As a big fan of the original game, I'm very excited for Streets of Rogue 2. Giving you a big unpredictable open world that combines elements of GTA, Deus Ex and various sandbox games. The first trailer was shown off during Gamescom.
You'll be able to explore a lively world where everything is destructible. According to the info I was sent Streets of Rogue 2's procedurally-generated map is more than 100 times the size of a level from the first game. That's…pretty big actually. Exciting! In the game you'll see a nice variety of locations including neon-lit cities, the serene countryside, mysterious caves, sunlit islands, and creepy graveyards.
Check out the trailer:
Last I spoke to developer Matt Dabrowski it was still getting Native Linux support. But we'll know more closer to release.
From the press release: “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!”
It enters Early Access in 2024. You can follow it on Steam.
