Hi-Rez has announced the long-awaited release of Rogue Company Season 1 along with a new rogue, map, and more.

Rogue Company Season 1 is on its way, bringing with it a new rogue, Battle Pass, new map, and more content to look forward to.

Rogue Company made a splash with its closed beta release in 2020. Streamers were enjoying the third-person tactical shooter and fans were lining up to join the fight.

Since then, Hi-Rez has been steadily adding content to the game in the form of new maps, rogues, and cosmetics – most notably, the Dr. Disrespect crossover that remains in the shop to this day.

Fans of the game had been waiting for the start of a new season, with ranked coming out of beta and the promise of a Battle Pass. On January 7, we finally heard some concrete news about all of this and more.

Rogue Company Season 1

Hi-Rez released a developer update for all of their major games on January 7, with some of the biggest news coming to Rogue Company fans. According to the developers, Rogue Company has four seasons planned for 2021, with the first one coming this February.

This new season will feature a new game mode, map, rogue, and competitive reset as it comes out of the beta phase.

2v2 Wingman

The 2v2 Wingman mode will be coming to Rogue ahead of the start of Season 1. This mode will feature new, smaller maps that cater more towards smaller team sizes.

We don’t have a ton of new information about how this mode will work, but we’ll know soon enough when it releases next week.

New rogue: Kestrel

Kestral will be the next rogue to enter the lineup. She’s a fashion icon from India with abilities that focus on drones and explosives.

We’ll learn more about the next Rogue Company character ahead of Season 1. For now, all we have is a backstory and general overview of her kit.

New Map: The Hollows

The Hollows is “the first of many maps” that Hi-Rez is working on for 2021. The map will be included in the normal game modes along with an exclusive LTM.

Like the new Rogue, we should learn more about The Hollows as Season 1 approaches.

Rogue Company Season 1 Battle Pass

Ever since Fortnite took the world by storm, developers have been favoring Battle Passes as a way to offer players cosmetics. Rogue Company is no different, with a Battle Pass releasing at the start of Season 1.

The Battle Pass will offer sprays, emotes, wraps, and skins for different rogues as you progress through the tiers. Like most other games, players will be able to unlock free rewards along with premium paid rewards in the Battle Pass.

Rogue Company is also revamping the competitive system and introducing tiers to the game. The Season 1 launch follows the pre-season beta program that was widely successful for the competitive player base.

We’ll keep you posted on all of the latest Rogue Company news as Season 1 draws closer.

Terminator set in Fortnite

As Fortnite Season 5 comes closer to its end, new crossovers are being added to the Battle Royale. Now, Epic Games have brought along the T-800 and Sarah Connor as part of a new Terminator skin set.

Fortnite has seen more than its fair share of crossovers throughout the past few years. We’ve seen additions from Halo, God of War, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and many others. Epic Games have now brought another new addition to the Battle Royale.

Less than a week after the arrival of The Predator, the developers have added brand new Terminator-themed skins to the game. You can choose to play as either the T-800 or Sarah Connor, and here’s how you can get your hands on them.

How to get T-800 and Sarah Connor Fortnite skins

You don’t need to do any special quest or challenge in order to get these skins. You can get yourself the Fortnite x Terminator crossover set by spending some V-Bucks in the Item Shop.

You can pick up the Sarah Connor skin for 1,800, or pay 1,500 to get the T-800. Alternatively, you can purchase the entire bundle for 2,800, which may sound like a lot but you’ll also get some great savings.

You can take a closer look at the prices of the Fortnite Future War set below:

  • Future War Bundle: 2,800 V-Bucks
  • Sarah Connor: 1,800 V-Bucks
  • T-800: 1,500 V-Bucks
  • Techno-Grip Axe: 800 V-Bucks
  • Cyberdyne Salute: 300 V-Bucks

If you purchase the Future War Bundle, then you will also be able to acquire the exclusive T-800 Endoskeleton Arm and HK Skynet Uplink Back Blings, along with the Combat Knife pickaxe. That makes this worth the money you spend.

We don’t know exactly how much longer these skins will be available in the Item Shop, so you’d better hurry up if you want to get your hands on them.
