02/28/2017 - Rogue Trooper Redux Coming to Nintendo Switch

The most feared soldier on Nu Earth is back in business! ROGUE TROOPER REDUX will bring 2000 AD®'s blue-skinned GI to Nintendo Switch™, PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC.

Watch the teaser trailer >>

In 2006, the original ROGUE TROOPER set the benchmark for video game adaptations of comic books. Developed by Rebellion®, the studio behind Sniper Elite 4 and owners of British comic book powerhouse 2000 AD®, it was widely acclaimed for bringing the cult sci-fi strip to life in an authentic, tactical, cover-based third-person shooter that debuted before the genre became the gaming staple it is today.

ROGUE TROOPER REDUX will remaster the Rebellion® classic for a new generation of players, taking them to the chem-blasted battlefields of Nu Earth. Rogue, a bio-engineered Genetic Infantryman (or "GI") immune to the planet's poisonous atmosphere, is the last soldier standing against the colonial Nort regime. Carrying three fallen comrades as biochips in his equipment, Rogue is a one-unit squad of death and destruction, and he only has one thing on his mind - REVENGE.

ROGUE TROOPER REDUX is being developed in partnership with experienced UK studio TickTock Games, making it the first 2000 AD® game developed outside of Rebellion®. The game also marks the first of potentially many externally developed 2000 AD® games after announcing it will open up its wealth of iconic IP - such as Judge Dredd and Sláine - to other developers.

02/27/2017 - Highly Promising VR Game Sairento VR Comes to Steam
Sairento VR Gives Players an Action Packed, Slow Motion Mayhem Fighting Experience

Play as a Highly Skilled Cyber Ninja Warrior with an Arsenal of Deadly Weapons.

Sairento VR is a mission-driven, first-person hybrid shooter and sword fighting VR role-playing game set in a reimagined future Japan. The game is available in early access on
Steam and slated for a full version release August 2017.

"We created Sairento VR as a tribute to action-loving fans who want to experience the iconic "bullet-time" scenes from The Matrix, blended with the slow-motion mayhem of the Max Payne game series, all while looking and feeling as badass as the Bride from Kill Bill." says Aldric Chang, founder of Mixed Realms.

“Honestly, this is one of the best VR games I’ve ever played.” Sam -NODE on Youtube

The Gameplay

In Sairento, you play as a member of the Silent Ones - a righteous but covert organization of seemingly ordinary people who practice the long forsaken code and martial arts of the ancient samurais and ninjas. You are tasked with uncovering the sinister secret behind other members of the Silent Ones turning into crazed nano-infected shells of their former self and in the process, fight your way through multitudes of your past comrades.

Crafted painstakingly to provide an engaging and visually stunning first-person swordfighting and gunplay - expect awesome weaponry, intuitive controls, challenging levels, menacing enemies and beautiful environments in your fight to restore order to the world. 

Players can experience the thrill of leaping 15 feet into the air, slowing time down while blasting away at enemies before landing to deliver a lethal smite on another with their katanas.

The combat system was tested rigorously amongst gamers, the development team, family, friends and people practically dragged off the streets, to ensure an intuitive and immersive experience. Get transformed into a mighty warrior with an arsenal of ancient weapons with a futuristic twist and engage an endless horde of enemies across different locations.

Game Highlights

Engage enemies using our innovative combat system, allowing you to fight in slow motion and parry incoming projectiles like a boss.

Cut your enemies down with a futuristic katana, blast them to smithereens with good old fashioned guns or pierce them with shurikens fired from your shuriken gun.

Fancy hurling blade beams from your katana? You can do so by upgrading your abilities and weapons as you accumulate experience from completing missions and destroying enemies.

Leap 15 feet into the air, perform double jumps, run across walls or slide across the floor like only a true action superstar could.

Fight enemies ranging from mutated samurais and devious ninjas to creepy robot geishas and hulking sumos.

Traverse a reimagined futuristic Japan in locations like a temple, atop a speeding train and other exotic locations.

Submit yourself to a visual treat fighting an assortment of enemies with smart AI.
