Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader PS5 PlayStation

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is a triumphant exploration of the 40k setting that launched with a regrettable number of bugs, as noted in our recent review of the game. Developer Owlcat Games has since released a major patch, which should address the worst offenders, and has promised another will arrive on PS5 in time for Christmas.

Patch 1.0.1 went live a few days ago. While not as substantial as Larian's notably large patches, several hundred fixes remain, primarily aimed at quashing bugs and improving stability. There are half a dozen that purport to fix issues affecting controller use on console specifically, speeding up interactions and ironing out UI issues.

From our limited testing, performance seems better on PS5, but we hope to see continued improvement in the next patch. It's due December 21st or 22nd on PS5, and Owlcat says it will focus on "addressing another few hundred issues, focusing on final acts of the game".
