New Year’s Eve, 1999. All of London is preparing to ring in the new millennium, or possibly cleanse the contents of their bank accounts for Y2K fears, but the Metropolitan Police have other things on their minds. In London’s East End, a local gang has been quietly amassing a formidable arsenal of weapons and is now preparing to storm one of the capital’s most elite skyscrapers. Can you and your partner get them out before it’s too late?
RICH London It’s inspired by our love of action movies (the similarities to a certain beloved Christmas classic can’t be overlooked) and we wanted to recreate that same vibe in a game. Like its predecessor, rich, you and your partner kick down doors, assess the situation like the consummate professionals you are, and take down the bad guys. There is a slow motion moment that allows players to jump over targets and gives that cinematic quality to the action. The cel-shading art style works in conjunction with the effects to give the feel of being inside an action movie.
To enhance the buddy cop movie feel, we designed it to play cooperatively, but of course you can also choose to play solo maverick style. Levels are randomly generated so you never experience the same fight twice. This alleviates the boredom of replaying levels where you already know each room and the likely position of each enemy.
Hidden among the boxes of the Ronson Firm’s latest purchase from its Eastern European friends are a couple of prototype weapons. These are exclusive to Xbox and can be found as players ascend the building via the usual upgrade path. Like other weapons in the game, each weapon has a range of variants with unique names and skins. Featuring an integral suppressor and hand-tuned balance, the Silex-9 is the ultimate high-value sidearm, while youhe latest experimental import from a secret weapons factory, the ACR assault rifle combines high-capacity magazines with a devastating rate of fire.
We are also pleased to include an exclusive game mode in the Xbox version of RICH London in which players can test themselves against a series of hand-crafted challenges. Building on the game’s score attack mentality, Challenge Mode offers a new way to play. rich londoneither solo or co-op, where they earn a star rating based on how well they perform in the challenge against various additional sub-targets selected from a list of potential criteria, such as surviving for a set period of time, killing only with shots in the head, useless syringes, and many more.
We sincerely hope you enjoy playing RICH London as much as we enjoy creating it. Yippie Ki-yay, folks!
