New content to enjoy

Rising Star Games and Ground Shatter are pleased to announce that RICO, the buddy cop first-person shooter, has received a new update that increases the challenge and intensity in two brand-new game modes.

Hardcore Case Mode provides a new variation on the original case mode by allowing players to use their existing selection of weapons and equipment and pursue an intense new case at a much higher difficulty level. Challenge Mode has also been added giving players intense action where they must work against the clock to complete time-based objectives as quickly as possible within each of the 27 levels. Challenge Mode also lets players earn Reputation Points for unlocking weapon skins during offline play for the first time.

RICO is also set to receive downloadable content just in time for the holiday season.

Arcade-Style, Action-Movie Shooter RICO: Available Now

Door-busting, gun-blasting action!

Gothenburg, Sweden – March 14th – Publisher Rising Star Games and developer Ground Shatter announce that RICO, the buddy cop shooter inspired by modern action cinema, is now available on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™ and PC.

In RICO players have twenty-four hours to solve a case and bring to justice the organized criminal syndicates that have blighted that city of San Amaro. Prepare to kick down doors and shoot your way through randomly generated levels that make every case new and unique. Gamers can also team up with a friend to play the role of a pair of loose-cannon police partners and support each other through intense urban shootouts in online or local co-op play.

James Parker, Director at Ground Shatter says, “We wanted to make a game that was a technical tour de force and broke new ground in its mechanics, gameplay and storytelling… but then we found that kicking doors and shooting bad guys was a lot more fun so we made a game about that instead. Plus there’s co-op and slow motion so it’s pretty much always cool.”



RICO is an arcade-style tactical shooter, where players must react in the moment to shootouts as they unfold, breaching doors, moving from room to room, and unlocking new weapons, traits, and equipment as they seek to bring down the crime bosses in the game’s main case mode. They can also compete against one another with a fixed loadout and on the same level on the Leaderboards of the Daily Play mode.

Features

Compete against the clock to solve a case in 24 hours
Online Co-op and Offline split-screen play
"Daily play" with online leaderboards
Randomly generated cases, operations, and environments
Unlockable weapons, traits, and equipment

Kick door, shoot, repeat

RICO doesn't aim to reinvent the wheel. As a matter of fact, RICO looks to pair things down to the very basics of an FPS experience. What it lacks in bells and whistles, it makes up for with purely stupid fun.
