Explosive cooperative shooter Rico coming to all major formats in 2018

-

It’s in development by the guys at Ground Shatter, but today as a partnership with Rising Star Games is announced comes the news that Rico will be hitting all major gaming formats in 2018.

The explosive bullet-time fuelled first person shooter that is Rico will give us the chance to play as both the good cop, and the bad, as you react to unfolding shootouts, assessing situations and surprising adversaries.

Rico stands for “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” Act, a United States federal law relating to criminal organizations. But you don’t need to worry about that and instead just need to focus on kicking down doors, shooting bad guys, and exploiting the element of surprise to gain the upper hand against overwhelming odds.

By partnering up with a friend – either in local couch co-op or online – you’ll get to blast through an ever-changing series of procedurally generated levels. New daily challenges are promised and the more you play the more you’ll unlock weapons, weapon customizations, and new “traits” – rewards that modify, enhance and dramatically alter your characters’ abilities.

Features include:

  • Online co-op and offline split-screen play
  • “Daily play” with online leaderboards
  • Randomly generated cases, operations, and environments
  • Unlockable weapons, traits, and mission types
  • Compete against the clock to solve a case in 24 hours

“With their worldwide reach and extensive routes to market, Rising Star Games is a shining example of what a modern games publisher can be,” said James Parker, game director at Ground Shatter. “We are delighted that RICO forms part of what looks to be a bold and hugely exciting 2018 line-up.”

“We’re excited to welcome the explosive action and bullet-time fueled gameplay of RICO into Rising Star Games’s slate of releases for 2018,” said Martin Defries, President of Rising Star Games. “It’s great to be working together, ‘buddy cop’-style with esteemed developer Ground Shatter, in order to bring the visceral and frenetic action of RICO to a global audience.”

We would hazard a guess and say that ‘all major gaming formats’ would include the likes of Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC, and whilst there is no set release date, Rico most certainly looks like something to keep a beady eye on… especially as seeing the announcement trailer below is hugely impressive.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
