Gamers saw the announcement of the new Riot Control Simulator, where you have to gamble for the cops disperse protests, and were upset. Police against protesters are not what gamers ordered in 2021. However, jokes about the attack on civilians softened the situation.
The Polish developer of PC games Ultimate Games SA together with Corpix Games announced the Riot Control Simulator. As conceived by the authors of the project, the game takes place in a democratic country in a critical situation due to protests.
Gamers are given the opportunity to play as police officers who are trying to protect civilians from aggressors. At the same time, the cops’ arsenal includes clubs, shields, special vehicles, tear gas and water cannons. Each player’s action can weaken the protest or, conversely, cause an even greater riot.
No release date has been set for the simulator, but the official trailer for Riot Control Simulator, posted on the Ultimate Games SA YouTube channel on April 12, can be viewed below.
