Rogue Trooper Redux is out now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This HD remaster heralds the return of the blue hero from the 2000AD comics. It’s been 11 years since Rogue Trooper was first released, and the genetically manufactured super soldier makes his return in this revitalised version of the cult shooter. The campaign in Redux begins following the betrayal of Rogue by his superiors, and players take control of the angry blue lad as he sets off on revenge with his gun in hand.
Rogue Trooper Redux returns with HD visuals, remodelled assets, new special effects, and even dynamic lighting. That should mean the game won’t look like it’s 11 years old. The work hasn’t stopped there however, and there’s been some tweaks made to the original game’s controller layout, the addition of some more difficulty levels, as well as an improved cover system.
When it was originally released back in 2006, Rogue Trooper was on the receiving end of a couple of BAFTA nominations for Best Character and Best Story. This was probably because of the intense story of betrayal and revenge that runs throughout. It was a real tearjerker.
