Owlcat Games has officially launched “Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader,” now available on PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
This game invites players to step into the role of a Rogue Trader, commanding a voidship and its diverse crew as they navigate the complexities and conflicts within the Koronus Expanse. The game’s narrative unfolds around the story of House von Valancius.
As a high-quality turn-based cRPG, “Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader” offers players a variety of gameplay experiences.
The player, as the Rogue Trader, can engage in diplomacy with newly discovered planets, lead tactical combats, and participate in intense voidship battles against pirates and renegades. The player’s decisions and actions directly influence the fate of their character and crew.
Key aspects of the game include:
- Diverse Crew: Players can choose from a wide range of companions from the Warhammer 40,000 universe, each with unique abilities and backgrounds. These include devout Battle Sisters, mighty Space Wolves, Unsanctioned Psykers, and even potentially risky allies like Aeldari Rangers or Drukari Dracon.
- Storytelling and Decision-Making: The game features a narrative that is shaped by the player’s choices. There are three distinct paths to follow, each raising moral and strategic dilemmas and leading to different outcomes for the Rogue Trader, their crew, and the Koronus Expanse.
- Tactical Gameplay: The game continues the tradition of tactical turn-based combat, allowing players to strategize and lead their crew in battles.
- Multiplayer Co-op: While multiplayer co-op is currently available on the Windows PC version, it is planned to be introduced to Mac and console versions through a future patch.
Sergeant Antaro Chronus of the Ultramarines is quoted in the announcement, encapsulating the thrill of battle, a central theme of the game. High Inquisitor Bronislaw Czevak, Ordo Xenos, also provides a cautionary note about the dangers and temptations inherent in the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
