Hungarian developer Neocore will expand an already impressive list of action rpg titles with the announcement that their next game will feature Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40k setting. From Neocore’s producer, Zoltán ‘Pozs’ Pozsonyi:
There’s a reason why we chose the world of Warhammer 40,000: it’s intense, brutal, visceral – a perfect material for an Action RPG. Working with Games Workshop, we’re doing our best to bring a high quality game to the community. We’re huge fans as well, so we care deeply about this game.
Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor-Martyr is slated for a 2016 release. It’s a long title, but Neocore is promising a long life for the gameplay. Inquisitor-Martyr will feature a full single player campaign as well as the ability to engage the open-world of the game in a map described as “colossal.” With Neocore’s solid track record with the trio of Van Helsing ARPGs, as well as the excellent Deathtrap, it’s a safe bet that Inquisitor-Martyr will have a large focus on combat as well as rpg elements. The initial announcement doesn’t include information about co-op or multiplayer, but those elements have been part of the success of the Van Helsing games and Deathtrap, so it would be a surprise if they weren’t featured.
If you haven’t had a chance to try Neocore’s take on ARPGs, you have a great opportunity this week. The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is part of Humble Jumbo Bundle 4. The sale started July 21st and runs through August 3rd. Definitely a great deal and a recommended purchase if you are looking for a preview of what to expect with Inquisitor – Martyr’s entry into the ARPG gamespace.
