Watch the teaser trailer down below:

 

Rogue Trooper Redux will remaster the Rebellion classic for a new generation of players, taking them to the chem-blasted battlefields of Nu Earth. Rogue, a bio-engineered Genetic Infantryman (or “GI”) immune to the planet’s poisonous atmosphere, is the last soldier standing against the colonial Nort regime. Carrying three fallen comrades as biochips in his equipment, Rogue is a one-unit squad of death and destruction, and he only has one thing on his mind – Revenge.

Many people might not be too familiar with Rogue Trooper, however, thanks to Jason Kingsley, creative director and co-founder of Rebellion, took to the PlayStation Blog to give a little backstory of the character, story, and comic book.

Check it out down below:

Who is Rogue Trooper?

Created by beloved writer Gerry Finley-Day and groundbreaking artist Dave Gibbons, Rogue Trooper has been a comic book mainstay since 1981 and has even included contributions from Alan Moore, writer of Watchmen and V for Vendetta.

Rogue Trooper tells the tale of the sole-surviving Genetic Infantryman (or “GI”), a blue-skinned, bio-engineered soldier on a mission to avenge his fallen comrades across the blasted, chemical-poisoned planet of Nu Earth in a remote corner of the galaxy.

Why does he fight?

Bred for war by the Southers in their endless conflict with the colonial Nort regime, the GIs were the only troops that could fight on Nu Earth’s surface without respirators or sealed HAZMAT suits, giving them a huge advantage in combat.

Aware of this threat, the Norts conspired with the Traitor General to set a deadly trap for the GIs which later became known as the infamous “Quartz Zone Massacre.”

What makes Nu Earth so special?

A planet-wide conflict across petrified forests and polluted plains, a yawning black hole that dominates every skyline… I’m not sure there have been many more dramatic stages for a war story!
