IGN has released 10 minutes of new 4K gameplay footage for RoboCop: Rogue City, Teyon’s new Unreal Engine 5 FPS for players wanting to larp as Alex Murphy. The footage suggests that players will be able to explore Metro West, the precinct where RoboCop was stationed with “baby food” in the original 1984 film, as well as the appearance of other key RoboCop characters, including Murphy’s partner, Anne Lewis, who died in RoboCop 3. (RoboCop: Rogue City takes place between the second and third films.) Other features of RoboCop: Rogue City include scanning the environment for clues, upgradeable skill branches (e.g., Deduction, Engineering, and Psychology), and an Auto 9 that features unlimited ammo, although players have the option of picking up and using other weapons for a “limited” time.

From an IGN feature:

RoboCop starts with a few base abilities, including night vision, a shockwave that mimics a flashbang, and the option to temporarily slow down time to clear a room quickly. Aiming down sights scans the surroundings to highlight nearby enemies to make them easier to spot, and he can also move faster, shifting from a slow, deliberate stomp to a heavy brisk walk.

RoboCop’s potent primary weapon, the Auto 9, has its own tab of upgrades that are unlocked throughout the game’s 20-30 hour campaign […]. Players can also pick up firearms dropped by the city’s lawbreakers and use them for a limited time. However, I typically stuck with the Auto 9 due to its reliability and unlimited ammo.

One side quest had me handling complaints at the police station, where I had the chance to decide whether to side with the individual or issue a ticket. In situations where things can turn violent, players will sometimes have the option to take a pacifist approach. There’s certainly room for empathy in your interactions with the people of Detroit, and keeping them happy will increase your public trust score.
