Conquest Mode sits alongside the procedural Rogue Mode and adds multiple single-level challenges for each planet in the game. These levels focus on hero defense style gameplay with the player activating and fortifications in their base, calling in dropship reinforcements and activating infantry barracks to defend against ever more powerful waves of enemies before pushing back and taking down the opposing bases.
In addition to the new mode, the Conquer the Galaxy update adds new weapons for all four playable characters including a flamethrower for Rampage Rufus, lasers and a cannonball gun for Destructobot, a rapid fire machine gun and grenade launcher for Smackdown Sam and a laser rifle for Ownage Olga as well as the No-Scope, a sniper rifle with no laser sight but more damage and range.
Rogue Continuum tells the fantastical tale of four borderline psychopaths as they travel back in time to prevent the destruction of Earth the only way they know how – by killing all the possible alien culprits before they have a chance to do the dirty on our home planet.
Available in early access since September 2015, Rogue Continuum is in development for PC and consoles with a full launch scheduled for 2016. The next update to the game will add online multiplayer support and is expected in mid December.

MORE INFO ON ROGUE CONTINUUM
A wise-cracking space marine, an ice cold sniper, a homicidal robot and a chainsaw-wielding aristocrat travel back in time to save Earth from destruction in a co-op roguelike planet-crawler.
It’s the year 2890 AD and Earth just got blown into tiny pieces by an unknown alien force. Humanity’s only hope are an elite strike force of galactic super soldiers who fortuitously managed to escape on a prototype spaceship that can travel back in time by 28 days. Turning back the clock with no idea as to who the assailants were/are/will be, they do the sensible thing and decide to kill all hostile alien races just to make sure.
Go solo or team up with up to three friends for intense roguelike planet-crawling action. Choose from four distinct characters each with their own play-style, weapons and abilities. Earn XP to upgrade each character’s stats and abilities between runs and find blueprints to unlock and upgrade weapons in the Armory.
Save planet Earth from the certain doom that just happened: our best, and only, plan – travel back in time and obliterate all the hostile alien planets we know about before they have the chance to destroy Earth. That will totally work and absolutely makes us the heroes of this story.
Friendship is fragging other species into non-existence together: some people like to play with themselves and that’s totally fine but personally I always enjoy company when I’m shooting aliens in the face. With online and local co-op multiplayer for up to four friends or strangers, you too can experience the intensity of group slugging.
Die, Upgrade, Repeat: each time you die, the ship will jump back in time and you can start over. Only this time, you’re that little bit tougher, a little bit quicker. Maybe you learnt a new skill, maybe you found some blueprints to a new weapon. With an infinite amount of time at your disposal even a punk like you could become the ultimate soldier. Funny how each time you jump back things are a little bit different though. Probably shouldn’t have chosen butterflies as the ship pet.
Four flavours of fatality: Each character has a set of weapons that only they can use and abilities that only they are allowed to learn. The reasons for this are on a strictly need-to-know basis. Hey, this is a top secret military unit we’re talking about here, civilian; we told you about the time travel thing, what more do you want?
Conquer the Galaxy: Take a break from Rogue Mode to take on the challenges of Conquest Mode. Fight through a series of tailored missions with hero defense gameplay – repair and upgrade the fortifications in your base to defend against waves of ever more powerful enemies, then push on to destroy their drop-zones.
Mysterious item shop merchant of unknown motivation: all the best games have them and this is no exception. Loot credits from the corpses of the alien scum you’ve slaughtered and give them to a strange hooded man to get cool gear like bullets that freeze enemies or boots that make you walk super fast. Alternatively, forego immediate gratification and invest in the merchant to unlock even cooler stuff for your future past self to purchase.
Some of the best weapons we could think of: how does a dysfunctional crew of borderline psychopaths save the galaxy from a never-ending horde of bugged out aliens? Because someone gave them ridiculously overpowered weapons and abilities such as calling down an airstrike inside an underground cavern of course. Discover blueprints that have been carelessly left lying around the galaxy to discover even more awesome weaponry or upgrades.
