Hope you all signed up for the closed beta of Gotham City Impostors! It's starting Wednesday, October 5 and will be playable during evenings until October 9. Though I suppose if you're in, you would have gotten an email by now, so go check your inbox.

Reactions to the game have been surprisingly positive given the beloved setting and Monolith's unexpected -- if rather fitting for multiplayer -- premise. There's a lock on what testers will be able to say publicly about the game, which tells me this is more of an actual beta than a marketing tool. One can only hope.

The PC requirements have also come out alongside beta instructions, although there's not a whole lot to say there. Fairly standard stuff. With a handful of high-priority, hardware-intensive games approaching soon, now might not be a bad time to start asking more of gamers' machines.

  • 1.5GB RAM
