Today First Watch Games and Hi-Rez Studios have announced a new Rogue will be added to Rogue Company in addition to two new games modes. Switchblade will be joining the roster of the growing 20 rogues. Along with this players can now have even more hectic battles with the new 6v6 games modes.
6v6 Modes Come to Rogue Company
- King of the Hill brings five minute rounds of intense capture-and-control gameplay to nine maps. Each team must control the hill to gain points; first to 150 points wins.
- Playing out in rounds of twelve minutes across twelve maps, Team DeathMatch sees two teams of six gunning for the first to reach 50 eliminations. Team cash drops happen after every elimination, with players scrambling to secure the cash to give them the edge
Who is Switchblade?
On the run since childhood from mercenaries of unknown origin, Switchblade has become a master of survival; self-reliance imposed on her by necessity. She doesn’t let anyone get too close – most who’ve tried wanted to either kill or kidnap her. Those that genuinely cared for her have ended up taking a bullet. For Switchblade, joining Rogue Company is a temporary gig. The Director promised they’ll find out who’s been chasing her all these years; in exchange for her services, of course
Executive Producer Chris Larson had the following to say about the update:
Players are going to love Switchblade’s powerful crowd clearing abilities The one-two punch of Chaos Launcher plus movement boost mean they’ll be forcing enemies into the open and shaking up the combat. Bring her into the new 6v6 King of the Hill and Team DeathMatch modes and they’ll see what a difference she can make
