Developer Owlcat Games, through YouTube channel Mortismal Gaming, has revealed that the Word Bearers will be one of the factions in upcoming RPG Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. The reveal also shows off some concept art for the faction.

The Word Bearers, in the Warhammer 40,000 setting, have been around for quite a while. Before the Emperor of Mankind was permanently stuck to his throne for complicated reasons, the Word Bearers acted as the heralds for the Emperor. What set them apart from other similar factions is that the Word Bearers worshipped the Emperor of Mankind as a God, which was something the Emperor didn’t allow.

Needless to say, this caused conflict when the Word Bearers were publically chastised by the Emperor. This culminates in the Word Bearers chosing to worship the forces of Chaos.

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader was originally announced back in June. Developed by the studio behind the Pathfinder games, the game is set to be a CRPG, in the vein of the recent Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous.

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader doesn’t yet have a release date, but it will be coming to PC and consoles.
