Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is a 2-in-1 gaming package brought to us by the people behind The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing, Neocore Games. The company decided to move away from the gothic-noir mythology of their earlier games to bring us to a grim sci-fi realm that is Warhammer 40K. The videogame was developed from the popular tabletop game of the same name. But instead of just one game, the gaming company decided to bring us two action RPGs in one package.
Double the Action With Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr
It is quite unorthodox for an action RPG to have its story split into two games, but that did not stop Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr. It was the company’s decision to make it this way in order to assist in differentiating the various aspects found in Martyr’s gameplay. It was made this way to capture the spirit of the Inquisitor class while all the while letting players have a choice as to what type of content they wish to tackle.
Players are free to choose and switch between modes, but Viktor Juhász, the game’s lead writer, says that it is recommended to play story mode first.
The writer also states that the story mode of this Warhammer 40K game will be the traditional single player action-RPG that serves an experience to an overall introduction of the 40K universe. It also introduces the Inquisitor as a class. The game also sets up the new mechanics that will be implemented in a different manner as compared to their Van Helsing franchise. Again, players are still advised to start with the Inquisitorial campaign first.
While the story mode has a more contained structure, the Inquisitorial campaign is a sandbox mode that is built for a more dynamic gaming experience. The story mode, on the other hand, places the player in a more contained structure as they are in an Alien-like scenario. While in the story mode, players will investigate an ancient spaceship while doing what it means to survive.
The Inquisitorial campaign is playable with up to 4 players. It allows gamers to freely explore the game’s massive worlds, which are all completely randomly generated. Players will experience a tale that will be specifically triggered by the actions they take. Hence, there is no single path to victory.
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr also has a base building side of the game. Players are encouraged to build their own personal fortress, or even invade those built by other online gamers.
