Two new Infinite Crisis champions profiled: Gaslight Batman & Doomsday
Warner Bros. has introduced two new champions in its upcoming multiplayer online battle arena Infinite Crisis. So far we've met three of the playable DC Comics characters -- Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Nightmare Batman -- which have been reimagined for the twisted DC Multiverse. Today we will take a look at two more: Gaslight Batman and Doomsday. Below are brief descriptions along with a champion spotlight video.
"With the murder of his parents unsolved, the adult Bruce Wayne uncovered a vast conspiracy responsible for their deaths and many others. He brought the conspirators to justice by taking on the mantle of Batman, but continues his lifelong quest to protect the citizens of Gotham."
Gaslight Batman uses sonic weapons to strike from the shadows. Althoug he relies prmarily on his trusty sonic pistols to deal the majority of his damage, his powers still pack a punch as well as offering utility to catch or escape his enemies.
"Repeatedly slaughtered and revived by a twisted scientist's experiment to create a weapon capable of killing whole worlds, Doomsday is a living weapon of adaptable mass destruction."
Doomsday is more of a tank character, relying on getting into an opponent's face and staying there until one of them dies.
Infinite Crisis is scheduled for release on PC in 2013. Pricing has not yet been announced, but I assume it will follow closely to the Guardians of Middle-earth business model.
