Earlier this month, Hi-Rez Studios introduced the Rogues Rising Update to Rogue Company. The update added multiple features to Rogue Company, including the game’s first narrative event, Juke’s Gambit. Today, Hi-Rez Studios announced that Juke is a new character coming to Rogue Company on June 7th. You can check out the new cinematic teaser for Juke below.
According to the press release, Juke is an intelligent woman who can take credit for some impressive accomplishments.
“Juke is the woman responsible for the engineering of the world’s first fully sentient Artificial Intelligence, as she used to be the brilliant brains of big tech company Furmi.62.”
What Can Rogue Company Players Expect From Juke?
Like her fellow Rogues, Juke shares a mutual hatred for Jackal.
“Now that her life’s work has potentially been stolen by Jackal, the Rogues’ rivals, she rallies Rogue Company in search of answers.”
Of course, this means that Juke is a new playable character in Rogue Company. The press release outlined some details of how Juke will appear when players see her in Rogue Company.
“On the battlefield, Juke’s distinguishing mark will be her rocket boots. Both on the ground and mid-air, they allow her dodge roll to turn into a dash, propelling her forward in the blink of an eye. This makes Juke the most mobile Defender to date. To secure objectives, she can deploy a laser defense drone standing guard and continuously firing at enemies until destroyed.”
In today’s press release, Hi-Rez Studios announced that everything about this new character will be revealed in the Update Show, which will be available to watch on YouTube tomorrow at 3 pm.
All Rogue Company players will be able to play as Juke when she’s added to Rogue Company on June 7th. Rogue Company is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
