Rogue Company continues to grow day by day, both in content and playerbase, amassing some 8 millions players now and it looks like Hi Rez are pushing for even more with their latest collaboration.
Yesterday, Hi Rez announced their new collab with streaming legend, Dr Disrespect. It appears Doc has been streaming Rogue Company, one thing lead to another and the Doc was challanged by Hi Rez to create a new map for game, which he did.
Guy Beahm, also known as Dr Disrespect, flexed his talents as a former level designer and duly created today’s exciting map, ‘The Arena.’ The playable map features a speed-friendly acceleration layout that promotes immediate combat and fast-paced wins through tightly crafted spaces that offer players multiple movement options to outplay their opponents. Hi-Rez Studios designers then added special Dr Disrespect themed content that brought his fictional headquarters, ‘The Arena’ to life. Plus, they recreated Doc in-game with a character ‘skin’ so gamers can play a lifelike replica of Dr Disrespect.
“‘The Arena’ map on Rogue Company will host the most speed, violence and momentum ever experienced in gaming”, says Dr Disrespect. “The team got out of the way and let me do what I do best, and that’s dominate – baby. This map is cranked up to 11 and we’re only halfway there. Meet me inside ‘The Arena’ and watch me get to work.”
“Partnerships need to be unique, authentic and organic”, says Trevor Williams, Vice President at Hi-Rez Studios. “As we brainstormed opportunities, Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm became a prime target. We felt his career background and Rogue Company had a perfect synergy and creating a map together would be the most unique way to fold Dr Disrespect into our gaming world.”
