Back in February developer Rebellion Developments announced Rogue Trooper Redux, a remaster of the PS2, Xbox, and PC game Rogue Trooper, for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
For those that don’t 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 time, and upon release garnered a bit of cult-following. As for Rogue Trooper Redux, well, here’s an overview via Rebellion:
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.
Today, Rebellion released a new character reveal trailer that asks “Who is Rogue Trooper?” The video is a great overview of the character — and the original game — for those that don’t know anything about the 2000 AD universe. The video also notably offers up a first-look at the remastered visuals in Redux.
A release date beyond “coming soon” has not been provided. Below, you can check the new trailer/video:
