The depths of lore buried throughout the Warhammer 40k universe is almost unfathomable. Games Workshop sells games. We know that for a fact. They have been selling games for years and their incredible writers continue to build these incredibly believable universes with which we can explore through our imagination. This is a perfect recipe for video games. Today, if a dev company manages to get into bed with GW for one of their licences, then that dev is usually on to a winner.
For 40K this was not possible a few years ago, as THQ had the Warhammer 40K licence locked down. But thankfully today we get to announce another new WH 40K relationship. Neocore are making Warhammer 40000 Inquisitor Martyr, a persistent sandbox action-RPG.
Other exciting Warhammer titles on the horizon include Total War: Warhammer and Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide. We are expecting to see Martyr at some point in 2016, but it sounds like Neocore (also responsible for the incredibly popular Van Helsing and King Arthur) will be designing Martyr, so that they can create ongoing bolt on content for the sandbox action RPG.
This will be good. We have always enjoyed Neocores approach to the games they develop. They always bravely take on huge challenges, often well beyond their large indie development studio status and manage to deliver time and time again. We look forward to seeing what they can do in this imaginative 40K universe.
