Play as the devil in Rogue Lords on Xbox, PlayStation and Switch

Already available on PC through both Steam and Epic, Rogue Lords has now ushered forth console players, giving opportunity for those on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch the chance to play as the devil. 

As the name suggests, Rogue Lords is a roguelike (yeah we know, another one!) in which you get to play as the devil. You see, you’ve been sent from the earthly world, banished forever, but now you think it’s time for you take take back your rightful place, away from Hell in hope of taking control of the world. 

It’s here where you – as one of the Rogue Lords – will be left to take charge of the likes of Dracula, the White Lady and even the Headless Horseman as you look to prove yourself in the overworld. Epic turn-based fights await, as you begin to work the tactical routes required in order to defeat any mere mortal who may well get in your way. 

As a Rogue Lord though, you’ll get to work the rules to your advantage, manipulating health bars, opening up new paths and ensuring that whatever balance there may be, if consistently tipped in your favour. And as with any roguelite, the more you play, the more you’ll begin to understand the intricacies that are involved. 

The key features include:

  • A DARK TALE – Weakened from defeat to the forces of good, you fled the world and sought refuge in hell to survive. Decades later, you have returned with your most faithful Disciples to exact revenge on those wretched Demon Hunters. But the world has changed in your absence. Your enemies have become all-powerful, and a new religion – the Sanctua Lumen – has become very influential. It mercilessly hunts down all those who serve you. To reinstate your hold over the world of humans, you must first regain the strength you previously wielded by taking possession of artefacts with legendary power.
  • CONTROL FAMOUS EVIL GENIUSES – Create your team of 3 Disciples from Dracula, the Headless Horsemen, Bloody Mary, the White Lady, Lilith, Hecate, Baron Samedi, and Frankenstein and his Creature. – Each Disciple has their own unique story, abilities and gameplay: combine their skills to create devastating synergies, and deal with the mortals that dare stand in your way. – Collect souls and exchange them for new skills, upgrades and powerful relics that can strengthen your Disciples.
  • THE DEVIL PLAYS BY HIS OWN RULES – Sacrifice some of your health to control the game interface: nothing will stop you – and certainly not the rules imposed on mortals. – Manipulate the health bars of your Disciples and enemies, optimise status effects to suit your fight tactics, open portals on the map, tip the odds in your favour during events… there are many occasions to use your diabolical powers throughout your run.
  • TAKE BACK YOUR RIGHTFUL PLACE – Increase the terror gauge by winning fights and completing interactive events to earn valuable bonuses for your Disciples. – Complete each event to your liking to reduce the influence of the Sanctua Lumen, give mortals good reason to fear you, and decide the fate of traitors who have allied themselves with your enemies. – Take revenge on the Demon Hunters in epic turn-based fights.

We’ll be running a full review of how Rogue Lords plays on Xbox in the coming days, but you can get yourself involved by heading to the Xbox Store and picking the game up on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. There’s a version kicking around on PlayStation and Nintendo Switch too, as well as the PC drop (the Steam page you need is here) which has been rolling for some time. 

Buy it on Day One and you’ll get the Moonlight Skins Pack too.

Game Description:

The first roguelike in which you play as the devil, which means you can change some of the game’s rules to your advantage! Run after run, manage your team of famous evil geniuses as they encounter unforeseen events and turn-based combat. Unlock new skills, create powerful synergies and use your powers to turn the situation in your favour at critical moments. Only by collecting ancient artefacts can you finally take your revenge on the Demon Hunters.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
