Rebellion released a new trailer spotlighting the main protagonist from the developer’s upcoming Rogue Trooper Redux.
The new video gives players a first glimpse at the game’s titular character, simply named Rogue Trooper, along with a first look at his newly remastered in-game model. The trailer also shows an extensive look at the the remaster’s visuals.
So just exactly who is the Rogue Trooper? According to Rebellion:
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.
Rogue Trooper Redux is a remaster of a 2006 Rebellion developed game. The third person shooter follows the Rogue Trooper on a mission of revenge on planet Nu-Earth. The game uses story elements from the comic book of the same name.
Rogue Trooper Redux has been rebuilt from the ground up using current-gen quality materials and higher resolution geometry. While Rebellion handled the development of the original, TickTock Games has been tasked to build the Redux edition. The remaster will release sometime this year for PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One.
