Epic Games announces
that Rogue Company
is now in open beta testing. This is
accompanied by the news that marks a new free-to-play era for this shooter from
First Watch Games and Hi-Rez Studios. You can now pick this up for nothing on
Epic Games Store
. Here's word:
The mission has evolved: starting
Company is free to play on the Epic Games Store!
When Rogue Company burst onto the scene two months ago, we were overwhelmed by
the response from our players. Not only did you make Rogue Company one of the
most-played new shooters of the year, you showed your drive for victory and
racked up some impressive stats: 500m+ downs. 35m+ revives. 10m+ headshots with
the LR15 Fullbody sniper rifle. We’ve concluded that our players don’t just
complete missions, they obliterate them!
Our Open Beta launch comes hot on the heels of our Desert Rose update,
which saw the release of Lockdown, our latest map, as well as custom matches.
Our players overwhelmingly requested the ability to face off against their best
friends - or mortal adversaries - for the ultimate Rogue Company bragging
rights, and with the introduction of custom matches we gave them the opportunity
to go head-to-head with the players of their choice. And now, they can do so in
a maximum security prison deep in the jungles of Venezuela in Lockdown, a
facility built to contain some of the world's most dangerous threats!
As Rogue Company becomes free to play, we are also introducing our newest Rogue,
Dahlia. A master of small-squad tactics, Dahlia is a well-rounded support
character that excels at pairing up with one other player on the team. If she’s
on your team, Dahlia’s got your back - and if you’re not, you’d better WATCH
In the coming months, our goal is to give Rogue Company players more of what
they love. Not only will we be rolling out more Rogues, more maps, and more game
modes, we will also be listening to our most valuable source of feedback during
open beta: our players. We look forward to hearing all of the feedback you have
on our latest update as we continue working to create the most stylish
third-person shooter experience possible. Whether you’re an existing Rogue
Company beta player or just joining us, remember: it’s time to Save the Day,
Look Good, and Get Paid!
