Rogue Trooper movie stomps in

Eidos unzips and whips out a brand new gameplay movie for its third-person stealth action shooter thing

Eidos' Rogue Trooper - based on the 2000 AD comic strip - seems to be coming along nicely, and we've got a brand new in-game movie to prove just that.

Arriving on April 21, Rogue Trooper is a third-person action title with "next generation" stealth elements, whatever they might be. The game follows the exploits of Rogue, a Genetic Infantryman (G.I. for short, ingeniously) - "one of an elite regiment of biologically-engineered clone troops, created to overcome Nu Earth's hostile atmosphere and fight, unhindered, against the brutal Nort War machine", it says here.

It seems that Rogue's entire regiment is wiped out during the Quartz Zone Massacre and it's up to him to track down the trecherous general behind the events and, presumably, shove a bunch of bullets through his brain. Epic and moving, we're sure you'll agree.

Now, go watch the movie.
