THQ Nordic and Weappy Studios have announced the release of Rebel Cops, a turn-based tactical game that is set in the same universe as This is the Police, coming for all major consoles and on PC via Steam.
Reunite and retake the town!
The town of Ripton has been taken over by Victor Zuev, a vicious crime lord hell-bent on reigning supreme in this place. Businessmen and other people of power are all at his mercy and bidding. Even the cops have all turned bad and are part of his crime team. Every other opposition team have been sniffed out and taken down. Its all up to a small rag-tag team of ex-cops to fight this bad wave of crooks. Not all heroes wear capes or even badges in this case!
Always outgunned and outmanned, you must rely on stealth as the most effective approach to take down Zuev’s men. Play smart and achieve side-objectives to obtain better gear and equipment for your team. Your gonna need it, as Zuev’s men are ruthless and will stop at nothing to bring you and your team down! There is always a risk in the decisions you make in the game. Every bullet can cost a life, even if it is one of yours. No hitpoint markers mean that you won’t know if any of your troopers is badly hurt, or possibly just bleeding to death by a small wound. So plan your tactics carefully, guide your troopers to safety in the best possible manner.
Main features of the game:
- Fight the corrupt authority: After criminal mastermind, Viktor Zuev took over the town of Ripton, you and your fellow police officers have gone rogue to do what must be done. Perform tactical turn-based missions to undermine Zuev’s allies and bring the power back to the people.
- No hitpoints, no forgiveness: You are outmanned and outgunned. Use stealth tactics and cover to approach the enemy quietly and take them down before they can raise any alarms. There are no health bars in Rebel Cops! Once shot, your officers will bleed out unless you act fast to save them.
- Explore, loot, and watch your back: Rebel Cops features a large number of scenarios, from compact operations to big, open-ended locations to explore. Build up your street cred in Ripton by helping out local folks in side missions and get rewarded for exploring the levels thoroughly.
- Take the high moral road – or not: Justice must be served, but it’s up to you to choose how that happens. Will you play by Zuev’s merciless rules? Will you help the desperate townspeople, even if it means putting your operation at risk? In Rebel Cops, your reputation will affect your team’s morale and even the merchants’ prices.
Rebel Cops is out now for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC via Steam.
