Owlcat Games has just released an exciting new trailer for their upcoming cRPG, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. The trailer showcases previously unseen environments and locations from the game, transporting players to the gothic architecture, industrial cities, and nightmarish penal colonies that Warhammer 40,000 is known and loved for.
Players will explore vast areas such as the Starport on the planet Rykad Minoris, where giant statues of fallen heroes are intermixed with starship wreckage and destroyed infrastructure. But the biggest reveal in the trailer is the legendary Commorragh, the Dark City located in the depths of the Webway, home to the treacherous Drukhari faction. For the first time in Warhammer 40,000 video game history, players will bear witness to the shadowy citadel of the Kabals, Wych Cults, and Covens, where they will have to endure endless horrors and fight for their very existence.
Fans attending Warhammer Fest in person from April 29 to May 1 in Manchester will be the first to see the Cassia statue, the highlight of the Collector’s Edition. The Steam and GOG wishlists are already open for the highly anticipated title.
Players can support the game right now by purchasing a Founder’s Pack on the official website and becoming part of the team behind Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. Those who decide to support the developers early will gain access to the Alpha and Beta versions of the game, help shape the experience with their feedback, and receive a set of unique rewards and items available only to early supporters.
Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is a PC game with no set release date. Below an overview of the game via Steam and the location trailer.
