Cowboy Joker? Pirate Batman? Thank You, Gotham City Impostors for These Ridiculous Super-Costumes A few months back, the Monolith-developed shooter offered a wacky if inconsistent take on criminals and crusaders in Batman's hometown. Gotham City Impostors imagined what ordinary folks who idolized the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime would do if let loose in all-out gunfights.

Part of the fun of GCI comes from stitching together bizarre outfits for your characters. But this batch might be the goofiest yet. The Bat-costumes don't even have masks and the giant Yosemite Sam-style mustaches on the Rodeo Joker look utterly silly. You'd never be scared of these guys. Maybe that's the point.

The gang in charge of Gotham City Impostors wants you to know another wad of cool content is dropping soon, all for the affordable price of $0.00. It has yet to release, but that video above has, which means the title update is on the way soon.


You'll get a new map, the East End of Gotham, which the local Realtors say is perfect for your "scummy dilapidated urban murdering needs." Nice. A new game mode, "Bounty Hunter" encourages you to pick up coins dropped from fallen friends and foes alike. Finally, English is no longer your character's only language option; Spanish, French, Italian and German will be included.

If you're anything like us, you're <i>not</i> going to be attending PAX East this weekend. Don't get us wrong, it looks like it's going to be a great time!

Here are the new challenges, waiting for you right now:
