Rebellion only recently announced it is opening up the 2000 AD license other developers, and we already have the first game to come out of this new deal – Rogue Trooper Redux.
This is an HD remaster of the cover-base shooter from 2006, which in turn is based on the 2000 AD comic strip. While I personally never played the original Rogue Trooper, Rebellion claims it is “an authentic, tactical, cover-based third-person shooter that debuted before the genre became the gaming staple it is today.”
“Rogue Trooper Redux will remaster the Rebellion classic for a new generation of players, taking them to the chem-blasted battlefields of Nu Earth,” reads the official announcement. “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.”
That all sounds pretty cool. Rogue Trooper Redux is “coming soon” to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch. You can still get the original Rogue Trooper on Steam, by the way.Some of our posts include links to online retail stores. We get a small cut if you buy something through one of our links.
