The latest addition to the roster of Infinite Crisis is Gaslight Joker, yet another Batman villain. This multiverse character is a hardcore beefcake, capable of absorbing ridiculous amounts of damage. That’s a good attribute to have, as Gaslight Joker loses health each time he uses an ability. His passive replaces it as the character picks up credits.
Playing a bit like Zac of League of Legends fame, Batman’s arch nemesis isn’t a one-trick pony. Gaslight Joker features many support capabilities, including a healing debuff and fear. In addition, the trickster can be built to produce a substantial amount of damage in his own right.
The reveal trailer after the cut markets Gaslight Joker as a high sustain tank. Yet one can easily see that Gaslight Joker can seemingly be built in a variety of ways, depending on need. Now if only I could get in the closed beta to see if my suspicions are correct.
In addition to the entry of a select few to early testing, Turbine and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment unveiled the latest god trailer. Sticking with the Dark Knight universe, the latest spotlight highlights none other than the Joker. The criminal mastermind is a unique ranged physical character with high sustainability thanks to lifesteal and support abilities. Fragile and powerful, he plays best at mid range ready to attack or turn tail at a moment’s notice.
There are boundless enemies and heroes yet to be revealed. Stay tuned to Lore Hound for all the latest on Infinite Crisis.
The reveals just keeps coming for Infinite Crisis. Just a scant few days after the reveal of the multitude of Wonder Womens to be made available in the multiverse Turbine Entertainment returns to the universe of Batman to reveal a pair of his leading ladies. Your standard Poison Ivy and Gaslight Catwomen will be joining the roster of the upcoming F2P DC Comics MOBA.
Poison Ivy is a hybrid character capable of providing dedicated support through healing and speed buffs to allies and debuffs to foes, or a vicious AoE damage dealer capable of keeping target’s within her pain range. The former thief from steampunk Gotham, Gastlight Catwoman is a melee assassin that relies on stealth. She may sound a lot like Nightmare Batman, but the feline friend has her own twist.
Past the cut are the trailers for the two loveliest ladies of the Batman universe. Continue Reading

To celebrate the super fast closed beta testing phase of Infinite Crisis, Turbine Entertainment released that dandy of a picture. In it, you’re viewing the multitude of Wonder Womens present in the multiverse of the Infinite Crisis saga.
Infinite Crisis, one of the greatest massive story arcs in the DC universe is being retooled. Retooled, perhaps not the correct word. Let’s go with expanded. Announced today, Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment are entering the expanding massive online battle arena genre with a Turbine-developed title.
Why the announcement wasn’t made during this weekend’s PAX East 2013, which is held in Turbine’s home turf of Boston, is beyond us but the free-to-play PC has us intrigued. Featuring twisted incarnations of the universe’s favorite characters, including Nightmare Batman and Gaslight Catwoman, and safer versions like The Flash, the title will pit famous heroes and villains against each other sometime in 2013.
“The Turbine team is very excited to reveal Infinite Crisis to the world and extend the MOBA genre with new features,” said Jeffrey Steefel, Executive Producer, Turbine. “We are utilizing years of experience in the online game space to deliver innovations to the MOBA genre with a game that features fast-paced action, a major story arc, destructible environments, catastrophic events and a deep roster of iconic DC Comics characters.”
Hit the jump for the official reveal trailer and a tidy collection of screenshots.
Discussion: How important is character customization? Is it enough to have it only at the beginning, or do we need more options throughout our careers (armor dyes, secondary armor sets, character appearances changes like in Fable II, etc.)?
