Lesquin, 21 November 2023 – On 2 November.
An iconic pop culture hero, the part-man, part-machine, all cop, made his big comeback in a dedicated video game with “RoboCop: Rogue City”.
Earning 92% positive reviews on the Steam platform, the game won over 435,000 players in the space of 2 weeks, and racked up 2.7 million active game sessions.
The game studio Teyon and publisher NACON, along with collaborator Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), are pleased to celebrate its success by sharing a new trailer highlighting the accolades received by the game.
Alain FALC, CEO of NACON had this to say about its success:
“RoboCop: Rogue City has exceeded our expectations, and achieved a genuine feat as far as NACON is concerned. We are really proud to have been able to work with the studio Teyon on this game created by and for RoboCop die-hards. We would also like to thank MGM for the trust they placed in us throughout this collaboration, as well as all the players who have contributed to making this release such a great success.”
RoboCop: Rogue City immerses the player in Old Detroit, a while after the events of the second film. In this new first-person adventure, the player must restore law and order to a city plunged into chaos in the wake of the arrival of a new crime lord.
The gameplay alternates between explosive battles, investigations in the field and side quests, in which the player will decide citizens’ fates, thereby affecting the game progression.
Out of their desire to pay tribute to the franchise, the Teyon team have also left numerous references to the RoboCop world for players to discover, such as the iconic locations, weapons and characters, including the actor Peter Weller, who returns to duty as the face and voice of the cyborg cop in RoboCop: Rogue City.
RoboCop: Rogue City is the creation of the development studio Teyon and video game publisher NACON in collaboration with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) pursuant to a licence from Amazon MGM Studios Consumer Products Licensing.
RoboCop: Rogue City is available on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, Steam and Epic Games Store.
