Crime Boss Game: The annual Game Awards ceremony in 2022 was a strong one for new IP announcements. Hellboy Web of Wyrd, a horror game with Silent Hill-like characteristics, Post Trauma, a game that strongly recalled people of the BioShock series, and many other games made their debut during the event.
The release of Crime Boss: Rockay City, a heist-themed game by indie Czech developer Ingame Studios, attracted a lot of interest.
The voice cast of Crime Boss features a variety of well-known Hollywood actors, several of whom also contributed motion capture for the game, allowing the glamorous heist title to utilize their likenesses.
Among the performers scheduled to appear in the 2023 film is Michael Madson from Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, Danny Trejo from Machete, rapper Vanilla Ice, and action legend Chuck Norris.
The actor Norris, who made an appearance at the very end of the trailer, is portraying an anonymous character who might be Norris. Fans of the Grand Theft Auto and Payday series were immediately reminded of them by Crime Boss: Rockay City’s look.
The gameplay will center on pulling off several action-packed heists with plenty of cinematic style and flair in the game’s titular Rockay City, which appears to be inspired by Miami in the 1990s.
Although Crime Boss is Ingame Studios’ first significant game, the company’s workforce is made up of several industry veterans, including people who have previously worked on the Kingdom Come and Mafia series.
Currently, Crime Boss: Rockay City is slated to launch for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S on March 28, 2023. The game will only be made available on PC through Epic Games’ Epic Games Store. The Epic Games Store currently offers a pre-order discount for the game that will last until December 12.
The exciting news was made at the Game Awards. In addition to Rockay City and the other new IPs unveiled, spectators got to see a sneak glimpse of Hades 2, fresh Star Wars Jedi: Survivor gameplay, and fresh Street Fighter 6 playable characters.
