Acting as a sequel that seamlessly merges with the movie franchise, players step into the metallic boots of the iconic cyborg law enforcer, patrolling the crime-ridden streets of a futuristic Detroit. From battling gangs to issuing parking citations, RoboCop: Rogue City provides a unique perspective into the life of Alex J. Murphy, the fallen Detroit cop resurrected as the powerful RoboCop. Despite facing ongoing threats from both the city's criminal underworld and the corporate domain of Omni Consumer Products (OCP), RoboCop remains unwavering in his commitment to serve and protect the citizens of this dystopian city.
