On August 15th, telecommunications giant Verizon announced it was partnering with Hi-Rez Studios to become the official partner of the free-to-play third-person shooter game Rogue Company. This deal will see Verizon bring 5G services to Rogue Company Elite, the mobile version of the hit 2020 game.
Starting on the 15th, gamers that have access to Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband telecommunication services will be able to download a high-fidelity graphics package for the game at super-fast speeds thanks to Verizon Up, the company’s award-winning customer loyalty program. Moreover, users that download the package will also be given a free weapons wrap for use in the game.
“Verizon, the network America relies on, is built for gaming, with super-fast speeds, massive capacity, and low lag on 5G Ultra Wideband, so you never miss a moment of the action when you’re on the go,” said Erin McPherson, the Head of Consumer Content and Partnerships at Verizon. “With entertainment partners like Hi-Rez, we continue to bring the best experiences to our customers wherever they are – like games you can download in seconds and stream, and the ability to play data-intensive, multiplayer games typically reserved for consoles on your mobile phone.”
This offering went live for iOS users three days before the beta launch of Rogue Company Elite. Android users will have to wait until September 8th to gain access to this package.
