'Rogue Heist' Pre-Orders Open, Closed Beta This Weekend - Trailer

by Rainier on June 12, 2019 @ 4:12 p.m. PDT

Rogue Heist is a team-based multiplayer online shooting game where your goal is to help your crew win an ambush by capturing and procuring a high value target on the move.

Rogue Heist is a crew based 6v6 multiplayer online game where you and your crew is engaged in a battle with an opponent crew to steal high-value packages from an ambushed convoy. At the end of match, the team which extracts the most numbers packages wins the match.

In each match of 6v6, you get to choose your crew, choose your role as Sniper/Spotter or Assault, fight the enemy team and extract as many packages as possible. You will earn XP, Heist Ratings and your share of package based on your match performance.

While in the game, stealing is the main objective that everyone has to focus on but there are various other things which need to be taken care of while your team attempts to heist. The game is competitive as there’s another crew attempting to steal too; so, the focus isn’t just on the heist. As a player, you have to strategize with your team, figure out what you are best at, that can be attacking or defending, extracting packages from the convoy, securing them safely, dodging the opponent sniper targeting you and more. With so many things going on simultaneously, the each match is a different experience.

Gather your crew and prepare for the challenge!

Lifelike Studios are pleased to announce that pre-orders are now live on their official site, which grants access to the closed beta tests, along with a host of additional goodies.

The main game mode “Heist” is going to be on display during the beta, as the focus of the first weekend-long test. Starting this Friday June 14th through Monday June 17th, Pre-Purchase players and those selected through contests on Discord are invited to try the game out for free during its first closed beta event.

The first Closed Beta test will be running daily at specific times, to really test the servers. The times are:

  • 12 PM ET to 2 PM ET
  • 9 AM PT to 11 AM PT
  • 4 PM to 6 PM UK
  • 12 am JST to 2 am JST

During the Rogue Heist closed beta, aspiring thieves will be able to form up into crews of six before entering into battle against another crew. The goal is, of course, to hack into an ambushed convoy’s safe to loot as many high-value packages as possible all while defending your stolen goods from the enemy. This is known as Heist Mode, which gives Rogue Heist its name, and we suspect it to be the game’s most-played format, though the live version will have several other gameplay types available to mix things up.

Rogue Heist players can choose from roles that include Sniper, Assault, Support and Hacker. Each role is crucial in snagging as much loot as possible and protecting it from the enemy crew that is seeking to do the same. The choice is yours: Attack, defend, loot, or spot. Strategic thieves will prosper, while those who just run and gun might fall to craftier foes.
