Neocore Games and Bigben Interactive announced that Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will officially graduate from Early Access on May 11th in two months. Not only that, but the game will also launch for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, in addition to having the full release made available on Steam for PC.
The game could best be described Warhammer 40K: Diablo Edition. It’s an isometric, action-RPG featuring fast-paced combat, hordes of enemies to dispatch, and a variety of character classes themed around the Holy Order of the Inquisition.
The game has been in development for the last three years, with Neocore starting work on it shortly after finishing up the trilogy of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing. Last year back in August of 2017, Neocore worked with Games Workshop to announce that Warhammer 40,0000: Inquisitor – Martyr would be entering into Early Access on Steam. Since then they’ve been chipping away at the rough edges and updating the game with new content.
If you need an idea of what the gameplay is like, there’s an hour and a half of gameplay streamed by AirsickHydra.
The game plays out a lot like Blizzard’s classic Diablo series. You can build out a class that focuses on melee, long-range, magic, or pet-oriented gameplay.
There’s lots of destructive carnage to go around, and there’s also some destructible environments for you to pick apart when using devastating moves and attacks. As you whittle down the enemy forces you’ll also be privy to plenty of blood splatter to spread around the floor like the Alien Shooter franchise.
Now unlike Diablo, you won’t just travel around to different locations by walking there, you’ll have a star map that will allow you to space-hop to different planets within the Caligari Sector.
You’ll face off against infested Void Stations, Star Forts, and various other locales based around Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40K franchise.
The PC and home console versions will support four-player cooperative play, along with plenty of shooting and looting to be done.
Now back in February there were a lot of negative reviews warning gamers away from Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr because they noted that there were plenty of broken gameplay features. However, the negative reviews were actually quite positive because they told gamers to wait for the March patch. Well, the March patch is here and it includes plenty of fixes, plenty of bug squashes and a lot of other balance tweaks. You can check out the changelog over on the Steam community page.
The next major revision for the game will actually be on release day when it arrives on PS4, Xbox One and graduates from Early Access on PC starting May 11th. For more info feel free to visit the Steam app page.
