Rogue Company gets new Vice map and practice shooting range new-rogue-company-features-nintendo-switch

Third-person shooter Rogue Company launched last month on Nintendo Switch. In the time since, it’s seen multiple updates, including a limited-time mode this past weekend. Now, a brand new map has arrived, called Vice. As the name suggests, there’s plenty of purple and palm trees in this Miami-inspired map. Of course, the futuristic neon flavor of Rogue Company is added to create a fun play space. Here’s the developer description of Vice:

The streets of Miami are illuminated and electrifying sounds of nightlife echo through the night. The Zero Drop Rave is the place to be, but a menacing danger looms over the EDM music and laser lights. Rogue Company has been called in to save the party and the day on this new map called Vice.

Alongside the new map for Rogue Company, there are a few new features on the way. A typical shooting range has been added to allow players to test weapons and character abilities. On top of this, there’s a new quitter penalty system in place for deserters and those who are deemed AFK, in order to provide a fairer experience for players. If you leave a match early, disconnect for at least five minutes before a match ends, or stay inactive for over 2 minutes, you’ll face queue times. The first offense is a 5-minute wait, second offense 15 minutes, third 20 minutes, and fourth a full 3 hours.

Update 0.48 for Rogue Company also comes with a bunch of bug fixes and game tweaks. These apply to the game’s various systems, including weapon balance, map designs, and characters. You can check out the full patch notes for nitty-gritty details.
