Rogue Company is a tactical third-person multiplayer shooter that puts players in the shoes of various top-secret, elite mercenaries from around the world. As these mercenaries, players will jump into a match with their weapon of choice, and take part in various game modes to come out as the victor. Unlike typical multiplayer shooters, though, Rogue Company plays much more like tactical first-person shooters such as Counter-Strike or Valorant.

At face value, Rogue Company is very much a tactical third-person shooter that plays similarly to games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, or the recently released Valorant. Before the start of a game, players will select from a handful of rogue agents, each with their own unique abilities and look. Then, players will have to spend on weapons before a game starts, with kills and objectives being completed earning you more money for the following the rounds.

While Rogue Company's gameplay is very similar to other tactical first-person shooters, Rogue Company also incorporates many features usually seen in battle royale titles. Things like being downed by an enemy, reviving allies, and gliding into the map to start a game are all included in Rogue Company, and give it a nice change of pace from standard tactical shooters.

Is Rogue Company free-to-play?

One of the biggest pluses to Rogue Company is that the game fully supports cross-play across all of its platforms, so players on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and even Nintendo Switch can all play with each other. Even better, Rogue Company also features cross-progression across all systems, so players won't have to worry about leveling up their characters and accounts multiple times.
