Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr


#1

Just noticed this little item over at IGN, a new action RPG Warhammer 40K game. Unfortunately light on details, I guess because it’s a year off, but they’re calling it a “persistent sandbox action-RPG”. I really liked Space Marine and am always up for a cool new sci-fi RPG, hoping this turns out interesting.

WH:40k would be a perfect fit for a Diablo-like game imo


#3

I would be completely down with that. If you ever played Kill Team, it was sort of, kind of Diablo-like. If you squinted just right. And kind of fun in a lightweight way.


#4

Nice. Looking forward to hearing more about it.


#5

Interesting. It will be developed by Neocore Games, of King Arthur and Van Helsing fame. This could end up being good.


#6

I call shotty on Eisenhorn!


#7

Just started Van Helsing, which might give an idea of what they are doing. Tbh, theres alot from 40k in that so far, right down to enemy with chainswords and a grimdark feel.


#8

I totally missed this a couple weeks back, but apparently there was a 15 minute gameplay demo at Gamescom, check it out.


#9

And…delayed until 2017.


#10

That’s a pity, the Van Helsing Trilogy is a very passable ARPG, (with an obvious 40k influence in Act II) so I have high hopes for this one.


#11

New video detailing the open world of Martyr, and the procedurally generated levels. Also sounds like they’re going to add seasons kind of like Diablo 3 does, if I understand correctly.


#12

Randomly generated content - check, open world - check, coop gameplay - check.

Cant wait! I am in!


#13

Yeah, this is sounding more and more like a Warhammer 40K-themed Diablo clone - which sounds pretty ok to me!


#14

Yeah, it looks good… but then these WH40K games always do.

I dunno… I am a rabid GW fanboi (or I was when I had enough energy to be worked up about stuff), but I have to say that the near-endless flow of Warhammer-themed games is starting to wear a bit. I mean, one out of every three is great (TW: Warhammer for instance), and that’s a really good hit-to-miss ratio for any IP, but by Gork’s Flatulent Toenail there are so MANY of them recently that the mediocre ones are starting to drown out the good ones.

I guess I am… optimistically pessimistic.


#15

I also love me some Grimdark, but c’mon. Most of the Warhammer themed games don’t even look that good. It hasn’t seemed hard to me to weed out the lame ones.


#16

I’m all in for a cool sci-fi Diablo clone!

But instead of that it’s darn Warhammer again… ;)

I loved these bits:

Randomly generated missions … There are than 50 different mission types … huge variety of mission types

Then they show:

and:

It also sounds like the single player campaign doesn’t take place in the open world, as it’s set in an ‘abandoned fortress monastery’? I’m guessing this sandbox may be a bit MMO?

Lastly, it wasn’t posted here but perhaps everyone saw it anyway - a destruction and cover system video from last May:


#17

It’s out, it’s out!


#18

What the what? This totally sneaked up on me! You’re getting this right? I need some inside man coverage here.


#19

I usually don’t like to dive into games at near-full price like this, but Warhammer 40K ARPG with random maps, mini campaigns and co-op? Man, it pushes so many of my buttons I might just have to.


#20

Yeah I’d consider paying full price for this if it’s done well.
