The RoboCop: Rogue City game is finally out, and Old Detroit seems to be a bad place to be for enjoying a quiet life. Once a thriving city is now ruled by gang violence, so much so that even a a privately owned police force is not able to maintain law and order in the city. As the players take on the role of a supercop from ODPD in Teyon’s latest RPG, the efforts to make the city crime-free seem to go in the right direction.
RoboCop is part tank and part detective and certainly Old Detroit’s best chance at restoring the peace in the city. Throughout the game, players build Officer Alex Murphy’s skills, customize their weapons, and discover the best ways to take down their enemies. Meanwhile, players are spotting multiple easter eggs in the game with references to the RoboCop movies.
By the time the game reaches its finale, players have been craving a RoboCop: Rogue City New Game Plus mode to enjoy the adventure all over again. In recent times, most RPG games come with access to a new game plus mode, allowing players to continue playing the game with their current progress. Usually, this mode adds a touch of difficulty to match the developed character, thus increasing reliability.
Does RoboCop: Rogue City have a New Game Plus mode?
As mentioned above, the New Game Plus mode is a common feature in most of the recent action games and RPGs. Unfortunately, RoboCop: Rogue City does not have New Game Plus. This means that once players reach the end of Officer Murphy’s adventures, it is The End.
After the game is completed and the credits are displayed, the game returns to the main menu. When a player starts a new game, RoboCop will not have any of the skills or Auto 9 upgrades that one has previously acquired. It is a bit disappointing since this essentially means that players cannot take advantage of the previously acquired powers early in the game.
That being said, once a player has beaten RoboCop: Rogue City, there are still a few things they can do without New Game Plus. It is often easy to miss some side quests as one is working their way through the main campaign. Thus, players can try to play every quest, both main and side, and do their best during their second playthrough.
Players of the completionist nature, who have already played all the side quests as well, can increase the difficulty and play the game with more challenge. Similarly, players who are still trying to get replay value out of the game can try challenge runs. Here, players can switch up their build or give themselves a self-imposed challenge.
