The first gameplay trailer for RoboCop: Rogue City has been published, revealing that it will star Peter Weller.
Weller played RoboCop in the original movie as well as its sequel RoboCop 2, before other actors took over the role.
Rogue City publisher Nacon has now confirmed that Weller will return to reprise the role that made him a star in the 1980s.
RoboCop: Rogue City - gameplay reveal
This doesn’t mark the first time that Weller has returned to play RoboCop in a video game. When the character was added as a fighter in Mortal Kombat 11‘s Aftermath DLC, Weller voiced him then as well.
However, this is the first time Weller has returned to play the action hero in a lead role for 32 years.
“Welcome to Detroit,” reads the blurb accompanying the game’s debut trailer. “Crime runs rampant as the city lies on the edge of ruin, people fighting for scraps as others live extravagant lives of luxury.
“Control of the Detroit Police Department is given to the Omni Consumer Products corporation in an attempt to restore order. You are that solution, RoboCop, a cyborg tasked with protecting the city.
“The triumphant return of RoboCop wouldn’t feel right without the man who brought so much life into the role, and we’re excited to reveal that Peter Weller will be performing voiceover work on the game. Enjoy this first look at gameplay and for the record, ‘dead or alive, you’re coming with me’.”
