Patch 1.2 Overview Trailer

The Owlcat team is hard at work, continuing the evolution of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader and its upcoming DLC, Void Shadows. Today, the cRPG developer is excited to share a new trailer for Void Shadows focused on the Lord Captain’s newest companion and details on the massive, just-released patch 1.2.

It is there that the paths and destinies of the Rogue Trader and Kibellah, an outstanding Assassin in the cult,  will intertwine. Find out how strong her loyalty is and whether there is something even deeper and more personal hidden behind it while facing the xeno threat emerging from the bowels of the voidship.
