Emergency Heroes is a mission-based driving game developed by Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Barcelona and published by Ubisoft.

Gameplay[edit]

Emergency Heroes is a driving game. The vehicles are fundamental to gameplay, and every mission requires a range of driving abilities provided by that vehicle. For example, the EMT is centered on making jumps, while police perform much chasing. Players drive 12 different variations of rescue vehicles as a police officer, firefighter or EMT (the other 3 being criminal vehicles) and navigate through the streets of San Alto, keeping citizens safe along the way. The game also features a two player mode for two players.

Story[edit]

Emergency heroes starts in the future in San Alto City. The city's inhabitants have discovered that the town emergency vehicles are not strong enough to take on emergencies. Therefore, an organization named the EHO created better vehicles. Zach Harper was one of the cadets, but was kicked out after an accident involving his friend, Sammy Silvestri. The cadet program had been canceled due to the incident. Captain Gabriel Walters, who has worked at the EHO for 40 years, and tech specialist Kelly Okada, decide to recall Zach, as Sammy had disappeared from the hospital and believes he is up to no good. Zach must stop Sammy and make the streets of San Alto safe again.
