(Last Updated On: March 1, 2017)

Rebellion's 11-year-old Rogue Trooper is making a return to form as a remastered third-person shooter for PC, PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch.

The studio announced that the game from more than a decade ago will be available for purchase for home consoles and PC and that they're working with Tiktok Games to get the title up and out for a newer generation of gamer.

They didn't have much to share about the game based on a comic book from 2000 AD, but they did let loose a teaser trailer that shows the logo and promises that the game will be for the aforementioned platforms.

I remember Rogue Trooper from long ago and far away. The game was actually pretty decent to be a low-budget third-person shooter.

Players took on the role of the blue-skinned Rogue Trooper, he ends up taking command of his friends who fall in the battle early in the game, utilizing various skills to help him along during combat. It's true about what they mention in the teaser above... Rogue Trooper as a game was actually much farther along feature-wise than many other games back in the day and is still considered to be more feature-rich than many titles released these days.

It's actually a good thing that an old title more than a decade old is getting remastered because young gamers will get to realize just how much gaming has regressed in recent years as studios continue to put more money and time into social justice politics instead of making their games fun. Rogue Trooper, despite its flaws, was a generally fun game. The wall-hugging worked, the weapons were decent and the combat was satisfying. Back in 2006 that scored the game a real 6/10, but in today's climate where you barely get any decent gameplay mechanics and eight hours worth of fan-fiction quality storytelling laced with talking points from a regressive propaganda manifesto, I'm sure many gamers will easily consider Rogue Trooper to be a solid 8/10 by comparison.

The don't have a release date, but you can expect to see the remastered version of Rogue Trooper Redux become available for PC, PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch.
