Now if we have a new WH40K vidya that isn't an MMO, I'm thinking one were you play as a Rogue Trader. Do what you want, kill Heretics, have diplomacy with Xenos, lead soldiers into battle. That sort of thing. Anyone else?

There is a Hex-Based Grand Strategy game coming out called Warhammer 40k: Armageddon. Then there is a card-based RTS called Warhammer 40k: Space Wolves. Plus the possibility of DoW 3.

Then there is Warhammer Fantasy: Total War (yet to be confirmed but it's basically is).

As for Rogue Trader games, they're a bit too niche. Many people won't know about RT existence.

Civilization: Total War. IN SPAAAAAACE!

You are a Rogue Trader given the task to explore, conquest and colonize a section of space. You got your fleet, initial resources and a colony. You move through the sector, revealing systems and planets, discovering aliens and dangers, etc. Colonized worlds produce resources for you and grant you bonuses. You can also discover different things, like technology, lost colonies, relics, etc.

There are different factions that need something for you and different allegiances affect your game. Admech will want tech and control over production, Ecclesiarchy shrine worlds, relics, and faith, Munitorum will demand fighting men from the colonies and weapons, etc. You might discover a Maiden World that you can either colonize and make a mortal enemy out of the Eldar while bagging a fine world, or let them be and get people riding our ass about "Why haven't your purged dem xenos yet?" From time to time a crusade might be launched and your loyalty is measured with the resources you put into it.

If you're really good, the High Lords might put a new Marine chapter within your sector, which means you'll have some good friends on your side, as long as they're cool with everything you do and not some pious assholes or total murder freaks.

You also need to have heirs and shit, or you death from old age or an assassin will end the game. Also not meeting the set requirements of your charter, it can be revoked.

>> No.28221451

I'd kill for a Mass Effect-style Inquisitor game.

You'd never get a huge, open-ended, subtle and complex game like that as a tie-in to some shitty /tg/ IP.

No. It's a picture of an RT crew that I played in a few years ago... that was the players all gathered for a group shot.

That's our Explorator. Magos Biologis... from Gryphonne IV. Figured the best way to fight the Tyranid... was to become the Tyranid.

I want an IG FPS made by Tripwire, basically a less-realistic RO2 where IG squads fight chaos cultists. Basically, IG is armed with lasguns (low RoF, good range, damage and accuracy) and better special weapons (meltas, grenade launchers), while cultists have better melee, armed with stubbers (high RoF, bad accuracy) and various bizzare demonic weapons.

Also a survival mode where team of IG veterans fight waves of nids or orks, Killing Floor-style

My castle in the air would be a Gorkamorka MMORPG.

Auto Assault was a short-lived MMORPG. It died a death thanks to a horrifically buggy opening, but it was distinguished by focusing on vehicle combat which is of course the bread-and-butter of the Gorkamorka tabletop game. If Auto Assault could be cleaned up, it would be very interesting.

You are a Nob, and you've just got your own Trukk. Kustomise your wagon with all sorts of Bitz, recruit a Krew of NPC Yoofs and Riggerz, form mobs with other players and their own vehicles to challenge others for valuable Skrapheeps to drag to Mektown. Depending on how you fight enemies you move alignment across a Gorka-Morka scale, which affects what quests you get and personal abilities you unlock.

Generally just EA being a douch-y company. Bioware's games have been getting worse for a while, but ME3 was just the capstone that makes everything else worse.

Try playing through ME knowing everything that happens in ME3, and knowing that not only is every action you do suddenly meaningless in the long run but all of those good deeds you're doing actually manage to either backfire or be completely fucking pointless in the long run.

Plus, y'know, it's much more palatable to put up with shit when you don't know that it's going to end with even worse shit eventually. Feels bad, man.

It's such a shame that GW has to make spehss merines the focal point of every single video game they put out.

Like I understand they are sort of the poster boy of the brand, but really there is so much rich law in 40K that it seems a fucking waste to put all your eggs in one basket.

If 40K could get something like the marvel/avengers film universe happening (obviously not in film, but hopefully you get what im saying), use spehss merins as a springboard for all the other awesome shit there is to discover in 40K you could cater ot so many different demographics.

>a rogue trader total war game
>an inquisitor/rogue trader RPG much like the witcher in space

A first person shooter with call of duty style story progression. Switching between certain imperial forces involved in a conflict.

It seems that there's a point of view being shared amongst the executives of the company - i.e. the people who are least informed about the game itself, and only know about products sold - that Space Marines are the only thing keeping 40k alive.

He didn't mean 'Call of Duty plotting' or 'Call of Duty level design', I'm pretty sure he just meant the alternating campaigns / the perspective shifts, like moving between the British and the Americans in Modern Whatever 3 and the Muricans and the Soviets in the WW2 titles.

For a Rogue Trader game, I always imagine it'd be interesting to have the game sort of be designed like Anno 2070's islands. But instead of having islands, you have a ship or ships in a flotilla flying through space together. Each ship has a limited amount of space, all of which is filled up with excessively low grade or unwanted compartments at first. But as you progress and gain Profit factor you slowly refit your ship from the inside, increasing crew count, improving power ratios to your weapons systems, managing mechanus compartments, etc. etc. Occasionally the flotilla will come under attack and you have to manage your crew and power supplies to keep your ship working while the ship battles generally on it's own, and send troops to deal with boarding parties. Where you choose to go in the universe will determine just what profit there is to be had, perhaps stopping at a military gate will have important navy contacts, or pulling into a xenos system to barter for exotic cargo, or just plunging headfirst into ork territory and seeing how many greenskins you can orbital bombard before they can respond.
