Neocore Games has shared the first of their “Inquisitorial Log” video updates for Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.
Featured above, the new video introduces one of the most integral features in the upcoming shooter: environment destruction.
Over on the Neocore Games Blog, the developer talked up the environment destruction, as well as the action-RPG gameplay:
In the grim future there is only WAR and in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr our goal is to faithfully evoke the atmosphere of the violent 41st millennium; environmental destruction plays a very important role in that. As the players tear chunks out of walls with their kinetic weapons or simply vaporize whole sections of the area, it will make them feel like they’re fighting a real war.
Of course destruction is not only a cosmetic feature. The covers that the players and the enemies can both use are also destructible, which adds another tactical layer to the Action-RPG gameplay. Covers provide a more realistic approach to close range, visceral firefights and both the players and the creatures can effectively employ these positions to mitigate incoming damage.
Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr is launching across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime later this year.
