The first trailer for Streets of Rogue 2, from developer Matt Dabrowski in partnership with publisher tinyBuild, premiered during the Gamescom: Opening Night Live 2023 pre-showcase. The sequel to the award-winning, 2019 indie is set to debut on Steam Early Access in 2024.
“I’m super excited to finally reveal gameplay footage for Streets of Rogue 2! It’s been a long time coming,” said Matt Dabrowski, creator of the Streets of Rogue franchise. “Streets of Rogue 2 is the culmination of nearly 10 years of ongoing work on the series. It’s a truly massive project that frankly makes the original game look like a prototype. I’m looking forward to getting this into everyone’s hands via Early Access next year!”
Players will get to immersive themselves in a sandbox journey where fun and mayhem have been dialed up to eleven. Streets of Rogue 2 promises to allow players to enjoy the ultimate freedom of choice solo or with friends. Playing together in local or online co-op modes and create the most ridiculous, chaotic experiences by blending a deep, endlessly replayable roguelike formula with RPG elements and deeply engaging sim creativity.
Additionally, you’ll be able to choose from dozens of character classes with distinct traits and play styles ranging from cops, farmers, and hackers, to ninjas, gorillas with machine guns, robots, and scientists. The main goal: overthrow a corrupt president and take over the huge, procedurally generated county by any means necessary. Hire a mercenary army and plan a coup. Stage a zombie virus outbreak. Break into the mayor’s office and take everyone hostage. Build a farm and become a business force to be reckoned with. Summon ancient vampires and bribe them to help out. Or just chill out, enjoy the good vibes, and totally ignore the main quest.
But what’s zombies without an arsenal. Players will be able to pick up a variety of weapons and gadgets, including shrink rays, bear traps, and banana peels, mix and match styles, and create a new brand of mischief in a massive playground where revolutionists can be whoever they want.
Finally, you’ll be able to explore a lively world where everything is destructible. Streets of Rogue 2’s procedurally-generated map is more than 100 times the size of a level from the first game. Visit a vast variety of locations that includes neon-lit cities, serene countrysides, mysterious caves, sunlit islands, and even creepy graveyards. Take up on a ton of crazy side activities, engage with its quirky inhabitants controlled by advanced AI, and create a unique adventure each time you play.
Streets of Rogue 2 will launch on Steam Early Access in 2024. For more information, visit the Streets of Rogue 2 official website.
