Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Underneath it’s buggy exterior and general lack of polish is one of the best CRPGs in the Warhammer series. Engaging turn-based tactical combat, good freedom of choice, and a great atmosphere make this game a few patches away from being exceptional.

Game Info

You will take on the role of a Rogue Trader, a scion of an ancient dynasty of daring privateers, that reign over their own merchant empire and explore the fringes of Imperial space with the blessing of the Emperor Himself. Thanks to their Warrant of Trade – the Rogue Trader is endowed with privileges and power beyond imagination as well as the task of expanding the borders of the Imperium. At their disposal is a gargantuan voidship of immense power and innumerable servants and personnel ready to do the bidding of their lord. Their adventures begin in the vast Koronus Expanse – a treacherous region of unexplored space at the edge of Humanity’s domain.

80/100

CRPG fans heavily invested in Warhammer 40K will thoroughly enjoy Rogue Trader, but there’s enough backstory and written lore to bring newcomers up to speed and into the fold. Rogue Trader is generous to a fault with combat and sometimes the momentum stalls in the naval combat or over-lengthy tactical battles. Overall, Warhammer 40,000 Rogue Trader is an engaging turn-based RPG and another reminder of how rich the Warhammer universe can be.

8.5/10

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is the sort of game that the Warhammer 40K setting has long needed. A disgustingly massive, social calendar swallowing CRPG offering, Rogue Trader’s numerous presentation issues aren’t enough to distract from its galaxy-spanning odyssey into Games Workshop’s most famous and beloved setting.

7/10

Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is a CRPG worthy of its grimdark sci-fi setting, offering players engaging tactical turn-based combat and an immersive adventure. It lacks polish, and we encountered some frustrating bugs, but deep class customisation and an exploration of the setting like nothing before means there’s plenty to recommend for fans who are willing to take the plunge.
