There hasn’t been a new “RoboCop” game since the release of the video game tie-in for the movie remake starring Joel Kinnaman, Abbie Cornish, Michael K. Williams, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and others in 2014. However, developer Teyon and publisher Nacon have been working on a new title that drops on Thursday, Nov. 2.
Now available for pre-order for $59.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target, “RoboCop: Rogue City” for PS5 and Xbox Series X is a first-person shooter that has storylines connected to the original trilogy from the late ’80s and early ’90s. In fact, it features actor Peter Weller reprising his role as officer Alex Murphy a.k.a. RoboCop.
Set in Old Detroit between “RoboCop 2” and “RoboCop 3,” the game follows RoboCop and his partner Anne Lewis clearing the city of criminals, as they take on the Torch Heads, a violent gang involved in the Nuke drug trade. The pair also must investigate a mysterious crime boss called “The New Guy” and the origins of Project Afterlife. Meanwhile, RoboCop has to give out parking tickets and moving violations whenever they occur.
If you pre-order the game, you’ll get the Vanguard Pack to go along with “RoboCop: Rogue City.” It includes various upgrades that are already unlocked, such as Robo’s Blue Armour Cosmetic, Pitch Black Auto-9 Weapon and more.
The game was first announced in July 2021 with a release set for June 2023. But, it was delayed and pushed back to November. In addition, Teyon and Nacon planned for “RoboCop: Rogue City” to be playable on the Nintendo Switch set for sometime in 2024. Nevertheless, the Nintendo release was cancelled altogether in Oct. 2023.
