Rogue Trooper Redux Gets a New Trailer and Earlier Switch Release Date

Rogue Trooper Redux gets a new trailer that shows combat, story, and more -- as well as a new release date for the Nintendo Switch.

Developer Rebellion has officially released a new trailer for its third-person shooter Rogue Trooper Redux, titled “101.” As you’d expect from the trailer’s title, it highlights the game’s story, special features, and, of course, its action.The trailer (which you can see above) clocks in at about five minutes.

Alongside the trailer, Rebellion also announced that the Nintendo Switch version of the game will release October 17, the same day as the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

The trailer showcases the game’s Biochip feature, something that makes Rogue a unique soldier. His sentient weapon contains elements of three of Rogue’s fallen comrades: Helm, who distracts enemies and offers advice; the versatile Bagman, who aids in crafting a variety of things and can lay landmines too; and Gunnar, who improves your accuracy.

You’ll be utilizing more than just guns in your standard run-and-shoot setup, though. The game’s combat features a wide variety of weapons and scenarios, including armored vehicles, Lazookas, and turrets, along with stealth combat. The game will feature online co-op as well, allowing you to relive the events leading up to the main story or take part in a tower-defense mode called “Stronghold.”

Where all this combat takes place should be familiar to fans of the Rogue comics too. As you travel across the desolate landscape of Nu-Earth, you’ll encounter locations like Harpo’s Ferry and the Quartz Zone. The ultimate goal is to seek revenge on the Traitor General, who — as you might have figured out — led the betrayal and massacre of Rogue’s fellow GIs (Genetic Infantrymen). The story, penned by well-known Scottish writer Gordon Rennie, was nominated for a BAFTA. 

If this all sounds familiar, it’s because the game is a remastered version of the original Rogue Trooper that debuted on PlayStation 2, PC, and Wii in 2006. For the remake, the developers implemented full HD graphics, added new special effects, and completely redesigned the lighting and geometry.
