NeocoreGames, the studio behind The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, has announced Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr, an action-RPG produced with Games Workshop for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with a 2016 release window. A few more details and a teaser after the jump.
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr Announced
Budapest, Hungary – July 16, 2015 – Veteran video game developer, NeocoreGames (King Arthur, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing) is proud to announce a new Action-RPG, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr, produced in close collaboration with Games Workshop, developers and publishers of the well-known Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game and universe.
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is an Action-RPG that not only evokes the dystopian world of the dark and violent 41st millennium, but also becomes the next milestone in the evolution of Action-RPGs.
Building on the experience gained from The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing Action-RPG trilogy, NeocoreGames aims to expand the boundaries of the genre itself by taking the in-game mechanics and visual solutions to a brand new level and also by opening up a persistent sandboxed Action-RPG.
The single player campaign pitches players into a grim and secret war among the stars as the agents of the ever-vigilant Inquisition. After the end of the campaign the story continues in a colossal sandboxed game set in the same secluded sector of this vast universe. This persistent setting grants years of constant entertainment, gradual development and a continuous flow of content that enriches the Action-RPG gameplay.
Coming to PC, Mac, Xbox One and Playstation 4 in 2016, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will be a monumental, brutal and grim experience, undeniably true to the spirit of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
"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."
Zoltán 'Pozs' Pozsonyi, Producer, NeocoreGames
"A Warhammer 40,000 action RPG has been notably absent from our portfolio of video game licenses so far and its great to finally be able to talk publicly about this wonderful game that the guys at Neocore have been working so hard on for some time now. Their previous action RPG's are very impressive and we feel privileged to be partnering with them on this game."
I have a hard time when a fat bomber rolls around on skated with a parasol cocktail in his hand, whilst doing a pseudo-philosophical monologue about life. It's neither funny or cool, it's just dumb. (2 Hours ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, but MGS1 has a good balance, 2 and onward doesn't. IMO. (2 Hours ago)
@Megido: that's the beauty of metal gear :). the mix of realism and (wtf) fantasy (3 Hours ago)

Especially on MGS4, he made it sound like he had a clog of saliva in his throat. (6 Hours ago)
@Megido: I think i'm the minority on this, but the VA for Snake (forgot his name) didn't click with me. (6 Hours ago)
I ca suspend my diabelief for walking tanks and cyber ninjas. Bomb planting fatsos with rocket powered rollerblades is a step too far. (8 Hours ago)
