Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader will be available for personal computers on a date that has not yet been determined. The following detailed description of Owlcat Games’ next massive computer role-playing game (cRPG) is available for your perusal.
Exploration of the Koronus Expanse is encouraged.
Your massive voidship will take you across tremendous lengths as you navigate the Koronus Expanse, a region of space that is poorly documented and fraught with incredible danger. Along the way, you will visit a variety of star systems. Even though this part of the Imperium is believed to be a backwater, it contains a vast portion of the void rich with untold possibilities for making money and expanding one’s horizons.
Your judgments matter, Lord-Captain.
Every decision and every act of the Rogue Trader sends ripples throughout the entire sector, changing the in-game world and the people who inhabit it. Show your subjects mercy or disdain, remain faithful to the God-Emperor, or consort with enemies of Mankind.
Collect the rest of your team.
Rogue Traders never go alone. Collect your entourage, which may consist of warped psykers, holy warriors, and perfidious Xenos. They are all geared up and ready to accompany you into the void that lies between the stars. They will provide you with advice, assist you in combat, and make it possible for you to amass ever more power. In exchange, you can direct them on their paths and alter the course of their lives permanently.
Make sure that your plans are well thought out.
Utilizing a full-fledged, strategic turn-based combat system, you must eliminate all threats to humanity. To gain the upper hand over your adversaries, use cover, pay attention to your surroundings, and position yourself strategically.
When that is not enough, use the powerful abilities of your companion to turn the tide of the battle and achieve victory even in the most hopeless of situations. The original Rogue Trader rule set has been adapted for use in our Rogue Trader video game, which gives you access to a huge variety of options that you can investigate.
