Rebellion and Tick Tock completely remade Rogue Trooper from the ground up using current-gen quality materials and higher resolution geometry. The game now has a graphics comparison video and a release date - 17 October. The Switch version will launch soon after.

Rogue Trooper Redux just got a new graphics comparison trailer. Everyone's into those trailers these days. The trailer showed off all of the new visual remasters and remodels.

Everything has changed:

  • Completely remodelled characters, weapons and vehicles
  • Remastered cinematics
  • New special effects
  • Dynamic lighting
  • Higher fidelity geometry

Everything has changed except the GI's attitude towards shirts. Rebellion and Tick Tock also changed the previously greyish super soldiers into blue killing machines befitting a Nort's worst nightmare.

All this is well and good but when will you actually get to play it? 17 October, 2017 is the release date the trailer informs us about. That date is, of course, valid for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam and gog.com). Switch owners, you'll have to keep playing Breath of the Wild just a little bit longer, as the release date for your console is still unknown.

Rogue Trooper Redux will be available digitally on all platforms and also as a boxed edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game will be priced at £19.99 and feature a BAFTA-nominated campaign and dedicated online co-op modes.

The first gameplay video that came out last month showed the opening sequence of the first level, where we meet our man - Rogue. He lands in the Quartz Zone in a Dalek looking pod and proceeds to shoot some Norts' faces off.

Shortly after that, we met Gunnar. They are both genetic infantrymen equipped with biochips that record everything the GIs do on the battlefield. The GIs live on in their biochips when their physical bodies die.
