New Year’s Eve, 1999. All of London is gearing up to ring in the new millennium — or possibly clear the contents of their bank accounts for fear of Y2K — but the Metropolitan Police has other things on their plate. In London’s East End, a local gang has quietly amassed a formidable arsenal of weapons and is now preparing to storm one of the capital’s most elite high-rises. Can you and your partner take them out before it’s too late?

RICO London was inspired by our love of action movies – similarities to a certain beloved Christmas classic can’t be overlooked – and we wanted to recreate that same atmosphere in a game. Like its predecessor, RICOE, you and your partner kick in doors, assess the situation as the consummate professionals that you are, and put down the bad guys. There is a moment of slow motion that allows players to both jump on the targets and give that cinematic quality to the action. The cel-shaded art style works together with the effects to give you the feeling of being in an action movie.

To enhance the feel of a buddy cop movie, we designed it to play together, but you can of course choose to go it alone. The levels are randomly generated so you will never experience the same battle twice. This eases the tedium of replaying levels where you already know each room and the likely position of each enemy.

Hidden among the crates of the Ronson Firm’s latest purchase from their Eastern European friends are a few prototype weapons. These are an Xbox exclusive and can be found as players climb the building via the usual upgrade path. Like other weapons in the game, each weapon has a series of variants with unique names and skins. With an integral suppressor and hand-adjusted balance, the Silex-9 is the ultimate high-performance handgun, while tThe latest experimental import from a secret weapons factory, the ACR Assault Rifle combines high-capacity magazines with a devastating rate of fire.

We’re also excited to include an exclusive play mode in the Xbox version of RICO London in which players can test themselves against a series of handwritten challenges. The challenge mode draws on the score attack mentality of the game and offers a whole new way of playing Rico Londonsolo or co-op, where they earn a star rating based on their performance in the challenge against various additional sub-objectives selected from a list of possible criteria, such as survival for a period of time, kill with headshots only, no sense of spraying, and much more.

We sincerely hope you enjoy playing RICO London as much as we enjoyed making it. Yippie Ki-yay, friends!
