Developer Owlcat Games (Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous) sent out a newsletter reminding players of the studio’s new title in development, cRPG Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, revealed in early June.
As comes from the name of the game, players will be able to take on the role of a Rogue Trader in one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises. Thanks to the Warrant of Trade, the Rogue Trader is endowed with privileges and power beyond imagination as well as the task of expanding the borders of the Imperium. At their disposal is a gargantuan voidship of immense power and innumerable servants and personnel ready to do the bidding of their lord.
The adventures begin in the vast Koronus Expanse – a treacherous region of unexplored space at the edge of Humanity’s domain. You will make fateful decisions that affect the lives of entire worlds. You will prove your strategic and tactical skills in high-impact turn-based battles against powerful opponents. Also, you will be able to meet faithful and sophisticated companions.
You can support the development process by purchasing one of the founder’s packs on the official site, which will also grant you access to unique rewards. In particular, Developer’s Digital Packs’ owners will get access to the earliest alpha gameplay version with an opportunity to shape the final game. This edition of the game is available for $99.
“By purchasing Developer’s Digital Pack, you will join the creative process and help the developers to make the game by providing your feedback from an early stage. Also, you will get a unique Alpha Supporter Bridge Banner and your name in the Special Thanks credits section.”
