Rogue Company has taken the gaming world by storm even in its closed beta version, and now Hi-Rez Studios have unveiled a full content roadmap for players to look at. 

Just like in other popular shooter games like Call of Duty: Warzone or Apex Legends, a content roadmap shows the community where the project is going. Content updates always generate excitement and so too do events, that we know.

What many members of the community may not know, however, is where developers plan on taking Rogue Company. After all, it’s fresh out of the box.

Some have played it and others haven’t been given the chance just yet – waiting on elusive Twitch drops for beta codes.

Thousands of players have already started to drop into Rogue Company’s closed beta.

You can grab the game before its official release date, though, where it will be going free-to-play. To do so, there are three Founder’s Packs – costing between £11.99 and £49.99. These include two characters, a bunch of cosmetics, and of course early access to the game.

If you’re wondering what comes next, though, look no further than the content roadmap.

Rogue Company roadmap plans

Each of these will likely be unveiled as part of content updates, rolled out periodically for the game. Here’s what the roadmap includes:

  • Phase 1: Player Identity, Surrender/Deserter Penalty, and New Map: Vice
  • Phase 2: New Playable Rogue, Ranked, Custom Matches, and Rogue Mastery
  • Phase 3: Equipment Mastery, Battle Pass, and Gameplay Improvements

Here’s how the next few months will be shaping up for Rogue Company in 2020.

Based on the evidence here, it looks very similar to the path Respawn Entertainment took with Apex Legends. There’s everything from a new map in the works, to a new Rogue, and eventually a Battle Pass system as well. All encouraging signs.

It will be interesting to see what Rogue Company has in store for us in the coming months. Competitive players will be looking forward to the Ranked mode, while others may be eyeing cosmetics and weapons later down the road.

Rogue doesn’t have an official launch date at the time of writing. However, we’ll keep you updated on Twitter @RogueCoUpdates. Here, we will be posting news, guides, tips and tricks on the regular to help you out in combat.

It will be available on Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC at launch.

Mr Beast gives away Teslas for Rogue Company wins

Forever finding new ways to share his wealth, Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson offered his friends a new Tesla each — just for winning matches of Hi-Rez’s new first-person shooter Rogue Company.

Mr Beast is among the most popular creators on YouTube, with over 60 million subscribers across his channels, with some of his biggest videos being those where he does huge giveaways, be it money, cars, or even a private island.

Always thinking outside the box, though, Jimmy decided to turn his Rogue Company-sponsored video into yet another giveaway — and he made it a big one.

Earlier in 2020, Mr Beast bought a $700,000 private island and let his friends compete to win it.

At the start of the video, Mr Beast explains that as part of the sponsored video, he will give away a Tesla to each of his friends based on the Rogue Company matches they win.

The first game of the series was for Chandler to win one, the second for Chris, and the third and final matchup of their four-man roster was to win a Tesla for Karl.

The first match was a piece of cake for Beast and co., winning 7-0 to earn Chandler his Tesla, the first to be given away.

The second game was a quick loss, meaning Chris missed out on the new car, before the final match went the team’s way once again, with Karl winning the second Tesla given away in the video.

Obviously, it’s hard enough to maintain focus and not let nerves get the better of you when you’re trying your hardest to win in any game, but when you know you’re possibly getting a brand new Tesla worth tens of thousands of dollars, we can only imagine the pressure ramps up a bit.

Needless to say, everyone wants a friend like Mr Beast, especially if it means free cars just for winning in a video game.
