The 1UP article is short and sweet, so I'll quote it in full, after the jump. Essentially, Steam activation codes have gone out to invited beta testers. This is a private beta, so testers cannot discuss their experiences with the public unfortunately and it all goes live on October 5. Specs seem quite reasonable too, so the game should play quite smoothly on midrange hardware. This looks like a cool game worth waiting for, so check out the video.


Beta testers have just been informed by email the schedule for the upcoming PC beta of Gotham City Impostors.

Steam codes have been emailed out to those who were accepted today, and although the client can be downloaded now, the beta itself won't begin until next week -- and even then, it will only be available at select times.

The beta will be playable nightly beginning Wednesday, October 5. It'll last only until October 9, and is playable from 7PM - 12AM Eastern for those five days. As it's a closed beta, testers won't be free to share information about the game.

Once the beta has officially begun, testers will need to open the game to get a CD key that will then need to be redeemed after logging into Games for Windows Live.

Gotham City Impostors is a downloadable, multiplayer first-person shooter set in the Batman universe. It was first announced in May and is being developed by Monolith Productions, the developer of the first two FEAR games, No One Lives Forever 1 and 2, and both Condemned games. It's not expected out until early next year.

As the beta is only on PC, you'll need to make sure your computer is up to snuff. Below are the minimum and recommended system specifications.

Minimum specs:

Dual Core CPU 2.5GHz or higher (Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD equivalent)
1.5GB RAM
6GB HDD
256MB DX9 SM3+ Video Card (GeForce 8600 or ATI X1800 or better)
DX9 compatible Sound Controller
Windows XP, Vista, 7 with latest updates
Broadband 64KB/s

Recommended specs:

Quad Core CPU 2GHz or higher (Intel Core 2 Quad or AMD equivalent)
2GB RAM
6GB HDD
512MB DX9 High-Performance SM3+ Video Card (GeForce 8800 or ATI X1900 or better)
DX9 compatible Sound Controller
Windows XP, Vista, 7 with latest updates
Broadband 1MB/s

There are a lot of fresh elements but at the same time quite a few things borrowed from TF2...I guess we'll have to wait and see :)

Wikipedia seems to think it uses the Lithtech Jupiter EX engine which is quite old(and prone to bugs and hacks). Some other games with that engine incude:

F.E.A.R. by Monolith Productions (2005)
Condemned: Criminal Origins by Monolith Productions (2005)

It is strictly an online game from the sounds of it so I'm sure they worked on the security aspects of it a lot.

I like the look of the outrageous-looking avatars in it. I'll bet we could get a thriving TPU club going based around this game. :D

But the top 5 games at least in that list kicked ass and lets face it Condemned is like Desert Island on steroids. So maybe there is a chance i will like this one. All so FEAR 1 was better than all the rest.

I'l remember your lack of faith ...
I don't understand that at all? :confused:

I had to upload the picture with a different filename, because it clashed with one from a different article, causing the picture funny you saw.

I was kidding about the fact you didn't thank me for being first to notice the picture being wrong :(
