Rockay City is a star-studded co-op first-person shooter in March for PC, and later for consoles

At The Game Awards 2022, publisher 505 Games unveiled Crime Boss: Rockay City, a star-studded co-op first-person shooter set to be released on March 28, 2023 for PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive. The console versions will be released later next year. Pre-orders for the PC version are already open with a massive 40% discount valid until 4pm BST on December 10th. After that time, the pre-order discount will drop to 20% until the game is released.

Crime Boss: Rockay City is being developed by Brno-based developer INGAME STUDIOSs. It’s the first time we’ve heard of them, though, according to the studio’s website, it’s a team of over 70 veterans who’ve worked on titles like Vietcong, Hidden & Dangerous 2, the Mafia series, Arma, Kingdom Come Deliverance, and Dead Trigger, Shadowguns, UFO, Silent Hill Series: Rainfall, Cold War, and Animation.

The game takes place in the 90’s. Rockay City is a fictional city in Florida where protagonist Travis Baker attempts to become the next crime lord in the city after the demise of the previous one. Travis Baker plays Michael Madsen, who is joined by a cast of ’90s stars like Kim Basinger, Chuck Norris, Danny Trejo, Michael Rooker, Danny Glover, Damion Potter and Vanilla Ice.

Basinger, Rooker, Poeter and Glover are on Team Baker, while Trejo and Vanilla Ice will be rival mob bosses and Chuck Norris will be, obviously, the righteous sheriff of Rockay City.

Neil Raleigh, President of 505 Games, said in a statement:

The sheer amount of talent involved in front of the camera and behind the development of Crime Boss: Rockay City is very exciting to be a part of. We are excited to bring this exceptional organized crime game to players all over the world.

In terms of gameplay, the press release mentions turf wars, heists, and crazy side stories. Crime Boss: Rockay City is said to feature a single-player campaign and co-op multiplayer PvE in which up to four players will band together to perform “exciting hits and heists”.

Crime Boss: Rockay City was teased last week by a short video in which Michael Madsen himself appeared at the supposed reception for The Game Awards, dropping host Geoff Keighley’s ‘lost wallet’ after declaring himself his number one fan. The wallet included a QR code that fans sent to check out the game’s teaser website.
