Gamers love a redemption story, and after the likes of Cyberpunk 2077, Diablo 3, and Destiny recovered from some iffy launches, Crime Boss: Rockay City is aiming to be the next on the list.

The title, which stars acting icons like Michael Madsen and Chuck Norris, launched in early 2023 to a tepid response at best. Our own review awarded it 2 stars out of 5, but after a series of updates, it's coming to Steam with a larger player base in tow on June 18

The game struggled to find an audience at first with a "rockay" launch, but subsequent updates have added new missions, improvements to the stealth system, new weapons to earn, and much more. The Steam version will include all of the previously released DLCs when it launches this month for a limited time.

In fact, the current roadmap stretches into 2025, and planned inclusions include a Horde-style mode and additional multiplayer missions.

"We’re so thankful for the ever-growing community of Crime Boss fans and the gamers who have stuck with us. After a year of hard work to improve the game, we’re confident people will see the positive changes we’ve made," said Jarek Kolář, Head of Development at INGAME STUDIOS via a press release.

"The Steam platform is the perfect opportunity to welcome as many players as possible to Rockay City."

Good news if you've not checked it out and were curious, too - Crime Boss: Rockay City will arrive with a launch price of $15.99 on Steam. You can wishlist it now, and there's a free playtest coming up, too.

Will you be picking up Crime Boss? I'm actually quite tempted to jump in and test things out, if nothing else, for the sheer star power of the cast.
