The first announcement at today's Developer Showcase is the surprise launch of the multiplayer shooter Rogue Company. First Watch Game's newest title is available now on all major consoles and PC via the Epic Games Store.
The early access release trailer shows Ronin, the newest member of the titular company, and DMA doing some shopping for new weapons and promptly testing them out when some enemy goons raid the store. The trailer doesn't give much other than the fact that the game is now in Early Access, but Scott Lussier from First Watch Games, a sister studio to Smite studio Titan Forge Games, shows up after to give us more details on the game's big launch.
Rogue Company is a third-person round-based multiplayer shooter that brings a unique blend of action gameplay and tactical shooter. As a character-based game in the vein of games like Overwatch, players will have access to 12 rogues at launch. Each of the rogues is a member of the titular company that "go where the government can't go." Scott emphasized how important it was fo the team to make sure players can enjoy the game no matter the platform. Which is why Rogue Company features cross-platform play and progression for all consoles. We also saw a little bit of Rogue Company at today's Nintendo Mini Direct, where First Watch Games reported that their game will be able to run at 60 FPS at every platform, including the Switch, whether players are playing it handheld or docked.
Rogue Company enters Early Access today on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
