Rogue Company: Season 1 to be launched with new TPS and season pass
Announced in July 2020, Rogue Company was rather discreet until its open beta last October. At that time, we were able to approach the title, and Aubin had judged that, without reinventing the wheel, the formula seemed efficient and well-calibrated.
Today, Hi-Rez Studios announces season 1, accompanied by Kestel, a brand new character. She is presented as the Rogue Company’s confounder, an organization from which she moved away before returning to face the Jackals’ threat.
On the skills and equipment side, Kestrel has two automatic weapons and can send drones firing missiles. She can also benefit from a passive skill, allowing her to gain an additional bounty for each elimination. Finally, she can use the Supply resource, allowing her to generate a kit from downed enemies.
This new character comes with a Battle Pass containing around fifty rewards. Anyone can level up and get Account Boosters, but Hi-Rez has also provided a Premium Battle Pass costing 1,000 Rogue Bucks.
In the latter, players will notably find the One-Shot outfit for Fixer. The developers also announced that Rogue Company now has a Ranked mode, divided into Ranks and divisions. Finally, Hi-Rez unveils three new premium packs:
- The Mercenary Edition (€ 4.99) – Unlocks eight Mercenaries from last year, plus 500 Rogue Bucks.
- The Year 1 Pass (€ 24.99) – Unlocks in advance all eight mercenaries coming out this year, plus 500 Rogue Bucks.
- The Ultimate Edition (€ 49.99) – Contains the previous two packs and gives 500 more Rogue Bucks (or 1500 in total)
Rogue Company is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The title is also available in an optimized version of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series. Stay tuned for the next update.
