Rogue Trader adds depth to the Warhammer 40,000 universe

Rogue Trader adds depth to the Warhammer 40,000 universe

Although Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is not the only video game inspired by the tabletop game from Games Workshop, it offers an experience that is significantly different from the one you can enjoy in all previous games. It's not an exciting shooter like Darktide or Space Marine 2, and it has a much deeper narrative than Mechanicus. The game is more similar to Baldur's Gate III in many aspects, which is not a surprise as Owlcat Games specializes in creating great CRPGs. The studio had great success with Pathfinder: Kingmaker and Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous, and Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is quite likely to follow the same path.

A different approach to the universe of the Dark Millenium

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader puts you in the shoes of one of the individuals in charge of exploring the far reaches of the universe to expand the Empire of Man. You have vast resources at your disposal to navigate the space and discover what lies beyond the Empire's border. Unlike other servants of the Emperor, Rogue Traders have a certain degree of freedom to act however they please as long as they accomplish their mission.

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader allows you to follow different paths while you are embarked on an epic adventure. No matter if you choose to be an iconoclast or even a heretic, the game offers you an exciting adventure where your choices matter. Enlisting the aid of powerful individuals is a must if you want to survive and gather information, for example, even if they are shadowy Xenos. Of course, the ever-present influence of the Dark Powers will tempt and try to corrupt you, and it's up to you if you resist it or take advantage of it to gain power.



Owlcat Games has done a very good job adapting the mechanics of the classic tabletop RPG in a video game. Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader offers an intense story-driven experience and complements it with an exciting combat system. The game leaves aside overly complicated mechanics and it is very accessible to new players while offering many details and having a solid and engaging narrative.

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is not going to surpass Baldur's Gate III anytime soon, but if you are looking for an alternative or another CRPG set in a different universe to play in the coming months, the game fills that role.
