Ground Shatter and publisher Rising Star Games have announced Rico, an arcade-paced, action movie inspired shooter, coming this Spring to all platforms.
The game’s title stands for “Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations” Act, a United States federal law relating to criminal organizations. But forget that! Just kick down doors, shoot bad guys, and exploit the element of surprise to gain the upper hand against overwhelming odds, in this cooperative multiplayer first person shooter. Partner up with a friend in local couch co-op or online, to blast through an ever-changing series of procedurally generated levels. Come back every day for daily challenges and, as you play, unlock weapons, weapon customizations, and new “traits”– gameplay affecting rewards that modify, enhance and dramatically alter your characters’ abilities.
“With their worldwide reach and extensive routes to market, Rising Star Games is a shining example of what a modern games publisher can be,” said James Parker, game director at Ground Shatter. “We are delighted that RICO forms part of what looks to be a bold and hugely exciting 2018 line-up.”
“We’re excited to welcome the explosive action and bullet-time fueled gameplay of RICO into Rising Star Games’s slate of releases for 2018,” said Martin Defries, President of Rising Star Games. “It’s great to be working together, ‘buddy cop’-style with esteemed developer Ground Shatter, in order to bring the visceral and frenetic action of RICO to a global audience.”
