In case you missed it, yesterday was Nintendo Direct day. You might have noticed all those people praying for some of the company’s older library to be ported to the Switch and actually getting it. Of course, ports of old Nintendo games aren’t why we’re here. Instead, there was a surprise new game announcement from Hi-Rez — which we’re obviously covering because their history makes us think it will be free-to-play.
The new game — titled Rogue Company — is a multiplayer, cross-platform shooter being developed for the Switch, PC (via the Epic Games Store according to the game’s current site details), Xbox, and PlayStation. It has a rather different feel from most of Hi-Rez’s current library of games, taking on a more realistic style for one thing. That said, it’s still a team-based game — which probably means Hi-Rez is already planning its first tournament.
Not a lot of information has been provided about the game as of yet. The main site is more or less filled with placeholders stating that information on each of the features will come at a later point. The good news is that each section states when the info intended to go there will be made available. There is, however, a trailer — which you can watch below.
