It’s the year of the Warhammer for Games Workshop, who have continually seen new Warhammer titles being announced over 2014 and 2015, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to slow up just yet. Another title has been revealed this week, in the form of Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr.
Releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, the Inquisitor – Martyr will be developed by Neocore, who have previously worked on titles such as Van Helsing and King Arthur. The game is penned for a 2016 launch, although no exact date or period has been stated.
Neocore Games seem intent on expanding the RPG sandbox, allowing the game to continue on, long after the main quest has been accomplished. “The single player campaign pitches players into a grim and secret war among the stars as the agents of the ever-vigilant Inquisition. After the end of the campaign the story continues in a colossal sandboxed game set in the same secluded sector of this vast universe. This persistent setting grants years of constant entertainment, gradual development and a continuous flow of content that enriches the Action-RPG gameplay.” It seems rather ambitious, but we like the idea of it.
“There’s a reason why we chose the world of Warhammer 40,000: it’s intense, brutal, visceral—a perfect material for an action RPG,” said Neocore producer Zoltan Pozsonyi. “We’re huge fans as well, so we care deeply about this game.”
Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr will be playable at Gamescom this year in Germany, if you’re fortunate enough to be attending. Why not check it out?
