Host of Summer Game Fest, Geoff Keighley, was at it again bringing a preview of great gaming experiences to audiences around the world. The July Developer Showcase profiled titles from studios both big and small over a plethora of platforms. Here are the highlights from the show, including a few titles making their world debuts.
Summer Game Fest Rogue Company
There were a few surprises during the showcase, but one of the biggest was Rogue Company. The game dropped a great sizzle reel while simultaneously releasing its beta live on the stream.
Scott Lussier from First Watch Games joined Keighley to discuss all the key features around Rogue Company. The title is a team-based multiplayer shooter that melds action gameplay with the tactical shooter genre.
The full game is coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Out of the gate it will support cross play and progression. This means you can play anyone on any supported platform and also progress the same way. Lussier also revealed that the title will hit 60 FPS across all platforms, including the Nintendo Switch.
During the reveal we also got a look at two playable character types out of a possible 12. The game features an ever-growing roster of mercenaries, game modes, weapons and gadgets. Lussier noted the Rogue Company experience will continue to evolve over the next few months. Keep it locked on Best Buy Blog for more on the game as it breaks.
