Rogue Stormers

It’s been through a few months of intense development as well as a name change, but finally,┬áRogue Stormers developer, Black Forest Games is in a position to announce a release date.

So, wait, Rogue Stormers? Well it’s an action-packed 3D co-op platform-shooter. It’s got roguelike and RPG elements with crazy graphics, allowing up to 4 players in on the action at once.

The game will combine run’n’gun gameplay in the Metal Slug style, offering twin-stick controls in an online or couch co-op mode of play. Ravensdale is under threat by the ultimate evil. In order to beat him you must fight your way through seven increasingly challenging levels. If you die, you’ll be back at square one, although any earned perks and packs are yours for keeps, making it a little easier to get back to where you expired.

The game is designed in such a way that allows the levels to be layered and combined to create meaningful combinations with infinite replayability. There will be an ever growing cast of enemies, hazards and loot layered within each chunk, generating incredible diversity. Rogue Stormers will feature tons of different upgrades and weapons that will cause each new session to play in a unique fashion, depending on which weapons or upgrades you pick and get.

Five character classes with their own skills and base weapons are included and as you delve into the vast undercity of Ravensdale, you’ll learn more and more about the history, it’s citizens and the tragic backgrounds of the five heroes who took arms to save it. How you tackle this sprawling city will be the key to saving Ravensdale.

Will you go toe-to-toe with your enemies, block attacks or simply blast everything to smithereens? It’ll be completely up to you when Rogue Stormers comes to your Xbox One from the 7th of October.

Black Forest Games have been busy ahead of the release of Rogue Stormers, playing the game and recording themselves having fun while doing so. Head on over to their YouTube channel for more, or watch the first one, below.


Rogue Stormers release delayed

Rogue Stormers

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.
