And some of them seem to be playing themselves.
Publisher 505 Games has unveiled Crime Boss: Rockay City at The Game Awards, an upcoming stealth action FPS where players work to become leaders of a criminal underworld set in a fictional version of 90s Florida. It's coming out on March 28, 2023.
Project Care Bear can be played both single-player and up to four player co-op as players complete heists, compete for turf with other crime bosses, and build a criminal empire.
Among the voice acting talent involved is Reservoir Dogs actor Michael Madsen in the leading role as Travis Baker, as well as Chuck Norris, Danny Glover, Danny Trejo, and Vanilla Ice.
What's especially fascinating is that based on the trailer and early screenshots, it looks like Norris, at least, will be playing himself. Like, here he is, in the game, with “Norris” on a badge on his vest. Fascinating.
Crime Boss is developed by Czech studio Ingame Studios and will be its debut game. It launches exclusively on the Epic Game Store in March, with console versions planned for a later date that same year.
