THE RELEASES THAT have HELPED ESTABLISH REBELLION
ALIEN VS. PREDATOR
Released for the Atari Jaguar in 1994, Alien Vs. Predator is widely considered to be one of the best-selling games for the system, putting Rebellion on the map. Much of the company’s success can be tracked back to this innovative and ambitious game.
Released in 1991 for the Atari Lynx, Rebellion was hired in 1994 to develop an enhanced version of the game for the Jaguar. Featuring polygonal graphics, as well as the option to change weather conditions, it put the studio on the map as a work-for-hire outfit.
JUDGE DREDD: DREDD VS. DEATH
Following the acquisition of 2000AD in 2000, Rebellion developed its first game based on the licences it now held. Dredd vs. Death proved to be polarising, though was ultimately praised for its dedication to the source material, arcade and multiplayer modes.
Released in 2006, Rogue Trooper received BAFTA nominations for its screenplay and characterisation of Rogue, with positive critical acclaim following close behind. Rogue Trooper became something of a cult hit, mustering a full remaster late in 2017.
Without question Rebellion’s most popular and enduring series, Sniper Elite put players into the position of a lone sniper and has now gone on to inspire multiple sequels, a spin-off series and over 10 million sales for the game series.
ZOMBIE ARMY TRILOGY
A tactical third-person shooter spin-off of the Sniper Elite series, Zombie Army Trilogy is an alternate history romp that delivered throwaway fun for any players that were looking for a little more mileage from Sniper’s fun core systems.
Rebellion’s first foray into virtual reality, Battlezone proved to be one of the launch title hits for Sony’s PSVR. The studio purchased the rights through Atari’s bankruptcy proceedings in 2013; yet another shrewd purchase on the part of the Kingsley brothers.
