RoboCop: Rogue City is a highly anticipated game, especially by the most nostalgic, that is to say, those of us who saw the first of the films in the saga at the time, and even more so for those of us who got into the role of this futuristic law enforcement officer in the 1988 game and who reached the main platforms of the moment ( Spectrum, Amstrad, MSX, Atari, etc.). As I commented a while ago with a work buddy, it is well known that nostalgia predisposes us to take the wallet out of our pocket, and that they know how to take advantage of this weakness.
However, I am not saying that it is long awaited just because of the desire to play it, it also counts in this that its launch has been delayed, since until now it was scheduled for June, but we have learned that it is delayed until September. This is good or bad? The opinion depends on each one, but personally I have learned to prefer as many delays as necessary for the games to be published in conditions, than a premature and disastrous launch. Thus, I am confident that the successive delays of RoboCop: Rogue City will translate into a well-finished product when it hits the market.
Be that as it may, and as a developer and editor they know that the community is very aware of this future release, they have decided to share a teaser with about two minutes of gameplay RoboCop: Rogue Citya video that, as you can see below, looks really promising:
This new gameplay of RoboCop: Rogue City confirms something that we already knew previously, and that is that the game will take us to the original franchise, not the remake released in 2003 and which also had its own game. Thus, we see Alex Murphy walking the streets of a particularly degraded Detroit (at this point, the Paul Verhoeven film released in 1987 turned out to be most premonitory), with a HUD that reproduces, quite adequately, that of the original movie.
Visually it looks quite promising., and although this is a fairly calculated selection of scenes, first impressions are quite positive. Let us remember that it is a shooter in first person, which is why this teaser is especially interesting, as it shows us the shooting mechanics that we will find in the game, together with the information that is displayed in the viewfinder.
RoboCop: Rogue City will hit stores for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S in September, barring any further delays. We hope the wait is worth it.
