SCi Games is pleased to announce their new game due for release in autumn 2005, ROGUE TROOPER(TM).
Set on the war-torn, poisoned atmosphere of Nu Earth, ROGUE TROOPERTM is a genetic infantryman (G.I.), one of an elite squad of biologically-engineered clone troops, created to overcome the planet's hostile atmosphere, unhindered in their fight against the enemy, the Nort Republic. After witnessing the betrayal and annihilation of his squad at the Quartz Zone Massacre, Rogue has gone AWOL, determined to hunt down the traitor who sent his brothers-in-arms to their deaths.
Armed with the latest experimental weapons, Rogue's arsenal offers him one extra special advantage over his opponents; encoded bio-chips containing the digitised personalities of his fallen comrades are stored in his gun (Gunnar), helmet (Helm) and backpack (Bagman), each one offering their unique expertise and assistance, allowing Rogue to strategically outwit a sophisticated enemy.
ROGUE TROOPERTM is a mix of intense 3rd person action and next generation stealth elements, with complex line-of-sight AI, multiple game paths, full tactical use of your bio-chip operated equipment and both single- and multiplayer online gameplay.
Developed by UK developer REBELLION, and first appearing in the REBELLION owned 2000AD comic in 1981, ROGUE TROOPERTM rapidly established itself as one the most popular characters of all time and has appeared continually in the comic for over 22 years. This wealth of experience has added an unrivalled depth on which to base the game
ROGUE TROOPERTM is scheduled for release in autumn 2005.
