Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor – Martyr receives its biggest update, adding single-player campaign

NeocoreGames has released the biggest content update for Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr to date, adding a new terrain setting, a playable class and the first chapter of the Single Player Campaign. According to the press release, the first chapter of the Single Player Campaign marks the beginning of this epic tale and also serves as a tutorial – it’s an introduction to the unique gameplay mechanics of the game and to the cruel and unforgiving world of Warhammer 40,000.

In the January Update Neocore Games also added the alpha version of the third playable character class to the game.

“The Primaris Psyker Inquisitor requires a very different gameplay style compared to the Crusader and Assassin Inquisitors. Psyker Inquisitors are incredibly powerful, but they must be careful with using their powers, because it may very well turn against them. They channel devastating otherworldly energies, but they always risk damnation doing so.”

The January Update also contains a new terrain setting, gameplay optimization features, bug fixes and much more.
