Third free update busts loose for star-studded shooter Crime Boss: Rockay City

Improvements galore, plus new scenarios, character progression and lots more are included in the fresh update for Rockay City.

Welcome back

Crime Boss: Rockay City is notable for its cast alone, which includes the likes of Danny Glover, Michael Madsen, and Chuck freakin’ Norris. But past that Hollywood cache, the title also serves up a tongue-in-cheek crime story, playing out via roguelite, FPS action.

Released earlier this year, it’s also been on the receiving end of some major post-launch support. Today brings the latest round of that, with free update #3. These aren’t just patches either, as this latest delivery brings loads of new content to the title.

Three new missions arrive with the Gas Station, Car Dealer, and Truck Convoy, and all of them are playable in either the game’s campaign or Crime Time modes. On top of that, there’ve also been updates to the game’s stealth play, the ability to randomize missions, new multiplayer options, and a big update to character progression.

Here’s your rundown:

  • New Scenarios and Environments – Take on the Gas Station, Car Dealer, and Truck Convoy missions, which appear in both the campaign and Crime Time modes.
  • Character Persistency – Progression through individual character missions now persists through campaign runs. A unique character dying in their character mission no longer resets the plotline, now resuming in the next campaign run after the last successful character mission instead. The plotline only resets when the unique character dies through regular means and not in their character mission.  
  • Improved Stealth Gameplay and Rebalancing – Employ stronger stealth takedowns, with improved enemy AI perceptions and reactions. INGAME STUDIOS also rebalanced the campaign economy, silencers, the “New Blood” Urban Legend mission chain, and more.
  • Shuffle Mission Chains Mode in Crime Time – Play missions in a new way, with randomized mission chains in three challenging difficulty tiers. Full completion of these chains offers greater respect points and awards.
  • Kick, Mute, and Examine Profiles in Multiplayer – While specific details on functionality depends on the platform, hosts can now kick ne’er-do-wells from their games. We’re criminals, not monsters.

Crime Boss: Rockay City is out now for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Epic).
