Riot Control Simulator coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S in 2023
In 2023 Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S players will get a chance to take charge of services suppressing street protests and restoring law and order in cities. Such possibilities will be available in Riot Control Simulator, a realistic simulator of pacifying raging crowds, which will distinguish itself thanks to, among others, extensive tactical options and a system of moral choices. In 2022, the simulator will first debut on PC, and in the subsequent year it will also hit PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
The new simulator is a joint publishing project of Games Box S.A. and Ultimate Games S.A. The game is being developed by the Polish studio Corpix Games.
Riot Control Simulator is a unique game that allows you to lead the law enforcement services that keep the city streets safe. The goal of the game will be to maintain control and to avert the dangers posed by raging crowds of protesters.
As announced by the creators, Riot Control Simulator will offer many different challenges and numerous locations inspired by cities from various countries. The gameplay is supposed to require a large dose of craftiness and the ability to select the proper tactics for a given situation. A special moral choices system is also being developed.
“The modern world is full of unrest, and practically every day brings news of protests erupting in various parts of the world. Sometimes these activities are spontaneous, other times they involve organised and trained individuals. In all cases, however, they pose a considerable challenge for the police and other governmental forces, which we intend to realistically depict in the game. When developing Riot Control Simulator, we put a lot of emphasis on details, so that the player can accurately experience the situation from the perspective of law enforcement services” – said Tomasz Supe?, CEO at Games Box S.A.
Players will be given a wide range of possibilities and various equipment to use, including e.g. heavy vehicles, water cannons and even tanks.
The methods of handling the crowd are also supposed to be varied – ranging from attempts to amicably suppress the protest to brutal and ruthless pacification. The creators emphasise that, for example, when using tight formation players will be able to catch the most aggressive protesters, but more non-standard solutions will also be available, including ones based on provocation and infiltration.
