What is the Setting of Crime Boss: Rockay City
According to the game’s trailer, the Crime Boss: Rockay City takes place in, you guessed it, Rockay City, a fictional Florida metropolis of the ’90s. Crime Boss seemingly relies heavily on first-person shooting combat with an emphasis on action-film absurdity. While little is known about the premise based on the game’s actor-oriented trailer, it appears that Chuck Norris is a Sheriff, with the remaining characters cast as suspects, involved in organized crime, as they appear on the evidence wall in Norris’ office. Although it remains to be seen whether this game will be a Grand Theft Auto clone, or manage to branch out and create its own identity, Crime Boss and its unique cast of characters should definitely be a title worth learning more about as it gets closer to launch in 2023 for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
