Hi-Rez Studios' Rogue Company has been bubbling under nicely for some time now, and we've just been treated to some more gameplay footage which shows off the title's brand of free-to-play, 5v5 online shooting action.
The player assumes the role of a 'Rogue', who must drop into various terrorist-filled locations to take down bad guys. Developer First Watch Games is now in the final stages of development, testing the game's cross-play and cross-progression features, as well as balancing weapons, maps and character types.
One of the big selling points of the game is the ability to play against people on other platforms, but you'll also be able to carry across your progress and play with friends on other systems, no matter which platform you choose to use.
Scott Lussier, lead design at First Watch Games, took the time to give a special mention to the Switch version:
I do wanna say, it's pretty amazing to play Rogue Company on a handheld device like the Switch. Being able to play Rogue Company at 60fps as I sit on the couch and my wife is watching another episode of Love Island is a dream come true.
Rogue Company hits Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC this year.
Cant wait to play this game!
Whats the release date?
A third-person, free-to-play shooter from Epic Games.
Didn't we have one on Switch before?
I am glad that my wife does not watch Love Island, would be a nightmare.
Um, no? This is from Hi-Rez, the makers of Paladins
Looks amazing. Already looking forward to this.
Looks good. I wonder what machine that footage is from?
Lol! Wife watches “Love Island” while spouse goes for head-shots in his game while sitting next to her! Maybe they can send email to Blizz and let them know, like WOW, it’s o.k. to have 3rd person (toggle on<>off option) pvp in Overwatch.
@muscpt in Paladins i believe you are able to toggle betwenn 1st and 3rd person in causal, but ranked is forced 1st person view
Oh no... I may have to stop playing Warface if this is good.
I need confirmation of PvE and also PVP modes with only one life for me to get in.
Looks like awesomeness.
I usually play offline but I'm always happy when a free cross-play title makes its way to the Switch! 😁
I may be in the minority here but I've been looking for a worthy replacement to Ghost Recon Phantoms. To me that was the best military team game. My heart still bleeds from it's shutdown
This looks like it may come close so I actually might check it out.
I hope I can buy the DLC directly rather than having to buy set numbers of virtual currency. I know that's asking a lot from an F2P game though. 😔
Im pretty close to being in on this day 1. F2P scares me a lot though. But even not being FPS this seems very close to the COD action I’m looking for.
Oh god. This poor guy.
Me and my partner have two tvs set up in our living room and we game together. She's also more in to things like Law and Order, so my braincells aren't commiting suicide having to subject myself to reality TV and F2P shooters.
@DrDaisy If it is anything like other HiRez titles there will be some dlc that can be direct purchased. For the most part it will be currency but they also tend to give some out for just consistently logging in and have events where you can earn some just from playing
@AlexSora89 This one looks visually appealing though
