Independent UK developer and 2000AD publisher Rebellion has released a new Rogue Trooper Redux trailer, comparing the game’s impressive visuals directly with those of the original 2006 game.
The new trailer also reveals the game’s launch date of 17th October 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (from Steam and GOG.com). The Nintendo Switch edition will release soon after.
The detailed new “Graphics Comparison” trailer combines and compares cut scene and gameplay footage from the original Rogue Trooper game released back in 2006 starring the 2000AD character with the new remaster, highlighting the overhaul given to the game by Rebellion’s in-house developers in conjunction with UK studio TickTock Games, including completely remodelled characters, weapons and vehicles.
Rogue Trooper Redux, which will be on show at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, also features remastered cinematics, new special effects, dynamic lighting, and higher fidelity geometry.
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…
