Released way back in 2006 by Rebellion, Rogue Trooper followed the journey of 2000 A.D. hero Rogue, the last of the Genetic Infantrymen. The game received BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story and quickly became a cult classic. With Rogue Trooper Redux, gamers can experience the stealth-action, cover-based combat gameplay with HD graphics, remodelled assets, extra difficulty settings, and more.
“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. It’s a really fantastic, exciting shooter and now it looks how we always imagined it.”
Some key featured of the remastered game include:
- BAFTA-nominated story: An authentic adaptation of the famous 2000 AD sci-fi comic, composed of war, betrayal and revenge…
- Remastered visuals: Stunning high definition, totally remodeled characters, weapons & vehicles, new special effects and more!
