Developer Owlcat Game is thrilled to announce the first classic roleplaying game set in the 40K Universe, Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, which is produced in close collaboration with Games Workshop. The game is set to be released on PC and consoles.
The World Premiere, including the first glimpse of gameplay, was announced at the 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 starting today.
We’re really excited to open a new chapter in Owlcat Games history. Working on such a remarkable universe as Warhammer 40,000 is a great honour but also a responsibility and challenge for us as a team.
The grim darkness of the 41st millennium is a harsh place of unbound evil, untold sacrifices and large-scale threats and challenges that perfectly transitions into an exciting roleplaying narrative that allows an exceptional freedom of in-game choice for the player.
We endeavor to bring to the game everything that fans of the cRPG genre love and expect: fateful decisions, non-linear stories, strong and diverse companion cast together with addictive and complex gaming systems to master.
Oleg Shpilchevsky, Head of Owlcat Games
About Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader
In Warhammer 40000 Rogue Trader, 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.
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.
Starting today, fans can support the game purchase one of the Founder’s Packs, and become a part of the team behind Warhammer 40000 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.
