ATLANTA and NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Verizon and Hi-Rez are taking mobile games to a new level with Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband by offering an enhanced mobile experience in Hi-Rez’s new game, Rogue Company Elite.
Players on Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband will be able to download a high fidelity graphics package at super-fast speeds and with Verizon Up, Verizon’s award-winning customer loyalty program, they can receive a free weapon 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, 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.”
Verizon is the official U.S. telecom partner of Rogue Company and is working with Hi-Rez to explore how 5G can improve the mobile gaming experience. The partnership will also give players rewards across Hi-Rez Studios’ games through the Verizon Up program. Guaranteed exclusive access to the Rogue Company: Elite Beta will be granted to the first 10,000 iOS and the first 20,000 Android Verizon Up players in the US. Verizon Up will promote the offer to their members, and they will be able to claim the offer to get a code.

The offer goes live on Monday, August 15, 2022. The Rogue Company Elite Beta phase for IOs users will start on August 18, 2022 and for Android users it will start on September 8, 2022. The offer will be live through Wednesday, August 31, 2022.
