My sources in the industry have leaked another teaser screenshot.



I see it has quite an advanced player versus player mode:

Rogue trooper remaster on One, PS4 , PC and Switch

I thought you were joking, but yup confirmed for Switch (and others)

Okay. I should have read further down the thread before posting.

Not as good news as a sequel perhaps, but then, who knows what would be added?

The game mechanics were always fantastic, but with a few extra levels maybe and tarted up graphics, this will be a must have!  :)

Great news! Never got around to playing it back in the day. I'll definitely get it when I get a Switch.

ISTR trying to play it but spending ten minutes repeatedly falling off a cliff very early on, giving up and never playing it again… I think I flogged to Bolt in the end!

Not sure about its pacing for a multiplayer experience, but otherwise this still holds up pretty well.  Upgrade to 4K textures and 60fps and this could pass as a modern release.

I'm not so sure,  I felt it was a little clunky at the time of original release. For me, it always played like a gears of war clone.  I did enjoy it though and will reserve judgement until the actual release.  Whether I buy the game for a third time remains to be seen, though I would always try and support anything 2000ad.

Now, a Strontium Dog game would be an instant purchase, as would a dredd game set in the movie universe.

Rogue Trooper came out before Gears of War.  Rebellion take note: if you want your cover-based shooters to be more successful in future, stop putting female characters in them.

I love Rogue Trooper - incredibly playable 3rd person shooter with a compelling story (OBVS). Would love to see it all shiny lookin' and new.

They were both released in the same year but rogue did indeed beat gears to it. They must have been in development at the same time.  Very similar game play, but the sheer polish of gears has better weathered the passage of time. Hopefully this update will be a little more than a graphics upgrade.

To be fair Rogue was a previous gen game (PS2/Xbox) and Gears was nextgen (360).

This is very exciting! I have never played the original (hadn't discovered thrill power at the time) so I will get this without a doubt. What kind of multiplayer mode did this game have? It would be great to have a Call of Duty type multiplayer with customizable Genetic Infantrymen and Norts.

Yay! Another excuse for me to get a Switch.  I had to get Tiny Tips to complete the Train/Hoppa level for me but did the rest of the game myself. It was great.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I really enjoyed the game too. Very atmospheric in places and the fact that every Nort trooper looks like every other Nort trooper (and ditto the Southers) worked much better in it's favour than the ranks of similar citizens in Dredd vs Death.

My only real gripe with the game was that it was left open-ended.  All that hard grind and the Traitor General still gets out alive. I suppose they wanted to have something to do in a sequel, but it just made all the slog before it seem pointless.

Jim, i'd forgotten all about that!

I did complete the game on the PS2, and even spent some time working on the multiplayer options with mini-bolt, but for some reason I could never get to grips with the Wii version, and I even got the lightgun accessory to help me pretend I was using Gunnar!
