Rogue Warrior is now available in North American for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Games for Windows, as well as on Steam.  Experience an action-packed single-player campaign as well as intense multiplayer combat playing as the real-life Navy SEAL and founder of the elite SEAL Team Six, Richard “Demo Dick” Marcinko.

Featuring the voice of Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee, Mickey Rourke, Rogue Warrior was inspired by Marcinko’s New York Times bestseller of the same name and his subsequent novels based loosely on his own past military experiences. Marcinko’s defiant, crude, and sometimes ruthless behavior has earned him both glory and infamy in the history books.
