Back to serve and protect, RoboCop: Rogue City is out today

Murphy’s back, in RoboCop: Rogue City, a game sporting a whole new story that ties into the first two RoboCop films.

Dead or alive, you’re coming with me

Could this one be a bit of a sleeper? While we’ve yet to play it, we’ve only heard good things about RoboCop: Rogue City, whose launch is nestled in between a series of blockbuster games in this Holiday 2023. For fans of the legendary 80s movie series though, this is one of those marquee releases.

A first-person shooter, NACON and developer Teyon’s newest takes place between RoboCop 1 and 2, and stars Peter Weller himself as officer Alex Murphy/RoboCop. Robo is of course paired with his partner Anne Lewis, and fans can even look for the likes of Sergeant Warren Reed and the menacing robot ED-209.

As far as gameplay, the title features some lite-RPG elements like upgrades for Robo, and a progression system. But don’t worry, this isn’t a role-playing game, and along with RoboCop’s pure cyborg power, there’s also plenty of gunplay. The trusty Auto-9 is far from the only hardware that Murphy can wield however, as fans can expect a total of 20 weapons to lay siege to the villains of Old Detroit with.

Here’s a look at it in action:

The city of Detroit has been hit by a series of crimes, and a new enemy is rising and threatening public order. RoboCop blasts into action, investigating a shady project, with the game providing a big comeback for iconic characters, such as your faithful partner, Anne Lewis, Sergeant Warren Reed and ED-209, RoboCop’s robot rival.

NACON press release

Armor-up and get that squad car rolling, RoboCop: Rogue City is out now for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (via Steam and Epic).
