Third-person shooter Rogue Trooper is getting a remaster

By Melvyn Tan on Mar 1, 2017

It has been announced that 2006 third-person shooter Rogue Trooper is getting a remaster called Rogue Trooper Redux.

While the original was developed by Rebellion of Sniper Elite fame, Rogue Trooper Redux will be made in partnership with TickTock Games. This makes it the first game under the 2000 AD IP to be developed outside of Rebellion, after they opened up the license to other developers.

"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 press release (and Steam 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.

If you're curious about the original, you can find it on Steam, where it costs RM23. The critic reviews at time of its release mostly gave decent remarks, but the Steam user reviews are "very positive". That doesn't necessarily mean that you'll like it of course, but it sounds like something worth checking out in a sale. Below's a gameplay video of it.

Rebellion are also offering the chance to win a free copy of the Redux version at launch. Simply head over to the website and sign up by filling in details like name, email, country and preferred platform. Rogue Trooper Redux will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and - interestingly - Nintendo Switch.
