Get an education in the new Rogue Trooper Redux trailer

Learn all about the comic book-based world of sharp looking remaster Rogue Trooper Redux in this fresh trailer.

Rogue 101

Ripped from the pages of 2000AD comics, Rogue Trooper was a game that I have a feeling quite a few gamers missed out on way back in 2006. Apparently, so does the game’s publisher Rebellion, because they’re about to issue a Redux of the action/shooter.

The game follows the last in a line of genetically-altered super-soldiers, waging a war on a toxic pit of a planet. If you haven’t checked it out yet, the above trailer will fill you in on all you need to know, which includes:

  • A BAFTA-nominated story faithful to the 2000 AD comic and universe of the same name.

  • A thrilling singleplayer campaign blending stealth, action, cover-based shooting and epic set pieces.

  • Tactical smarts: Listen out for Helm’s strategic advice and confuse the enemy with distractions and holodecoys.

  • Withering firepower: Transform Rogue’s sentient rifle Gunnar into a sentry gun, sniper rifle, mortar, missile launcher and more.

  • Powerful upgrades: collect salvage to upgrade weapons and order Bagman to manufacture explosives under fire.

  • Two intense co-op modes for 2-4 players online*.

I missed out on this one myself when it first hit, and I have to admit this Redux is looking sharp. I also had the pleasure of playing a few minutes worth of the game at NYCC this past week, and I liked what I saw. There isn’t long to wait now either, till Rogue Trooper Redux makes landfall on consoles and the PC.

It hits the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch on October 17th.
