Well folks, we talked about it and now it's available worldwide. Rebellion's Rogue Trooper Redux is out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. The publisher celebrated the launch by releasing a brand new trailer.
Let's go through the story one more time, because why not. Rogue Trooper Redux sees the return of 2000 AD hero Rogue, the last of the Genetic Infantrymen. His fallen brothers in arms will help him get revenge on those who betrayed his kind. That. Never. Gets. Old.
After their superiors betray them, Rogue is the only GI left. However, he's not alone. As the original programmer of Rogue Trooper, Rich May, said in : GIs live on inside their biochips. The three other GIs: Gunnar, Bagman and Helm will each use their special abilities to help Rogue in his mission:
- Helm will spew out strategic advice left and right. Additionally, he will confuse the enemy with distractions and holodecoys.
- Gunnar - the sentient rifle will be able to transform into all manner of great shoot shoot devices including and possibly not limited to: a sentry gun, sniper rifle, mortar and missile launcher.
- Bagman is the name of your fellow GI whose consciousness has taken up permanent residence in your backpack. He has the unique ability to upgrade weapons and fashion explosives out of salvage you collect along the way.
The original game was released back in 2006. It went on to earn two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story. Rogue Trooper featured a mix of stealth-action gameplay and cover-based combat. New Rogue Trooper Redux "enhances the original with HD graphics, remodelled assets, new special effects and dynamic lighting, modern controls, extra difficulty settings, a revamped cover system and more" says the press release.
"We've always been hugely proud of the original Rogue Trooper," said Rebellion CEO and Co-founder Jason Kingsley OBE. "It's special to bring it back with the help of our friends at TickTock Games. Remastering it has once again highlighted how influential a game it was for Rebellion. You can see the roots of tactical shooting that evolved over the years into our more recent games, such as Sniper Elite 4 and Battlezone."
