Rogue Ops E3 2003 Preshow Report

Kemco's upcoming stealth action game features a female heroine looking to avenge her family's murder.


Kemco will be exhibiting its upcoming stealth action game Rogue Ops at E3 2003. The game is being developed by Bits Studio, which is known for its work on Die Hard: Vendetta for the GameCube and PlayStation 2.

Rogue Ops' story centers on a former Green Beret named Nikki Connors who puts herself back into service after her husband and child die in an explosion caused by a nefarious terrorist organization called Omega 19. Driven by a desire for vengeance, Connors undergoes two years of training for a covert mission against the Omega 19 terrorists.

The game features eight missions. Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to interact with team members and enemies alike, opening up the game's extensive dialogue, which promises to advance the storyline and fully develop each of Rogue Ops' primary characters. Connors specializes in attacking from the shadows and catching the enemy off guard, so Rogue Ops includes a special stealth combat system to reflect her style. She's also an expert with stealth weaponry, so you'll be able to utilize 10 different weapons in the game, including pistols, grenades, mines, a sniper rifle, and a dart gun. Special gadgets will allow you to see in infrared, low-light, and X-ray modes to reveal traps and ambushes. You'll also have the ability to hide in shadows, pick pockets, and conceal bodies.

Rogue Ops is being developed for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube. Kemco plans on including Xbox Live functionality for the Xbox version of the game, complete with downloadable content. Other platform-specific extras are planned for the other versions of the game, but nothing definite has been announced yet. The game is currently scheduled to ship toward the end of 2003. We'll have more information on Rogue Ops as it becomes available.
