Gotham City Imposters coming January 10

The odd Batman-inspired multiplayer shooter, Gotham City Imposters, will be available on January 10th. The downloadable title will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC.

For the uniniated, Gotham City Imposters is a 6v6 online FPS where "Imposters," inspired by the Batman and Joker decide to go to war with each other. Unlike the stoic hero of the series, you'll be able to carry guns and, presumably, kill people.

The open beta is expected to go live in December and, oddly, is expected to launch on Xbox 360 and PS3 only. "This is an open beta, but we will have a limited number of codes," the sign-up page explains.

While the premise is quirky, odd, and decidedly un-Arkham, the developer's pedigree merits some enthusiasm. Monolith Productions is best known for their work on FEAR and Condemned.
