Amid the ocean of upcoming Warhammer video games, one has risen to the highest for me: Rogue Dealer. CRPG developer Owlcat Video games will likely be letting us discover the grimdark future in an RPG occasion, gallivanting round and moving into all kinds of bother. It is but to be given a launch date, although it is “coming quickly”, and within the meantime there is a new trailer to gawk at.
This location trailer, unsurprisingly, offers us a glimpse of a few of the locations we’ll be capable to go to because the titular rogue dealer. As you may count on, there is not any dearth of area ports, industrial equipment and intimidating, gothic statues. However there’s additionally a wee deal with close to the tip.
The Darkish Metropolis, Commorragh, is the house of the drukhari. If you happen to’re not au fait with the setting, suppose evil area elves who do not ask for consent after they get into some BDSM. The Darkish Metropolis has been explored within the tabletop video games, but it surely seems like that is the primary time it is made an look in a videogame.
It seems very like you’d count on: spikes, torture gadgets, lithe aliens strutting round. Not delicate, then. It is a very completely different aesthetic from the areas you will discover within the Imperium, although. And what are you able to stand up to within the Darkish Metropolis, you ask? A lot of issues! You will must endure “countless horrors” and fights on your very existence. That is precisely what I would like from my holidays.
In our preview on the finish of final 12 months, Rick Lane stated Rogue Dealer was shaping as much as be a stellar CRPG, so hopefully it is going to do the house of the drukhari and the remainder of the cosmos justice. It actually seems promising.
