Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is an upcoming action RPG set in the eponymous Warhammer 40K universe. The game has been available via Steam Early Access since late August 2017 and has had its fair share of ups and downs during all this time. Things are starting to look up for Inquisitor – Martyr, however, as developer NeocoreGames has recently released a major new update for the game. The patch was actually meant to come out back in November but was later postponed due to its large scope, which required additional development time. Fortunately, the update is now finally live and there’s plenty to look forward to here for fans of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.
Right off the bat one of the most exciting features of patch v0.7.0 is the introduction of a brand new class of Inquisitor. Known as the Primaris Psyker, this new class plays very differently when compared to the other two, the Crusader and Assassin Inquisitors. Primaris Psykers are capable of drawing power directly from the Warp in order to unleash devastating attacks, however, wielding such unstable forces does have its drawbacks. Players who want to take on the role of a Primaris Psyker will have to deal with some penalties when using too many psychic powers. On the bright side, the new class has three specializations to choose from and each of them comes with some pretty neat unique powers such as slowing time or blinking across short distances.
Another important feature introduced in patch v0.7.0 is the first chapter of the campaign. Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is a pretty straightforward game but the lack of a clear storyline made it feel a bit directionless and unfocused. The first chapter of the campaign aims to change all that. This initial chapter also doubles as a tutorial, which is great news for players who previously struggled with the game’s many systems and mechanics.
Aside from those two main additions, players can also expect a wide range of other changes to the game after this update. The developers added a large number of bug fixes as well as well as some other interesting changes here and there. Neocore paid close attention to fan feedback and also revamped the leveling system, which should feel more balanced now. Unfortunately, the update also came with a full character wipe so if you’re interested in taking a look at all these changes you’ll need to start from scratch.
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martryr is expected to leave Steam Early Access and officially release sometime during the first quarter of 2018. Meanwhile, NeocoreGames just released a new cinematic trailer for the game. Check it out below and make sure to visit the game’s Steam page for more information.
