Coming to all platforms this year.

Best known for third-person MOBA Smite, Hi-Rez Studios and First Watch Games' new title Rogue Company is expected this year and is promising plenty of nifty features including cross-play at launch.

Here's everything we know about the third-person shooter. 

What Is Rogue Company?

Rogue Company is a multiplayer shooter coming to all major platforms next year. Rogue Company actually refers to a company/organisation, this is a top-secret syndicate of elite mercenaries located around the globe. According to the game's official website, these mercenaries are described as "indispensable to solving the world's deadliest and most challenging missions".

As a rogue company mercenary, players will grab their weapon of choice and dive into iconic locations to compete online in various PVP game modes or team up with friends to take on PVE challenges.

Characters offer unique abilities, like barricades and silenced footsteps, and a former Halo World Champion, Scot Lussier, is the game's lead designer.
