Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader Shared July Content Overview

Developer Owlcat Games (Pathfinder: Kingmaker, Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous) shared the round-up report of the new content shared for the upcoming cRPG Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, including a juicy lore article, the first dev diary and more.

The video developer diary, the first in its series, allows viewers to take a sneak peek behind to scenes of Rogue Trader. The video is narrated by Olga Kellner, the lead narrative designer, who gives players an overview of what awaits them in the grim darkness of the future.

For those who want to refresh their knowledge or learn more about the setting of Warhammer 40k, the team has shared a lore article outlining the place of Rogue Traders in the Imperium of Man:

“Rogue Traders have a reputation as outcasts; many are people whom the priesthood deems better kept at a safe distance. Operating beyond Imperial control, Rogue Traders are a law unto themselves. Some are highly pious individuals, bringing the Emperor’s light beyond His rule; others are nothing more than glorified pirates and scoundrels. Many Rogue Traders exude confidence and are highly charismatic, often charmingand roguish, skilled diplomats (some would say confidence tricksters) and hardened killers when the situation demands.”

Last but not least is the introduction of a new character: Tech-Priest Pasqal Haneumann. He spent many decades on the march towards planets yet unknown and possesses a treasury of priceless knowledge. A message from his former mentor made him abandon his duties and join the Rogue Trader’s retinue.

Pasqal hopes that the protection of such a powerful figure will help him find his venerable teacher and decide just how firm the boundaries of dogma are for a seeker of truth. Some revelations are painful, but Pasqal is prepared to endure anything for his thirst for knowledge. For such is the will of the Omnissiah.

Previously the developers have introduced players to three other characters, both companions and important NPCs:
