Owlcat Games announces Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader

Owlcat Games has announced Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader – the first classic roleplaying game with turn-based combat in the legendary grim darkness of the far future of Warhammer 40,000, produced in close collaboration with Games Workshop to be released on PC and consoles. The World Premiere, including the first glimpse of gameplay, was announced at the Warhammer Skulls Showcase as part of the festival of video games. Players that are eager to get their hands on the early version of the game and contribute to the development can obtain exclusive Founder’s Packs that are available from Owlcat Studio’s website.

Players will take on the role of a Rogue Trader, a scion of an ancient dynasty of daring privateers, that reign over their own merchant empire and explore the fringes of Imperial space with the blessing of the Emperor Himself. Thanks to their Warrant of Trade – the Rogue Trader is endowed with privileges and power beyond imagination as well as the task of expanding the borders of the Imperium. At their disposal is a gargantuan voidship of immense strength and innumerable personnel ready to follow any undertakings of the leader. Show your subjects mercy or disdain, stay faithful to the Emperor or consort with enemies of Mankind – every decision and every act of the Rogue Trader sends ripples throughout entire star systems, changing the in-game world and those who inhabit it.

The action will unfold in the Koronus Expanse, a dangerous and unexplored region on the far frontiers of the Imperium of Man. Many explorers have fallen victim to this dangerous place and never returned.

Remarkable and sophisticated companions are one of the pillars of cRPGs and Rogue Trader is no exception. A mighty Space Marine, a mercurial Aeldari Ranger, or even a courageous Sister of Battle armed with bolter and ardent prayers are just a few of the many characters that will join the Rogue Trader during your adventures.

Fans can support the game and purchase one of the Founder’s Packs and become a part of the team behind Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. Those who decide to support the developers early will gain access to the Alpha and Beta versions of the game, help the team to shape the experience with their feedback, and receive a set of unique rewards and items available only to early supporters.
