Warner Bros. Interactive following the ludicrously popular Team Fortress 2 into free to play territory: that's right, Gotham City Imposters is now F2P. It also appears that they aren't nickel-and-diming players or offering a stripped down version; as long as you have Steam you get the game and all its DLC. I was always curious about this game so I think I'll give it a spin, although I'm interested to see how WB Interactive monetizes this now.
