Publisher Nacon announced some new games today, among them RoboCop: Rogue Cityan upcoming FPS starring a famous cyborg police officer from the 80s, and Terminator Survival ProjectA game of survival set in that bleak universe, and the future ruled by the machine.
let’s talk Robocop First: intended for both PC and consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X | S), it is developed by Teyon, the studio responsible for Terminator: Resistance (I feel a pattern here). Here is the pitch:
Welcome to Detroit. Crime is rampant, and the city is on the brink of ruin. As things descend further into chaos, you are the answer, Cyborg Officer, RoboCop. And it wouldn’t look right without Peter Wheeler reprising the role. Be a Robocop in June 2023! Coming to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S and PC.
Robocop It is a classic sci-fi action adventure and one of the most popular Hollywood films of all time. NACON and Teyon are working with MGM to develop an original RoboCop game experience faithful to the genes of the franchise, while immersing players in an original story that enables them to play as RoboCop itself. In RoboCop, when good cop Alex Murphy is mortally wounded by ruthless criminals, inventive doctors can reassemble him once more as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called “RoboCop”.
In some good news for fans of the original movies, the Alex Murphy you’ll play will not only look like the actor Peter Wheeler – who “agreed to be a model for the game’s hero” – but will feature voice acting as well, meaning you get the most authentic “dead or alive, come on.” with me” that you can get.
This is the game’s trailer, which not only features the gameplay – I love the implementation of the original movie’s targeted pin-up visuals – but also shows that this feels like a linear shooter genre, which we simply don’t get enough of. This day and age.
Also announced was Terminator: Project Survivalwhich I’ll spend less time on since it only showed a short trailer and said it would “come to computers and consoles in the far future.”
