Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr
So, I finally got a chance to settle down and take on the latest Warhammer game, Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor - Martyr. Originally released on PC June 5th, the game has made its way to console and honestly, it’s about time!
Neocore Games has brought us a top-down Diablo-esqe style game to PS4 and Xbox One. In this installment of 40K, you play an Inquisitor, think of a pissed of Clergyman that distrusts anyone who doesn’t serve the God Emperor! Starting off you must make your character; you get to choose from 3 classes, The Crusader - a basic shoot ‘em in the face tough guy, Assassins – your generic stealth-based killers, and lastly Psykers - powerful Psionic people with a jaw of glass. After you pick a class you then choose from 3 subclasses. I went with the Crusader and your choices after that are Heavy weapons, Assault, and Tactical (this is the subclass I chose). You can flesh out the character even more during gameplay by using skill points to boost up initial skills or buy new skills.
Alright, so we have our brand-new Inquisitor, all ready to go hurt evil space things. we hit
Once you’re done with the training session you are off on an investigation all over the galaxy to find out what happened on the Martyr and how to stop the hordes of Chaos from spreading their evil throughout the universe. As for the gameplay I liked it. Once you get used to the fighting style you pick the weapons you like I prefer lasguns / laspistols over the bolt weapons, or chainswords over axes or hammers. You also will not be able to buy or sell collected weapons during the training period, once that’s over you get access to a “store character” where you will be able to sell huge collection of weapons you will probably find in that first part and upgrade any weapons or armor you may have on you.
I really like the game and any 40K fan should have fun with this one. For people new to the world it’s still enjoyable and you can even learn most of the world history as you access in-game computers during your investigations. I normally play games like this solo but this one allows you to do co-op play and with up to 4 people to join you as you hunt down evil in the universe. The game will even contain Seasons, so you get fresh content for the game from time to time. A season will introduce new enemy types – new races, new factions, new conflicts, new investigations, mini-campaigns that fill out the background of the season. Seasons will run for a certain length and then they will be resolved.
Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor – Martyr is available now PS4, XBOX & PC. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
