Rogue Company kicks off its Season One today. This major update for the cross-platform shooter is out on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
Out today is Rogue Company’s newest playable Rogue, Kestrel. She is armed with two new automatic weapons and can unleash self-driven rocket-firing drones with her active ability. Passively, she claims extra cash every time she downs a target.
Additionally, Kestrel is the first to make use of a new perk, Resupply. It causes eliminated enemies to drop a supply kit that refills all purchased gadgets – a most lethal tool in the hands of creative thinkers.
Here’s more background info on Kestrel from the developers:
One of the founding members of Rogue Company, Kestrel has long since retired. But today the elite organization needs her back to even the playing field against the Jackal. Kestrel has answered the call, and not without class.
New Battle Pass
Also out today is the Season One Battle Pass. Unlock fifty cosmetic items radiating danger, attitude or both. Hellfire Protocol Scorch supervises the operations as the ultimate reward.
“Players progress through the Season One Battle Pass simply by playing, with many items being absolutely free,” First Watch Games says. “Among those are account boosters, an all-new type of reward exclusive to the Battle Pass. There is more for anyone who purchases the Premium Pass for 1000 Rogue Bucks, including as an instant reward the aptly named One Shot One Kill outfit for The Fixer, the notorious Atlanta-based sniper.”
In addition, three new high-value bundles can be purchased in-game to dive into Rogue Company’s first season with style.
- Rogue Edition – For $24.99, it unlocks eight playable rogues from last year, plus 500 Rogue Bucks.
- Year 1 Pass – For $24.99 as well, it proactively unlocks all eight Rogues that will join the game in 2021, plus 500 Rogue Bucks.
- Ultimate Edition – For $49.99, it contains both bundles and adds 500 Rogue Bucks on top. That’s 1500 in total.
Improved Ranked system
Both ensuring fair competition and providing the thrills of accomplishment, Rogue Company’s Ranked mode is now made of Tiers split into divisions where players rise and fall based on performance. This structure is complemented by new features such as placement matches, party restrictions, and seasonal rewards.
