Monolith announced this morning, during PAX Prime, that their excellent first-person shooter, Gotham City Impostors, is going free to play! This won't come as a surprise for PlayStation Plus subscribers, who have had free access to the game for around a month now but PC players who have been on the fence, can now grab the game for free on Steam.
If you haven't played Gotham City Impostors, we can't recommend it enough. This is a shooter that has gone largely unnoticed by the community at large and it's a shame, because the mechanics are solid and the gameplay is actually unique. Monolith is doing something that virtually no other developer has the courage to do, which is innovate and introduce truly new concepts and mechanics.
The premise of the game is that Gotham City has been overrun with vigilante heroes and criminals, modeling themselves after The Joker and Batman. These two factions are battling it out for power in Gotham City, using an amazing arsenal of homebrewed weaponry. The weapons in Gotham City Impostors are some of the most original and enjoyable that we've used in a first-person shooter.
