Last year’s action-RPG Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr is getting a pseudo-sequel. Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Prophesy is coming soon.
Prophesy of tech
For my money, one of the best action-RPGs of recent years was Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Martyr. The first action-RPG to feature Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40k universe, the game set players on a wide-ranging series of missions throughout the galaxy.
Different worlds, converging stories, and eventually several 40k races were all involved. Now though, NeocoreGames has announced that the galaxy of Inquisitor is getting even bigger.
Inquisitor – Prophesy will tell an all-new story, one with a potentially new Inquisitor (if you like). Even cooler, you don’t need the base game to play. This pack is standalone.
Here’s what’s included:
- New Class: Play as a Tech-Adept Inquisitor. Summon and enhance units to help defeat enemies and complete investigations. This new summoner class comes with new unique abilities and mechanics, a unique skill-tree and various new melee and ranged builds.
- New Campaign: The story of Inquisitor – Martyr continues in three new chapters, with one chapter solely focusing on the Tech-Adept, as its story slowly ties into the main plot.
- New Environments: Players can discover huge monasteries, hazardous factories, unforgiving deserts and ruthless worlds engulfed by lava and volcanoes.
- New Enemy Races: Inquisitor – Prophecy adds the Eldar and the Tyranids as new enemy races.
- New Gameplay Mechanics: Inquisitor – Prophecy will be based on Inquisitor – Martyr’s 2.0 update, bringing the base game’s new level cap, redesigned loot-system and leveling, its new end-game, the co-op campaign mode, new items and a much faster, ARPG-focused gameplay to the stand-alone expansion as well.
Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor – Prophesy will run you $24.99 USD and land on the PC on May 28th. Yes, that’s right around the corner. Also, if you already own Inquisitor – Martyr, you’ll net a 30% discount on the pack (presumably via Steam, though it’s not specified).
The expansion is on the way to the PS4 and Xbox One as well, though console players will have a while yet to wait. There’s no announcement as to a release as of now.
