Rogue Stormers – 31st March – Xbox One

Imagine a twin stick shooter with classic run ‘n’ gun gameplay, which has been modernised style-wise and every playthrough feels different due to randomly generated levels and loads of different perks and weapons. Well, that’s what you’re getting in the fast paced Rogue Stormers, a game that lets you go it alone, or with up to three friends locally/online, in a bid to blast your way through loads of enemies to save Ravensdale. Be prepared for a challenge though as the difficulty remains balanced through and if you die, then it’s time to start over.
