With The Update 8.0, Crime Boss: Rockay City Makes Heisting Fun Again

Forget the grind and grab your crew.

Story Highlights

  • Crime Boss: Rockay City’s Update 8.0 fixes the grind for loot.
  • Explore the neon-soaked criminal world in solo or co-op heists.
  • Developers are improving the game with new heists and a growing community.

Crime Boss: Rockay City, with its recent Update 8.0, has swooped in and redefined the cooperative heisting genre. Forget the frustration of Payday 3’s delays – Crime Boss is the heisting experience I’ve been craving, and it’s only getting better.

Although, Crime Boss wasn’t always that good. The launch was rough, with a progression system that felt like a chore, and the voice acting was at its worst. But the developers (bless their hearts) haven’t abandoned their game. Update 8.0 is a game-changer, and here’s why you should grab your crew and dive back into the neon-drenched streets of Rockay City.

A New Progression System

The progression system was improved with Update 8.0, and it is now even better. There’s no need to grind hours and hours for reputation points. Now, there is no confusion about how to progress and unlock new gear, skills, and safe houses. Every heist feels meaningful because you’re actively working towards something you want. This update is considerate of my time and does not overwhelm me in terms of making reasonable progress.

Apart from the simple progression, this update also included several options for progress. There is bonus experience for completing challenges and objectives in heists, which adds replayability to each mission or heist. This keeps the gameplay fresh and rewarding, making your progression even more satisfying.

Solo Crime Boss Or Co-Op Heists

Crime Boss combines the best of both worlds, with a strong single-player narrative and an enjoyable co-op mode. The single-player mode is a rogue-lite experience in which you control Travis Baker, a tough criminal boss. With each run, you acquire new talents and crew members, gradually expanding your criminal empire. It’s an exciting way of improving your abilities before engaging in a co-op.

Speaking about co-op, Update 8.0 takes it to the next level. The Crime Time option allows you to collaborate with friends to plan a series of heists. Communication is essential; shouting instructions, organizing distractions, and watching each other’s backs during firefights are pure fun. To keep the game interesting, new levels of difficulty are added regularly, and goals can be mixed and changed.

Not Quite Perfect, But Getting There

Let’s be honest, Crime Boss isn’t flawless. The voice acting is so bad that it is laughable. And there can be occasional glitches like guards somehow spotting you through walls. However, these are minor issues in comparison to the gameplay’s pure enjoyment.

The commitment of Crime Boss’ development team is what really makes it stand out. It’s not just been mere fixing of glitches but they have listened to what we have to say and tackled our issues. Update 8.0 is evidence of that dedication. They are definitely devoted to giving us the best heisting game.

According to the developers, there are many more exciting heists in the works. Every new robbery will have its own set of difficulties and opportunities through which you will have to try yourself and learn to use the abilities of your team in a new fashion.
