RoboCop: Rogue City allows players to explore the city of Old Detroit and fight against criminals throughout it, but is it open world?
In RoboCop: Rogue City, players step into the chrome boots of Officer Alex Murphy, better known as RoboCop. You must fight back against crime to bring order to the streets of Old Detroit. From its grim underbelly in the slums to the glitz and glamor of its highrises, players will have an opportunity to see a lot of Old Detroit. As it’s a strong recreation of the city from the movies, it’s no wonder that many are curious if it will be a seamless open world. Below, we explain exactly what type of world you can expect in RoboCop: Rogue City.
No, RoboCop: Rogue City is not an open-world game. While there are open areas to explore, it is predominantly a linear experience. The game utilizes linear mission areas, with the opportunity to explore open areas and complete both side quests and miscellaneous tasks. The areas themselves are not that big but do have different secrets for players to find within them.
Due to the slower traversal that players experience while playing as RoboCop, it’s not a surprise that the entire game isn’t fully open-world. The format that it is currently set in works perfectly, especially with the open districts to explore not being massive. Even the linear missions feel great due to the gameplay style of RoboCop: Rogue City.
