Crime Boss: Rockay City is set to come to PC via the Epic store and is available to pre-order right now. It will also launch on PlayStation and Xbox. So, what is the game about? First, take a look at the trailer, which is can be seen below.
First and foremost, the cast list is impressive, as it includes more than Michael Madsen. Michael Rooker, Kim Basinger, Danny Trejo, Vanilla Ice, Danny Glover, and the legendary Chuck Norris also make an appearance. If we look at the Xbox store listing we see the description reads.
Rockay City. A thriving metropolis with excitement buzzing from the sandy bay to the towering skyscrapers. But beyond the glamour, there is a fierce turf war raging on…
After the demise of the previous crime boss, there’s an open vacancy for a new King of Rockay City – but it isn’t just you who is fighting for the throne. Choose your crew based on their skills and expertise, and execute daring missions with the hopes of walking away with the cash, the turf and, ultimately, the crown.
Make Sure You’re Connected Rockay City doesn’t just look and feel like the 90s, you’ll find a few familiar faces there too. From the charismatic Travis Baker (Michael Madsen) and his team of planners and handlers (Michael Rooker, Kim Basinger, Danny Glover and Damion Poitier), to rival gang bosses (Danny Trejo and Vanilla Ice) and the righteous Sheriff Norris (Chuck Norris): it’s not what you know, but who you know.
Keep Your Friends Close Stealing everything from cash and drugs, through to priceless artifacts is more fun with accomplices. Jump into the PVE co-op multiplayer and take on thrilling hits and heists with up to four players. Fail and you leave empty handed, but succeed and you’ll find yourself richly rewarded.
And Your Enemies Closer
