San Francisco, CA (January 11, 2006) -- Eidos Interactive, one of the worldâs leading developers and publishers of entertainment software, today confirms that ROGUE TROOPERâ¢, a futuristic tactical action game based on the 2000 AD comic strip, will be released in North America in Spring 2006 for the PlayStationÂ®2 computer entertainment system, XboxÂ® video game system from Microsoft and PC.
"Rogue Trooperâ¢ has the attitude, the artillery and the technique to deliver a high quality third person tactical action game experience to players. We're delighted to be working with Eidos on bringing Rogue Trooperâ¢ to gamers everywhere." Jason Kingsley, CEO and Creative Director, Rebellion.
A Genetic Infantryman (G.I.), Rogue is one of an elite regiment of biologically-engineered clone troops, created to overcome Nu Earthâs hostile atmosphere and fight, unhindered, against the brutal Nort War machine. After witnessing the betrayal and annihilation of his entire regiment at the Quartz Zone Massacre, Rogue has gone AWOL, determined to hunt down the traitor general who sent his brothers-in-arms to their deaths.
ROGUE TROOPERâ¢ blends intense third person action and next generation stealth, as Rogue wreaks revenge armed with the very latest experimental weaponry. Rogueâs arsenal offers him a unique advantage over his
opponents; encoded bio-chips containing the digitized personalities of his fallen comrades are implanted in his gun (Gunnar), helmet (Helm) and backpack (Bagman), each offering their full military experience at the playerâs fingertips.
Rogue Trooper features intense online gameplay modes, where gamers experience up to four-player co-operative gameplay in all new maps.
