Is there any appetite for a deep, sci-fi roleplaying experience amongst the PlayStation faithful? Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is (shockingly) the first isometric CRPG set in Game's Workshop bleak universe, developed by Owlcat Games, creators of the excellent Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. It finally has a release date: prepare for a grimdark future in which there is only war from 7th December on PS5.
Whereas Larian Studios adapted the latest version of the tabletop D&D ruleset for Baldur's Gate 3, Owlcat Games took a different evolutionary route, utilising Pathfinder's (to our mind) even more complex systems in its recent games. Stick with us here, but there's actually a Rogue Trader tabletop game as well, and that's what Owlcat has adapted for this next outing. We're still trying to comprehend a reality in which CRPGs are even being made, let alone great ones, and so this is happy news, indeed.
