Robocop: Rogue City has a new trailer, showing the game in action.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Robocop: Rogue City has been delayed until September, much later than its original June release window. The trailer and the delay was revealed at publisher Nacon’s recent Nacon Connect.
Going by the trailer – and trailers can be misleading – the game looks as it could be fun. Unlike some previous Robocop games you’re not jumping around all over the place. Also, it seems like Robo can take a fair amount of damage, which has always been his big advantage.
There’s also slomo which, given that Robocop can precisely calculate ricochets in his head, makes sense. He may not be fast on his feet but a computer’s wired into his brain. That’s a tiny consolation for dying horribly and being shoehorned into a tin can.
However, we’re not exactly struck by the voice acting. Peter Weller, who played the characer in the first two movies, does provide the voice. But it sounds a little underwhelming, even by Robocop’s normal standards.
Still, with the game now coming in September, there’s plenty of time to spruce things up, voice-acting included. You can watch the age-restricted trailer here, and pick Robocop: Rogue City up on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S this September 2023.
