, great. I now know what could’ve just been a little window to pop up saying “PRESS/HOLD MIDDLE MOUSE TO X”

11. Alright let’s do this ♥♥♥♥.

12. Oh ♥♥♥♥ this is actually pretty fun.

13. I helped in killing this guy, was totally my kill but whatever.

14. Awwwright, liking this, let’s heal up an-

15. Dies after 3 big ol’ explosions.

16. Ah ♥♥♥♥, oh well, lemme change cla-

*double presses esc*

17. Did, did I just leave by double pressing escape...?

18. Oh, no I was kicked.

19. This is not a good game.

20. I’m going to make a review of it.

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA BAD HOST!


Great gameplay, but sadly it will never get the work it needs i.e. netcode and bad implementation of P2P hosting being one of the main problems.

Class configuration could REALLY do with balancing, but hey, who needs that when you can divebomb / jackhammer everyone to have a good looking K/D.

Either way it's free and casual non competitive fun. Just try it.

First of all , For all the DC Fanboys out there ,
This is the game for y'all

Game has nice mechanics and no game-breaking exploits so far.


The only problem are the servers.
There are no Asian servers. only US East / West and EU

Best game ever, had about 1k hours on this game on XBOX, but on PC no one plays it, really sucks, underrated as all hell. 10/10 game, but also impossible to find a match.

This game isn't bad, but it isn't great.
Servers can sometimes be incredibly hard to find, and players are sort of scarce, yet this is one of the WAY better play 2 win titles on the steam market. Sniping is incredibly fun and rewarding (Buccaneer is amazing.) and this is way less pay to win than you would think.
Now, sit down.
When you think of free to play, whats the first thing that comes to mind? If you answered microtransactions, you are right.
Well, forget about those. This game balances that out. You can buy guns, but all the guns are balanced in their own way, and each gun is not so godly overpowered that nothing can stop it. You usually can find a strategy. Some things are overpowered, yes, like the thermal wallhack goggles, but they are useful. Back to pay2win, this game isn't that at all. You can buy some guns, you can buy calling cards and backgrounds, costume coins (currency used to buy outfits for your player) and thats pretty much it. No instant buy max rank, nothing like that. This game is far better than games like Blacklight Retribution, and this game actually sucks you in. You must complete that next challenge, that next achivement...
This game has a remarkable hit detection for a free2play shooter, I must mention.
Also, this is coming from a guy who HATES super heroes and the like, while this is literally the ONLY super hero related anything game I will play without being bored.
Besides, who doesn't wanna shoot a few Joker clones?
Also, the wallhack goggles aren't THAT overpowered. Your teammates can see the enemies as well as you, but only for around 15 seconds, overpowered maybe a tiny bit.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go shoot some more jokers in the face with a sniper rifle.

I used to love this game and play it on PS3 all the time, but ever since I installed it on Steam the community has seemed dead. Which it does not deserve as its a really fun and competitive game.

I put in a whole lot more time on the console version. (It was an absolutely awful experience despite playing for at least 200 hours back then.) Pretty good game that you can play for free now, only problem is that PC version is dead and the only game mode anybody plays is Team Deathmatch. Say goodbye to the fun objective modes, because you'll be playing Team Deathmatch with the same 20 people on the same server for eternity.
Fun, but not recommending because ded and some gadgets/weapons are still stupidly overpowered.

Best free to play fps out there. It's hilarious, offers some interesting new elements (you can fly with a glider rig), and fun. It is not pay to win either! Only problem is game is kind of dead. This means once you are in a lobby, you won't really see any other people. Also people only play TDM.

8/10 for deadness
10/10 for gameplay
Great game!
