It’s been a few years since RICO blasted down the doors and delivered some hardcore breakout action to gamers. But it obviously went down well enough because a follow-on, RICO London, then slowly dripped out onto multiple formats – Xbox not being one of them. The days, weeks and months passed, all with no sign of us having the opportunity to visit the mean streets of London town – that is until now, as RICO London storms its way onto Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
RICO London from Ground Shatter Games and Numskull Games has launched on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S, with full next-gen optimisation in the house along with Xbox Smart Delivery ensuring that you’ll be playing the finest version available to you.
It’s priced at £24.99 and will allow Xbox players with the opportunity to battle their way through London’s East End, running alone or with a gang, actioning whatever is needed in order to reach the top.
RICO London is a shooter of the highly explosive variety as you are left to climb a gang infested tower, taking down anyone who may get in your way, smashing your way through doors, navigating bullet-filled rooms and utilising a whole ton of weaponry.
