Riot – Civil Unrest was announced way back in 2015 and is now shaping up to release for PC via Steam. Making a recent appearance on Steam’s “Coming Soon” page reveals a release date of 2017 and is followed by a trailer showing citizens Vs. riot officers.
In publisher Merge Games and developers Leonard Menchiari and IV Productions’ Riot – Civil Unrest players can assume the role as a citizen, SJW, riot officer, hippie or law enforcer. You can see which side will win by controlling them and fighting to the death in the streets.
“As civil crisis deepens and inequality tears the very fabric of society the discontentment of the masses manifests itself in violent public disturbances and civil disorder. Play as the police or the angry horde as RIOT – Civil Unrest places you in some of the world’s most fractious disputes.”
The upcoming game about riots explores real-time strategy elements in a 2D side-scrolling setup.
Scenarios that players can jump into consist of heat-of-the-moment conflicts that supposedly are based on actual riots. Additionally, this means that you can alter events or play them out like Indignados, Arab Spring, Keratea, and NoTAV.
Moreover, given the mass votes on Steam Greenlight — back when Greenlight existed — it seems that a lot of people really do want to beat up SJWs, screechers, and new-age retro-hippie sex offenders.
If that sounds like something that you can get behind, two trailers showing Riot – Civil Unrest sit below for you to look over.
Given that we are nearing the end of 2017 with only two and a half months to go it’s likely that the devs will be announcing a specific date and time soon for Riot – Civil Unrest, unless it’s pushed to 2018.
