With Rogue Trooper Redux heading our way the guys at Rebellion have released a Rogue Trooper 101 history video this week which will teach you everything you need to know about the big blue GI as he fights off the evil Nort forces on Nu Earth. The trailer also shows new gameplay from the remastered game too. Rogue Trooper Redux is to be released on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC later this year, and look out for more news at E3 in June.
Here’s what Rebellion have to say:
Rogue is one of the Genetic Infantrymen (‘GIs’), an army of bio-engineered soldiers, created by Southers to fight their all out war against the colonial Nort regime. Not only can GIs survive the poisonous surface of Nu Earth unharmed, but their enhanced abilities make them a phenomenal force.
And yet, Rogue is the last GI standing following a devastating massacre that all but wipes out his kind. Carrying the consciousnesses of three fallen comrades as biochips implanted in his equipment, enhancing his powers further, Rogue transforms from super soldier into a one-man squad of death and destruction. He knows no allegiance but to his own mission, and he is hell-bent on completing it. That mission is REVENGE.
Today’s new ROGUE TROOPER REDUX trailer also reveals for the first time the game’s new, fully remastered Rogue model, offering a glimpse of the extensively updated visuals coming to the remaster.
Rogue has been completely remade from the ground up using current-gen quality materials and higher resolution geometry. He sports a new look, based on the classic style of the original 2000 AD® Rogue Trooper comics.
