Rogue Trader Could Explore Warhammer 40K’s Universe Like Never Before

It is difficult to describe why having a CRPG set in Warhammer 40K is so big for the franchise without first stepping back to describe what a CRPG functionally means. Most Warhammer 40K games, such as Chaos Gate-Daemonhunters, are tactical, turn-based strategy games, pitting armies or squads of combatants against each other. While that may not sound much different than the gameplay featured in the trailer of Rogue Trader, one may only need to glance at Owlcat’s other games to see what a CRPG is capable of.

CRPGs are typically much more narratively focused than other genres, meaning players should expect a lot more lore and stories to help flesh out the game world. In games like Owlcat’s Pathfinder: Kingmaker, the player starts as a nobody who eventually rises to become the ruler of a land where their decisions can impact not only the status of their kingdom but the lives of their party members as well. Likewise, party members are typically given a lot more story than what is typically provided in standard RPGs, meaning that they become fully fleshed-out characters rather than nameless soldiers in an army, which is in stark contrast to most other Warhammer 40K games. In many ways, Owlcat’s Pathfinder titles do better than D&D games when it comes to keeping with their core material.

Rogue Trader offers opportunities to meet and deal with numerous cultures and xenos in a way not normally explored in the fiction outside of the novels. Most games center around conflict, but with an CRPG set in the Warhammer 40K universe, players may finally get an option to see the other (at least occasionally) less murdery side of the Imperium. While conflict is surely to abound, fighting may not be the only solution and it is in this promise that the game is truly exciting. Imagine trading with the Tau or enlisting the Aeldari to help in battle, each having narrative consequences that have lasting impacts on the game. The possibilities are boundless, and it’s in this capacity that Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader could really flesh out the fiction in ways no other game has yet managed.
