Gaming peripheral manufacturer Roccat announced their new in-house game development team Roccat Games Studio. The new studio’s first game is Sick City, a fast paced real time tactical combat game. Players will command a squad of four as they fight house to house to control Aimo, a mysterious crystalline resource that powers everything. Roccat Games Studio has drawn inspiration from games like Commandos, Company of Heroes, and Warcraft 3 to develop Sick City.
Roccat Games Studio is developing the game with a philosophy that player collaboration should guide development. The community will have a say in what sort of new content will be released for the final game while Sick City is in development, whether it means new maps, factions, campaigns, etc. The first closed alpha is scheduled to begin in early June. Sign ups are available here.
