Rogue Trooper Redux Released

Rogue Trooper Redux is now available for Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Switch, offering an updated version of this tactical shooter based on the 2000 AD comic series. The Windows edition is available on GOG.com and on Steam, and each offers an optional collector's edition upgrade that includes the soundtrack, a digital combat, and two wallpapers to add to your "collection." The original received mixed reviews, but the announcement for the remake calls it a "true cult classic." Here's the launch trailer, and here's the announcement:

ROGUE TROOPERŪ REDUX sees the return of 2000 AD hero Rogue, the last of the Genetic Infantrymen. Bred only for war and betrayed by his superiors, Rogue seeks nothing but revenge in this pioneering tactical shooter and landmark comic book adaptation.

Originally released in 2006 and earning two BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story, ROGUE TROOPERŪ is a true cult classic. With its timeless blend of stealth-action gameplay, cover-based combat and epic set pieces, it's remained a fan favourite a decade on.

Now ROGUE TROOPERŪ REDUX enhances the original with HD graphics, remodelled assets, new special effects and dynamic lighting, modern controls, extra difficulty settings, a revamped cover system 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."

Thoroughly enjoyed this when it came out... Added some RPG elements to a shooter, which was unusual at the time... Interesting enough story too.

Buying it again when it came out on Steam sucked though, as it wasn't compatible with Win 10 (or whatever OS was relevant at the time), so I'm happy for the Redux, at least when the price (for a remake) is reasonable ; )

Thats the key right there. The Price! Plus they removed local lan from the game as if this will stop the game from being pirated.

Screw them, Ill wait for the 5 dollar sale.

The only thing that flat-earthers have to fear is sphere itself.
