Free Gotham City Impostors DLC Coming Next Month

GothamCityImpostors

After a brief delay sidelined the game for its early January release, Gotham City Impostors, the download and multiplayer only FPS about warring Batman and The Joker lookalikes, has launched this week via the PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and major PC digital distribution networks. Peep the celebratory launch trailer down below and keep an eye out for our review coming your way soon.

Gotham City Impostors isn’t even a full day old yet, but news of the game’s first downloadable content pack has already surfaced. Good news, too — it’ll be free!

In March, Warner Bros. and Monolith will be releasing a free DLC pack for Gotham City Impostors. It’ll contain a brand new map — called the “25th Floor” — for wannabe Batmen and Jokerz to do battle on, plus over 100 additional customizations, such as new weapons, support items, costume packs, and calling card elements.

A couple matchmaking fixes will also be issued as part of the update, including a join-in-progress option allowing players to hop into matches that have already started and other upgrades to sure up the servers and squash connection errors.

Here’s a complete list of what will be included in the free add-on:

– A BRAND NEW MAP: The 25th Floor of the Gotham Times building is about to be your playground for destruction! (Just make sure not to fall of the edge.)

– JOIN-IN-PROGRESS: Players can now join a match, even after it has started!

– MATCHMAKING FIXES: Matchmaking has been totally revamped! Those errors you remember? They’re a thing of the past. Gone. Finito.

– NEW WEAPONS: The Falcon Blade (a bullet-blocking katana worthy of warfare in Gotham) and the Kingmaker (a quick-draw pistol that can humble even the mightiest of Mighties) are available for you to unlock!

– A NEW SUPPORT ITEM: Toxic Gas! Leave a cloud of nigh-invisible noxious vapors in your wake, that will impair and damage those foolish enough to follow you.

– A MULTITUDE OF NEW COSTUME CHOICES: In addition to the myriad of costume items already available, we’re letting you dress up like a luchador, a corporate schlub gone mad, and so much more!

– NEW FUN FACT: The new Nimble Fingers Fun Fact will let you capture Gasblasters faster, and attach/detach batters quicker. The team’s clutch player? Yeah, that’s you.

– MUTE EARLY, MUTE OFTEN: Ever wanted to squelch that guy blasting techno in the pre-game lobby? Now you can! Easy peezy, lemon squeezy.

No specific date in March has been set for the DLC. But be ready to take advantage of the digital freebies when they arrive. Free DLC doesn’t come around often, and I have a feeling after March there’s going to be loads more that you’re gonna have to pay for.
