Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr Video Showcases Environment Destruction

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.

    That’s cool. If the enemy AI is decent it could make it a fun experience.

    As long as they are good games I cannot complain.

    Huh-looks pretty good. Is this a dungeon crawler or an actual RPG with travel etc?

    This is from the guys that did The Incrible Adventures of Van Helsing, so while I always wanted a 40K ARPG, I will wait until release to judge with minimal expectations since they royally fucked up the third installment of Van Helsing.

    I see you haven’t played Final Cut which fixed everything wrong about the 3rd one.

    That bolter sound needs to be made 300% meatier but other than that this looks pretty good.

    I thought Final Cut was a remake of the first one and bought all three separetely on Steam. I’m going to go hang myself now.

    Final Cut is all 3 games merged into one with some much needed rebalancing, some new content and improvements in general. It’s basically the game they originally wanted to make but couldn’t due to financial reasons hence why it was split into 3 to begin with.
