Games with Gold: Gotham City Impostors

Here’s the deal: When you sign up for Xbox Live Gold, you get free access to Games with Gold on Xbox 360 and Xbox One, which means at least one new, free game every two weeks. Yep, that’s right: If you’re an Xbox Live Gold subscriber, you don’t have to do a thing, and you get free games. So, what are you waiting for? Here’s a closer look at the latest Games with Gold title for Xbox 360!

The Caped Crusader may never use guns, but in “
Gotham City Impostors,” you can use a firearm while dressed like Batman – and shoot at people dressed up like the Joker! It’s a team-based online Bat-stravaganza for up to 12 people, featuring insane first-person shooting action. It’s also available tomorrow for free with your Xbox Live Gold membership.

Two teams – one of would-be Batmen and the other of wannabe Clown Princes of Crime – face off against each other in one of four game modes: Psych Warfare, Fumigation, Bounty Hunter, and Team Deathmatch, each with its own unique hook.

In Psych Warfare, for example, both teams are trying to bring a battery back to their respective bases and keep it hooked up to a mind-control machine long enough for it to brainwash the other team. Fumigation is a point-control mode, in which the teams must capture and hold three contested “gasblaster” points. In Bounty Hunter, players drop coins when they die; pick up enough coins from dead enemy players, and your team wins… but you can pick up your own dead teammates’ coins to deny points to the other team, as well. And finally, Team Deathmatch involves… well, shooting the other guys until they’re dead.

“Gotham City Impostors”
 is known for its many gadgets, including glider wings, grappling hooks, roller-skate sneakers, PVC-pipe rocket launchers, jack-in-the-box-grenades, dynamite bundles, and a whole lot more. Gadgets often have specific functions and affect play in specific ways, so players can mess around with the game’s Challenge Mode by themselves if they want to, so that they can master these gadgets and earn experience before heading online to challenge real opponents.

Another key aspect of “
Gotham City Impostors” is its character customization options. Players can choose costumes, the size of their character’s model, weapons, and a variety of other characteristics – so that no game of “Gotham City Impostors” ever feels like a bunch of carbon-copy soldiers just running amok.

The pace of gameplay is just as raucous as the tone would suggest, with bullets (and limbs) flying everywhere, and plenty of team-based mayhem to be enjoyed for gamers of all levels. So what are you waiting for? Sign onto Xbox Live, get that Gold subscription (if you don’t already have one), and snag this totally awesome (and totally free) game!
