'Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr' (ALL) Details Major v2.0 Update, Coming Next Month - Trailer

by Rainier on April 8, 2019 @ 8:34 a.m. PDT

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr is an action-RPG that not only evokes the dystopian world of the dark and violent 41st millennium, but also becomes the next milestone in the evolution of action-RPGs.

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will be a monumental, brutal and grim experience, undeniably true to the spirit of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

Building on the experience gained from The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Action-RPG trilogy, NeocoreGames aims to expand the boundaries of the genre itself by taking the in-game mechanics and visual solutions to a brand new level and also by opening up a persistent sandboxed Action-RPG.

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.

Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr. 2.0 is an update based on player feedback and extensive testing, that fundamentally changes some of the core features of the game, such as the progression system, itemization and loot, and how combat works.

It also expands the game with new end-game modes, new items, a new level cap and the co-op campaign mode. Overall, the patch aims to elevate Martyr's qualities as an Action-RPG, implementing features, pacing and a sense of progression that is more in line with the traditions of the ARPG genre.

v2.0 is a free update and it's coming out on May 28 on PC, and a bit later on PS4 and Xbox One.
