R.I.P.D.: The Game Release Date and Price Announced

View author's profile

From the team that brought you God Mode, developer Old School Games and publisher Atlus have announced an adaptation of Universal's motion picture R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department) starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges.

"Based on the upcoming 3D supernatural action-adventure film, R.I.P.D., you and a partner will take up the holsters of two lawmen dispatched to the otherworld to protect and serve the living from an increasingly destructive array of souls who refuse to move peacefully to the other side. Top-notch teamwork and an arsenal of badass weapons are the keys to defeating your enemies and bringing order back to the world."

  • Film Authenticity - Working directly with Universal, Old School received ongoing access to the movie materials so that players could experience a faithful adaptation of the unique world of R.I.P.D., including environments, enemies, weaponry, effects and humor from the film.
  • Partner with your Friends Online - Two-player online co-op allows wanna-be gunslingers to use teamwork as they battle their way through the game. Your enemies won’t have a chance against the right team strategy.
  • Over the Top Action - Gunslingers will blast, impale, explode, and arrest enemies just as the heroes do in the film.
  • Unique In-Game Betting System - Co-op partners can put their in-game currency where their mouth is with a new feature that allows them to bet on who’s a better R.I.P.D. officer. Measured by which player can capture the most enemies, who can stay standing the longest, and other action-packed challenges, the virtual betting system allows players to always keep the stakes high.

R.I.P.D.: The Game will be available July 17th for 800MSP.

I loved god mode on steam so im guessing this will be even better because they shouldn't have as many problems the second time.

First thing I thought was, "Wow, looks like God Mode." And a matter of fact it it is. It may actually be not that bad if it's like that game.

We got lots of worst games already released this year and this one is going be next game for being worst. I couldn't really judge this game for now but many screenshots show it is look like another worst game. Atlus released their last game and it is worst game called God Mode. I am expect RIPD will be their next worst title.

Atlus need to quit release so many crap games and bring back Catherine and release it for next generation consoles. I really like to see Catherine 2. :)

Looks like shit, another rush job to get a game out in time for movie hype to fool ignorant people into buying it.

It will be garbage as these things always are. Don't think so?

What was the latest one of these movie games? Fast and the Furios game? 1/10's everywhere.

A rushed game based on a movie that will most likely flop. Wow what a great idea.

Honestly the movie looks pretty badass. I never played God Mode but I heard good things about it, so this really couldn't be all that bad. Hell, I hardly ever get movie licensed games but in this case I may just go ahead and do so.

@13 Actually lol'ed.

I didn't know people like 14 actually exist. How can someone watch the RIPD trailer and think it's anything but the worst kind of garbage? I mean even the name is cringe worthy.

Writer: "Hey production studio, I've got this great idea for a movie. Get this, when really good cops die they are forced to join the Rest in Peace Department and they fight demons from hell in OUR WORLD. Shit's sick, right? Get this, since they can't look like themselves the main character looks like a dumb chinese guy and and Jeff Bridges looks like a smokin model. LOL right?"

Producer: "I've no fucking clue how my career fell into such a decline that this movie will sit at the top of my mountain of failures. Let's see if we can go down as the absolute most fucking stupid summer blockbuster to ever be released. We'll have a no-name make a video game based on it to that no one on the planet will ever want to buy."

It sounds like people think this is a full game, when it is actually only $10. It has coop, so that already makes it much better.
I'll wait till' I see some gameplay before judging.

@15: I dunno, maybe I have low standards or just like to be entertained, but it looks like a funny, mindless action flick that I'll enjoy. *shrug*

@21: Give him a break, he's deaf. Not easy to grasp the intricacies of a language that way. :)

@24 Seems like you'd have to be scraping the bottom of the barrel to want to see this over really ANY of the other summer blockbusters. If you see them all, then good on you. But otherwise... Well, I guess there's benefit for me in you making sure summer blockbusters are successful.

@25 why would you want to see 1 movie over another when you can watch them all?

do you intend on watching 1 movie this summer? I highly doubt it.

Reminds me of God Mode, only problem with that its too easy to max your level upgrade all your weapons and costumes. Hopefully we'll see some dlc with a raised cap and more stages, weapons, and better looking costumes!

You don't HAVE TO risk it - just download the trial version!

Personally, I think the movie was made to be a video game. The fact the game is only 800 MS Points, instead of a full-blown 360 retail disc release, should make it less daunting!

I'll certainly give the "FREE TRIAL" a go!!

ITT: People who must have hated Men In Black.

And are judging a $10 digital game as if it's a $60 retail game.
