The latest Rogue Company update finally adds multiple skin, cosmetic, and emote options to the in-game store for players to collect and show off.

On September 2 Hi-Rez dropped a new “Retail Therapy” update that finally updated the in-game shop with a rotating selection of Rogue and weapon skins, wingsuits, and emotes, along with a number of other changes.

Rogue Company already has some special cosmetics, but before this patch, they were only available through the various Founder’s Packs, which cost money as opposed to the majority of players who go for a free key.

As you would expect, the new skins and other goodies will require actual money to purchase, but the good news is that they will be considerably cheaper than shelling out for any of the Founder’s Pack levels.

Different rarities of skins will be priced differently in the shop.

On the first day following the update, new skins for Vy, Dallas, Lancer, and Scorch are all available in the shop. There’s no mention in-game or in the patch notes on how long each skin will stick around, so if one catches your eye, you might not want to wait.

There are three levels of rarity, Uncommon costing 500, Rare costing 1,200, and Legendary costing 2,000. Naturally, there are two Uncommons available at a time, with only one each of the remaining categories.

So far, it’s only been Founder’s Pack members that have gotten to show off snazzy different looks, so it will be nice to start seeing a bit more variety from match to match and give us more ways to customize our favorite Rogues.

Uncommon outfits provide basic recolors, while the other levels make bigger changes.

In addition to the new looks, we can also unlock weapon & wingsuit skins, and emotes. Like with the Rogue cosmetics, it’s currently unknown how quickly these items will rotate in and out of the shop, so don’t wait if you really want one.

One of the big updates from the Sept. 2 patch, besides all of the new cosmetics, was to make Extraction available full-time instead of just as an LTM. For all the latest Rogue Company news be sure to follow us on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates.

Rogue Company teases new pics of Dr Disrespect’s map The Arena

Hi-Rez devs have apparently moved at a blistering pace to build and fill out Dr. Disrespect’s custom map called ‘The Arena’ for Rogue Company, and new images make it seem like it will be ready to play before too long.

The saga all started back in August when Doc tried out Rogue Company for the first time. Impressed with the fast-paced multiplayer FPS, the streaming star half-jokingly suggested Hi-Rez devs should let him design a map for the game.

Developers were immediately on board, as you would be too if you got a similar offer from one of the biggest names on YouTube and a former CoD map designer like the Two Time.

Since then we’ve seen a steady drip of content showcasing the development of The Arena, which has basically become a playable version of Dr Disrespect’s elaborate stream backdrop, complete with a gift shop that we finally got to see on Oct. 12.

The Champion’s Club Pro Gear Shop is one of those video game locations you just wish were real.

Any true multi-million (or billion) dollar sporting complex needs a place to sell officially branded memorabilia, and The Champion’s Club Arena is no different.

The Pro-Gear shop might seem like it could use a few more racks of clothing and merch, but remember it does have to be a playable and easy to navigate map as well.

One area we’ve seen a bit of already is the Arcade, but a new exterior shot could provide another new clue to the map as well. In the image below, the sky appears to be red, which would make this map fit canonically into Doc’s stream.

If you look past the Arcade sign, the sky above the Arena seems to be red.

You’ve got to give the people something to look at as they walk in to find their seats too, and the main entrance area to the inside of The Arena is decked out with Doc’s face and branding.

We really can’t wait to try Doc’s custom Rogue Company map out.

These latest images from Hi-Rez are some of the most detailed we’ve seen yet, and could very well be a sign that The Arena will be coming out sometime soon.

When exactly is tough to say, but Rogue Company has been seemingly getting constant updates over the last few months, so stick with us on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates for all the latest news, patches, and more.
