Glimpse will be joining the existing roster, opting for more of a stealthy approach compared to her comrades. You can find more details on this new Rogue further down.

Rogue Company update 1.88 has a lot more in store for fans of this team-based tactical shooter, giving us a taste of what’s to come in 2022. Developer First Watch Games has promised that new content and events will deploy throughout the year. However, the studio is also dedicated to refining the core game, kickstarting its “Project Saint” initiative, focused on quality of life improvements.

If you haven’t played Rogue Company since launch then now’s a great time to dive back into the action. After trialling Battle Zone for a limited time at the end of 2021, this battle royale mode has become a more permanent addition, adding even more ways to play this great third person shooter.

As for Glimpse, here’s an overview of what she brings to the game:

As a child, Glimpse was forced into a secret genetic modification program. She eventually escaped the facility that held her captive with the help of stolen cloaking technology. Scarred by her childhood trauma, she vowed to stop those responsible for creating her and has been hunting ever since.

Weapons: Assault Rifles (ARs) and SMGs

Starting Weapons: Nightshade AR and Knight SMG

Secondary: P12K Pistol

Melee: Kukri

Gadget (New): Pop Smoke Grenade – New variant of smoke grenade. When thrown, the Pop Smoke Grenade will erupt in smoke immediately upon making contact with a surface. Ideal for placing smokescreens quickly and/or in places you normally couldn’t; Semtex Grenades.

Abilities:

  • Camouflage – Activate your suit’s camouflage and become much harder to see, for as long as your energy supply lasts. Moving faster and/or taking damage makes you easier to see.

Glimpse’s Camouflage has 3 levels of invisibility based on how fast she moves.

  • Passive: Sleight

Your genetically engineered senses are dramatically heightened, allowing you to periodically detect enemies around you.

Perks:

  • Nimble Hands
  • Hunter
  • Padded Steps
  • Stalker
  • Life Drain
  • Tracker Rounds

When we first played Rogue Company at launch back in 2020, we were left pretty impressed. A third person hero shooter with a tactical edge, it has received numerous updates and expansion since launch, introducing a slew of maps, characters, and modes. Better yet, it’s still completely free-to-play.

Rogue Company is available to download and play on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. And yes, there’s crossplay!
