It’s been a busy week at Gamescom, but amongst all the trailers and sneak peaks that have dropped, was a game I’m keeping a very close eye on. Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is an upcoming CRPG from Owlcat games, the developers behind Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous and Pathfinder: Kingmaker. At Gamescom a new trailer dropped showing off many of the companions you’ll meet and recruit over the course of your campaign, as well as announcing that the game will be available to play in cooperative multiplayer. This means you can navigate the treacherous void of space and the inner workings of the Imperium of Mankind with your friends (on PC to begin with, and Mac and console later on). Check out the trailer below:
With CRPG’s being in vogue right now thanks to the recent release of Baldur’s Gate 3, and Warhammer becoming more popular than ever, we’re excited to see how Rogue Trader plays out at release. I’m incredibly excited, especially after having played the beta heavily, and I’ll have an article out on my thoughts on the game soon.
From the Press Release – Leading cRPG developer Owlcat Games is excited to announce today via the IGN 2023 gamescom livestream that its upcoming turn-based cRPG, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, will feature cooperative multiplayer. The all-new trailer introduces nine of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader’s companions who will join (and be embodied by) players in this original narrative set in the grim darkness of the far future.
Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is an isometric turn-based roleplaying game where players become one of the galaxy’s most revered privateer voidship captains. In service to the Emperor and the Imperium, the titular Rogue Trader’s autonomy allows them to venture into the unknown with privileges and power beyond a normal citizen’s comprehension. But this path is not one to be taken alone; the Rogue Trader must make unlikely allies and join forces with the likes of a mighty Space Marine, deadly Aeldari, devout Sister of Battle, eccentric Psykers, and other fearsome Xenos as they explore the furthest reaches of the galaxy.
