A live-action trailer has been released for the video game RoboCop: Rogue City, which will be available to play this week
The first-person-shooter video game RoboCop: Rogue City, which features the return of Peter Weller as the iconic hero RoboCop, is set to be released for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store this Thursday, November 2nd. To remind us the game is right around the corner, a new trailer has arrived online – but this one only features a brief glimpse of the game. Instead, it’s mostly a live-action short in which we see RoboCop out on patrol. You can watch this live-action trailer in the embed above.
Peter Weller provides the voice of RoboCop in the video game, but of course they didn’t make the 76-year-old put on a costume or sit in the makeup chair for the live-action trailer.
RoboCop: Rogue City was developed by Teyon, the company that was behind Terminator: Resistance and Rambo: The Video Game. It has been said that the game will “combine first-person shooter gameplay with exploration of Detroit and multiple-choice dialogue”. The game has the following synopsis: Crime runs rampant as Detroit lies on the edge of ruin, with people fighting for scraps as others live extravagant lives of luxury. Control of the Detroit Police Department is given to the Omni Consumer Products corporation in an attempt to restore order. You are that solution: a cyborg tasked with protecting the city.
If the trailer above left you wanting to see more of this video game, IGN has you covered. They have released a video that shows off 16 minutes of RoboCop: Rogue City gameplay, and you can check that one out at the bottom of this article.
Peter Weller played the title character in the 1987 classic RoboCop and reprised the role for the 1990 sequel RoboCop 2. But due to scheduling issues, he missed out on 1993’s RoboCop 3 and was replaced by Robert Burke. In the thirty-plus years since RoboCop 2, Weller did have the opportunity to provide the character’s voice for a Family Guy video game and the Mortal Kombat 11 video game.
