    [​IMG]RPGamer checked out Rogue Trader:


    Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader PAX West Preview

    Rogue Trader is going to be a very in-depth title; though combat did not appear too time-consuming, there's enough dialogue options and story that even the current beta available has up to 60 hours of content.

    Owlcat Games has been gaining prestige incorporating the role-playing aspect of popular tabletop franchises with fun tactical turn-based combat. The studio is now trying its hand at the Warhammer universe through Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, a new party-based RPG set in the hostile Koronus Expanse. RPGamer got the chance to take a look at how things are looking with a sit-down preview of the title at PAX West.

    The eponymous Rogue Trader is a title for the player-created protagonist that will be fleshed out by their choices. The studio promises robust role-playing and combat options that diversify them from the preset companions that join the party. The protagonist is taken on an original journey inspired by the Warhammer 40,000 universe, meeting a cast of eight companions that can join the player and bring their own specialties. For example, Abelard is a tank who helps mitigate damage for the active party of six, while others include Jae, a smuggler and all-around good leader and great support character, and Marazhai, a whirlwind of death and destruction. Each of the companions will be there for more than just combat, as they also have storylines of their own that Rogue Trader dives into. The presentation showcased the crew exploring a planet for a downed space shuttle and coming across the robotic and skeletal Necron along the way.
