Bethesda, the developers of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, have unveiled their latest title. Rogue Warrior is an FPS which Bethesda hope will be able to challenge the Ghost Recon series in the counter-terrorism genre. The game will be powered by Unreal Engine 3 and is being developed by Zombie Studios, the team behind Xbox title Shadow Ops: Red Mercury.
Bethesda and Zombie have big plans for the multiplayer aspect of the game. According to Xbox 360: The Official Magazine, in which the game is officially revealed, the game will include four-player co-op through Xbox Live as well as support for 24 player battles.
But that’s not all. When playing in Multiplayer, the two opposing teams will be able to “build” the map which the game is played on. Each map is made of three different sections. Both teams choose one section of the map and the final centre section is randomly chosen. You won’t know which section has been picked by the opposite team until you join the game. The insipration behind this, say Bethesda, is to prevent players from getting bored playing the same maps over and over again.
No release date has been set for Rogue Warrior other than 2007. Look out for more on the game in the coming months.
