Rogue Stormers has had a rocky start to life as a game. Black Forest Games were forced to change the name of the title, initially monikered Diesel Stormers. The developer changed the name of the title to avoid copyright issues from a well-known clothing brand. Now the title, by the same team who brought you the Giana Sisters games, has experienced a slight delay to it’s Steam release date.
What’s the reasoning behind this extra delay? Well, Black Forest are polishing the title up, nice and bright, ready for a full release. This may then have a knock-on effect for the Xbox One release of this gun and run rogue-like shooter. When could we expect a console release of Rogue Stormers? Black Forest Games are being more than a little bit coy on that one and it hasn’t actually been announced yet.
Black Forest Games’ MD, Adrian Goersch;
We’re using the extra time to make sure Rogue Stormers launches with maximum polish. Our Early Access players know exactly how much content there is in the game and with the final release we’ve added even more. Releasing Rogue Stormers with sub-par game balance was simply not acceptable to us.
This in itself is a little disappointing as I, for one, am looking forward to getting my grubby hands on Rogue Stormers.
The game will feature a four player online or local multiplayer as well as a single player mode. There will be five character classes to guide through procedurally generated levels all featuring random enemy placement. Nothing will be the same as the previous playthrough. Deal with eldritch horrors, orcs, goblins and battlegates bursting with weapons. You’ll also have the opportunity to set of chain-reaction interactions with the environment that may kill both yourself and your enemies.

Black Forest Games haven’t revealed a date for release for Rogue Stormers on Xbox One yet, but we’ll let you know when they do.
