Publisher Nacon today announced several new games, and among them Robocop: Rogue Cityan upcoming first-person shooter featuring the famous cyborg cop from the 1980s, and Terminator Survival Projecta survival game set in the dark, machine-controlled future of this universe.
Let’s talk Robocop first: designed for both PC and consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S), it is being developed by Teyon, the studio responsible for Terminator: Resistance (I sense a pattern here.) Here is the field:
Welcome to Detroit; crime is rampant, the city is on the brink of ruin. As everything descends into chaos, you are the solution, the cyborg officer, RoboCop. And it would be wrong if Peter Weller did not reprise this role. Become a RoboCop in June 2023! Out on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
Robocop is a classic sci-fi action adventure and one of the most iconic Hollywood movie franchises of all time. NACON and Teyon are working with MGM to create an authentic RoboCop game that lives up to the franchise’s DNA while immersing players in an original story that lets them play as RoboCop himself. In the movie RoboCop, when good cop Alex Murphy is mortally wounded by ruthless criminals, innovative doctors can piece him together as an unstoppable cyborg crime-fighter called “RoboCop”.
There’s some good news for fans of the original films: Alex Murphy, who you’ll be playing, will not only look like actor Peter Weller, who “agreed to be the model for the game’s protagonist”, but will also be showing off his voice acting. , which means you get the most authentic “dead or alive, you come with me” you can get.
Here’s a trailer for the game that not only shows the gameplay – I love the original film’s implementation of visual target lock – but also shows it feels like a linear single-player shooter that we just don’t get enough of in this day and age.
It was also announced Terminator: Project Survivalwhich I’ll spend a lot less time on as they only showed a brief teaser trailer and said it will “come to PC and consoles in the distant future”.
