Award-winning studio Owlcat Games has unveiled the first gameplay trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader - the first cRPG set in the legendary, unrelenting darkness of a distant future, the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The role-playing game with a turn-based combat system appears for PC and consoles and is being developed in close cooperation with Games Workshop.
Collector's Edition including Cassia statue
Players take on the role of Free Traders, descendants of a venerable family of daring privateers who rule a trading empire and explore the fringes of Imperial dominion on behalf of the Emperor himself. Thanks to the Trade Authority, Free Traders have unimaginable privileges and powers, and are also tasked with expanding the borders of the Empire. The player has a gigantic void ship of immense strength and a huge crew just waiting to carry out the orders of their leader at their disposal. It is up to the player to show mercy to his subjects or treat them with contempt, to remain loyal to the Emperor or to join forces with enemies of mankind - every decision of the Free Trader influences entire solar systems and changes the in-game world and its inhabitants.
The game's events unfold in the Koronus Reach, a dangerous and uncharted region on the outer frontier of the human empire. Many explorers have fallen victim to this place and never returned.
One of the cornerstones of cRPGs are remarkable and complex companions - and of course such are also found in Rogue Trader. A mighty Space Marine, a restless Eldar Ranger, or even a brave member of the Adepta Sororitas armed with boltguns and prayers are just a few of the many characters who join the Rogue Trader on his adventures.
Owlcat revealed the gameplay trailer during the PC Gaming Show 2023 Preview, giving a taste of life as a rogue trader. At the same time, the wish lists for the highly anticipated title were opened on Steam and GOG.
The fabulous Collector's Edition of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader was also introduced.
