Rogue Company Makes Dr Disrespect Playable Alongside Map, Reveals Playerbase
Dr Disrespect is, without a doubt, one of the most intense gaming personalities on the internet. There’s no denying his reach and how powerful his following is. When we saw he was teaming up to bring his fictional universe to life within Rogue Company, we were interested. After just offering a teaser of the map, it seems that it’s ready to roll! Rogue Company and Dr Disrespect are bringing The Arena to life today! What a great time for the 8 million+ people who are actively playing Rogue Company! It’s an exciting shooter, and this will only bring more eyes to it.
The Arena is here, and it’s up to you to bring the pain to the other team.
It seems like yesterday that Dr Disrespect challenged the Rogue Company team to let him build a map for the free-to-play shooter. The Arena is a new playable map that offers a speed-friendly acceleration layout and will promote immediate combat with the other squad. What should be unique and fun about the map is that it will offer fast-paced wins, tight spaces to have shootouts in, and plenty of movement options for players to put to use. If you’re looking for violence, speed, and momentum, you’re going to find it in The Arena.
“Partnerships need to be unique, authentic and organic,” said Trevor Williams, vice president at Hi-Rez Studios. “As we brainstormed opportunities, Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm became a prime target. We felt his career background and Rogue Company had a perfect synergy and creating a map together would be the most unique way to fold Dr Disrespect into our gaming world.”
If that wasn’t enough, there’s a recreation of the Doc with a Dr Disrespect skin. If you’ve ever wanted to step into the shoes of the two-time world champ, this is the easiest way to do it. This is a co-promotion made in heaven if you ask us. Rogue Company is the newest fps on the block. As a free-to-play, it’s harder than ever to make a foothold. You’ve got to do something solid to stand out. Rogue Company is already doing that by not being a pay-to-win game, but having Dr Disrespect under their banner with an in-game map and skin will make that a hundred times better.
“The Arena map on Rogue Company will host the most speed, violence and momentum ever experienced in gaming,” said Dr Disrespect in a recent press release. “The team got out of the way and let me do what I do best, and that’s dominate – baby. This map is cranked up to 11, and we’re only halfway there. Meet me inside The Arena and watch me get to work.”
We can officially say Dr Disrespect, the Champions Club, and The Arena are official Rogue Company canons. Rogue Company is also the most successful launch for Hi-Rez in their 15-year history, so they’re making some serious waves right now. We’re proud of their success so far. Seeing the announcement of 8 million+ players shows they’re doing something right.
