Owlcat Games Details Warhammer 40,000’s Rogue Traders
Developer Owlcat Games released a new developer diary video for its upcoming title Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. The five-minute video introduces its setting of the Koronus Expanse, which is a largely unexplored region out of the way of the Imperium’s massive armies and fleets. Players control eponymous Rogue Traders, privateers looking to make their own fame and fortunes on the fringe of space, using their Warrant of Trade that grants them many privileges to act for the Imperium.
In Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, 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. The game is currently in development for PC though a release window has not been announced.
