Owlcat Games Announces Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader
During Games Workshop’s Warhammer Skulls 2022 event, Owlcat Games announced Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. The game will be the first traditional RPG set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe based off of the tabletop role-playing game.
The game puts players in the role of a Rogue Trader, the latest in a line of privateers looking to build their own mercantile empire in the fringes of space. With a Warrant of Trade and the blessing of the Emperor himself, the player has the freedom to explore space and expand Imperium borders. Players will lead a ship of personnel — alongside such party members as a Space Marine, an Aeldari Ranger, and a Sister of Battle — as they explore the dangerous Koronus Expanse, making decisions that will have ripple effects throughout the universe. Unlike Owlcat’s previous Pathfinder games, Rogue Trader will only have turn-based combat.
Founder’s packs for the game are available through Owlcat’s website. Founder’s Packs will include eventual Alpha and Beta access to the game, as well as unique in-game items available only to founders and the ability to provide feedback throughout development. The game is set to release for PC though there is currently no release date.
