Developer Owlcat Games has announced that its upcoming RPG, Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, will be kicking off its alpha test on December 7. The studio hasn’t yet elaborated on how much of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader will be available to play during the alpha.
Announced over Twitter, the studio has stated that to get access to the alpha, players will have to buy the game’s Developer’s Digital Pack or Collector’s Edition. It is worth noting that, since the game is still unavailable to pre-order on Steam, players will have to buy the game from its official website.
In the upcoming RPG, players will take on Xenos, ancient machines, heretics, and monsters from the Warp. Along the way, players will also have to deal with various factions and characters from the Warhammer 40,000 setting, like the Word Bearers, and the recently-detailed Interrogator Heinrix van Calox.
Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is coming to PC and consoles, but it doesn’t yet have a full release date.
Greetings, Rogue Traders! We have great news for you! You will be able to begin the journey through the Koronus Expanse on December 7!
Become a founder and grab the Developer’s Digital Pack or the Collector's Edition to join the Alpha!https://t.co/jeN9bnYnMH pic.twitter.com/ux76HuhwuJ
