Today, developer Rebellion Developments — the team behind Sniper Elite 4 and owners of comic book 2000 AD — announced Rogue Trooper Redux, a remaster of the PS2, Xbox, and PC game Rogue Trooper, for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
As you may know, Rogue Trooper first released back in 2006, bringing 2000 AD’s blue-skinned GI to the above mentioned platforms. The game used several story and plot elements from the original comic of the same name. At the time of its release the game garnered a bit of a cult-following, and was praised for its tactical, cover-based third-person shooter gameplay.
The following brief description of the the remaster is provided:
Rogue Trooper Redux will remaster the Rebellion classic for a new generation of players, taking them to the chem-blasted battlefields of Nu Earth. Rogue, a bio-engineered Genetic Infantryman (or “GI”) immune to the planet’s poisonous atmosphere, is the last soldier standing against the colonial Nort regime. Carrying three fallen comrades as biochips in his equipment, Rogue is a one-unit squad of death and destruction, and he only has one thing on his mind – Revenge.
Further details on how the game is improved or whether there is any new content, has not been divulged. What we do know is that the game is being developed in partnership with TickTock Games. Further, the game also marks the first of potentially many externally developed 2000 AD games after Rebellion announced it is opening up the IP for other developers to work on it.
A release date beyond “coming soon” has also not been provided.
