In a recent interview, Lucas Myers of Monolith Productions has said that Gotham City Impostors will allow players to kit out their own custom characters instead of being given pre-set classes. When asked how the game compares with its insanely popular rival-to-be, Team Fortress 2, Myers verified that characters are made up from several different components, including their visual aesthetic, weapons and abilities, more of which will become available as players level up.
So, if you want to take the healing tool, and you want the bazooka, and you want the skinny body type you can put all of that together… It’s completely up to the player how they want to make their class.
Myers also touched on one of GCI’s unique gameplay elements, namely the movement abilities. Joker and Batman wannabes of Gotham City not only have an arsenal of destructive weaponry in tow, they can also use equipment such as grappling hooks, wings, roller skates and smoke bombs allowing them to traverse battlefields in a more inventive fashion.
Be sure to look out for Gotham City Impostors when it launches later this year for PlayStation Network, Xbox Live and PC.
