Tactical third-person shooter Rogue Company is out now on PC and consoles



Developed by First Watch Games and published by Hi-Rez Studios, Rogue Company has put its feet on the much-coveted doorsteps of what is the team-based multiplayer shooting scene. Check out the cinematic launch trailer here!

The competitive online shooter space is fiercely contested with the likes of CS:GO, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege to just name a few. Hi-Rez’s Rogue Company has an ace up its sleeve though by going the third-person shooter route instead of first-person and offering full cross-play and cross-progression support across all platforms.

But there is much more to the shooter than just its viewpoint. As a hero shooter, the cast of characters players can choose from not only varies wildly in terms of looks but actual gameplay. Each of the six current Rogues has its own arsenal of weapons, gadgets, skills, and abilities that demand tactical ingenuity apart from just twitch reflexes.

Each Rogue is equipped with a unique arsenal of weapons they can bring to the battlefield that can be upgraded and modified between each round:

• Primary Weapons: These are the big guns. Whether you choose a mid-range assault rifle or an up-close-and-personal pump shotgun, this weapon will allow you to define your playstyle.
• Secondary Weapons: Every superhero needs a sidekick. Secondary weapons are smaller caliber weapons that can be swapped to at a moment’s notice to finish off an enemy agent or to help avoid the reload penalty.
• Gadgets: What would a world class hero be without a selection of high-tech gadgets at their disposal? As a Rogue, you can carry both offensive and defensive gadgets into battle that will help you create distractions, defend yourself, or cause a bit of mayhem.
• Perks: Tailor your playstyle as well as you tailor your outfits. Perks help fill in the gaps of your arsenal with special passive bonuses that will help to even the odds against enemy agents.
• Abilities: Each Rogue also brings something unique to the table. Abilities can be the difference between victory and defeat, if used wisely. Explosive daggers, shield walls, and barbed wire traps are just a few examples of special abilities that Rogues might bring to the mission.

The shooter is out now in as a ‘Closed Beta’ since the developer is promising to improve the game going forward with feedback from the player base. Rogue Company is available right now on all consoles and PC, with later being exclusively available on the Epic Games Store.
