It looks like Rogue Company will be getting a new night time map as part of a future update.
First Watch Games have posted a teaser for Lockdown, a new arena set in the heart of the Venezuelan jungle.
This new Rogue Company map looks as though it will feature a mix of colonial fortress architecture outfitted with modern barricades, cover points, ziplines, and other high tech features.

Currently, the competitive online shooter has eight maps, Lockdown bringing the total to nine when it drops. However, First Watch Games have yet to announce when it will be added to the game.
Last week, Rogue Company was updated to version 1.30, rolling out some minor changes:
Rogue Company Update 1.30 Patch Notes
Players should no longer become immune to damage in Demolition mode
Fixed an issue that was preventing players from reconnecting to a match after a crash or disconnect
Fixed an issue where players could become stuck as a Rogue regardless of who they selected in the match
Players should no longer be able to place the bomb inside of walls and other unintended objects
Fixed an issue where the Redeem Code screen would remain on screen when clicking other parts of the menu or Store.
We went hands-on with Rogue Company when it entered closed beta on consoles a couple of months back. It seems that even in 2020, years after Overwatch first entered the scene, the hero shooter genre is still going strong. Amazon’s Crucible might have been an unfortunate flop though Riot Games have struck gold with Valorant, Hi-Rez providing their own superb alternative to a typically impenetrable brand of FPS. Here’s what we thought:
In short, Rogue Company should definitely be on your radar. It offers a slightly more accessible gateway into this brutal shooter subgenre, but manages to do so without losing any of its strategic depth. Early access is now available when purchasing one of the three founder’s packs though Hi-Rez have confirmed that Rogue Company will be free-to-play at launch.
Rogue Company will be rolling out new features and content as it approaches full release. For more on that, check out the Rogue Company roadmap.
