Cooperative FPS Crime Boss: Rockay City got a new gameplay trailer, and it's just fine. Serviceable but kind of flat, which is a shame because the cutscenes themselves look like they could tell a schlocky crime caper and have the star power to back it up.
The action we do see involves some gunplay and reclaiming your lost pills, but it's fairly standard shooter fare you've probably engaged in countless times before. The inclusion of co-op could be critical here, as this type of gameplay is always enhanced by having a friend watch your back, but the jury is still out on how this one shapes up.
What do you think of Crime Boss: Rockay City? Have we got a bee in our bonnet, or are we missing something here? Make your way to the drop spot in the comments section below.
Missed opportunity getting all these names involved and setting a theme like this only to waste it on gameplay like this
@roe thats how it usually is nowadays
This should have been a third person gta style game.
Why is no other developer trying to create the next gta.
Forget saints Row that had its chance many years ago but then went all weird.
I think they've got a great cast, story and setting but unfortunately they're making completely the wrong game to go along with it.
Can I just buy the cutscenes,
@Bagwag82 That game should be the Getaway Reboot, would love this game remade with Sony story telling qualities, would be an EPIC.
COME ON SONY GIVE US THE GETAWAY ALREADY
Mediocre from the first look. Since release is in a few weeks, I don't expect any changes. Literally looks like a mobile game
@Bagwag82 ever heard of lack of talent and incompetence?
@dallow_prime id be up for a Getaway reboot but not with this cast XD keep it british with Statam, Hardy etc
Tho a Getaway style game set in miami id get behind 100%
@dallow_prime then they would just make it 80% movie 20% video game
So judging by the thumbnail for the article it looks like they're trying to evoke GTA by way of Red Dead.
Not very subtle. What studio makes this again, Mockstar?
Who are the cutscenes even for? It's a basic, repetitive coop shooter. Just seems pointless for that game.
And the title just plain winds me up 😅 I don't know why, it just sounds so stupid.
Never saw a more stupid AI lol.
@dallow_prime that would be awesome. Danny dyer in as one of the main character's mates, get vinnie Jones as the crime boss, with Jason statham as his enforcer. Perfect for the cheesy melodrama of a Getaway reboot
So am I supposed to pretend payday the game doesn't exist? So far this is just a clone with decent graphics. There was a charm about payday that keeps you coming back and replaying those missions. From this short gameplay, this feels empty.
This is releasing episodically? Man, this better be cheap or I’ll have to pass until it’s on sale because gameplay looks very basic.
@Cutmastavictory Pay Day 3 was recently announced too, this game will be shadowed by similar games that do co-op FPS much better.
I have lost all interest now, gameplay looks really bad.
I want to like this game. Would love something that can fill the gap till GTA 6. Two days after release and all my questions will be answered.
@Bagwag82 Exactly my thoughts watching this, I liked when there were loads of 'GTA clones' back in the PS2/360 era. Now, despite a large gap in the market with it being so long since GTA V, there's barely any. Not all of them were great back then but I still got quite a bit of fun from them. Open world games seem to have gone in a different direction in terms of setting etc. How's about a sequel to Sleeping Dogs? I thought that was a genuinely great game, loved it.
