    Threats Lurk Within In Void Shadows, The First DLC For Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader

    cRPG developer Owlcat Games is excited to announce Void Shadows, the first DLC expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. Announced as part of Warhammer Skulls, the expansion adds hours of new content and will be available on all platforms on August 8th, 2024.


    Void Shadows is the first DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, offering a massive amount of content with about 15 hours of gameplay and a new romanceable companion, all fully integrated into the game’s main story. The DLC allows the players to personally delve into the depths of their voidship in an enthralling story that will pit them against an entirely new enemy who is trying to bring ruin to the von Valancius dynasty from the inside.

    • A new story — Enjoy 15 hours of tense, new adventures on board the voidship with unexpected threats, various quests, two new archetypes with unique abilities, and new lore content, all fully integrated into the main campaign.
    • А new companion — Gain the loyalty (and possibly love) of Kibellah, a Death Cult Assassin ready to pledge her life in service of the von Valancius dynasty just as her predecessors did for generations before her. This new companion will have romance options as part of the new story.
    • New crew members — Interact with high-level officers integral to the player’s voidship operation. These new crew members play a significant role in the new story.
    • А new looming threat — Arising from within the deepest and darkest bowels of the player’s very own voidship is the malignant Genestealer Cult – a horrific breed of xenos who work from the shadows and infect your crew with their genetic code to convert them and slowly twist their loyalties for their wretched goals.
    • New locations to explore — New quests mean new nooks and crannies hidden around the voidship where no Lord Captain has explored before, until now.
    • New feature of the voidship — Upgrade your voidship with a new hangar, able to launch groups of fighters and bombers to succeed in desperate, massive space battles or even bigger threats.
