Unless you’ve sprung for one of the more expensive pre-orders for Warhammer 40k: Rogue Trader, you’ve got a long wait yet to try out the first CRPG in the Warhammer 40k universe. Fortunately, your old pal Wargamer is here to help you out. We’ve got 50 keys for the alpha build of the game, courtesy of Owlcat Games. If you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll know early next week.
Rogue Trader is a classic, isometric RPG. Players take on the role of the newly elevated Rogue Trader of the von Valancius dynasty, and must chart a course among unknown stars to build their fortune and their fame. Along the way you’ll encounter heretical schemers, mysterious companions, and deadly adversaries. You’ll battle hand to hand, in the void of space, all while building your trading empire.
