New RoboCop FPS going for M rating, wants to be as violent as the movies

New RoboCop FPS going for M rating, wants to be as violent as the movies

RoboCop: Rogue City is aiming for an M rating as it wants to be as violent as the movies.

In case you’d forgotten, we’re finally getting RoboCop: Rogue City this year. It can be difficult to keep track of what’s coming in the latter half of the year amidst endless conversations about Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Starfield, but there are plenty of other gems on the way. Well, at least we’re hoping they’ll be gems.

RoboCop: Rogue City is on the way from developer Teyon and publisher Nacon. It’s set to release in September but we don’t yet have a precise date. September is shaping up to be a busy month. It’ll also see the release of Starfield and Mortal Kombat 1. Rogue City is due to be a love letter to the original RoboCop movie trilogy, with an original story inspired by all three films. Back in March, we got our first look at the brutal gameplay and now, it’s been unveiled that the game is aiming for a M rating.

Take a look at RoboCop: Rogue City in action below.

In an interview with ComicBook, game director Piotr Łatocha revealed that while RoboCop: Rogue City didn’t yet have an age rating, the team were hoping to push the limits and garner a Mature rating. He explained that anything less would “piss off the fans”.

“This was one of the first design choices when we talk about the game in the RoboCop world," Łatocha said. "Based on the first films, we were sure that we wanted to not be limited by the Teen rating or something like that. We knew that it was going to piss off the fans immediately if they learned that we had to take those trade-offs."

"We definitely wanted to make a Mature game, but what we really wanted was to portray the kind of violence from the films, that you're not limited with that. But I don't think we needed to do any special cuts. That's the good thing. What we really wanted to show in the game might [earn] the rating that we're probably going to get. It's 18, basically. It's enough to show what we wanted." I do wonder if we’ll get a release date revealed at this week’s Summer Game Fest.
