We’ve been following along with Orangepixel’s latest project Gunslugs: Rogue Tactics ever since its original announcement way back in November of 2017, and at long last the light is finally at the end of the tunnel. Just to recap, Gunslugs: Rogue Tactics is the latest entry in Orangepixel’s excellent Gunslugs run ‘n gun platforming series, but as the subtitle insinuates, this one has a greater emphasis on stealth and tactics. In reality it’s not just a one way or the other situation, as Rogue Tactics can support both a slower more tactical style as well as a run in guns blazing style, and different situations in the game will require a bit of both styles of play. You can see a nice overview of these play styles in the newest trailer for Gunslugs: Rogue Tactics.
For an even lengthier look at how a typical game plays, you can also check out this beta footage that was released a couple of weeks ago for a solid 7 minutes of gameplay. If you’ve watched all of the gameplay trailers and read all our previous coverage, and are simply wondering to yourself WHEN THE HECK CAN I JUST PLAY THIS THING?? then I have some pretty good news for you. That light at the end of the tunnel I mentioned before? That comes in the form of Gunslugs: Rogue Tactics being available for pre-order on the App Store right now as a premium game priced at $4.99. Now the expected release date on the pre-order page is June 25th, but based on comments from Orangepixel in our forums, that may not be set in stone. They expect to launch it in the “3-4 week range" so it very well COULD be June 25th, but it also might end up being sooner or even a little later. The important thing is that it’s soon and you can get ahead of the game by pre-ordering it now so you’ll be all set when Gunslugs: Rogue Tactics does end up arriving.
