For more than thirty years, Warhammer 40,000 has offered gamers an exciting storyline set in a dystopian science fantasy universe. Adapted from the popular tabletop games into an action role-playing genre, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr pits players against followers of the Chaos Gods set in the 41st millennium. Choose from Psyker, Crusader, or Assassin background classes to perpetually develop your character in a world where you’ll hunt down enemies and wage war against other power factions. Join me as I forge into the darkness…

Comprised of a lengthy campaign story available for single player or co-op gaming, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr initiates players into a grim and secret war among the stars of the Caligari Sector in the Segmentum Tempestus of the Milky Way Galaxy as an agent of the ever-vigilant Inquisition. After completing the campaign, the Inquisitor story continues in an enormous sandboxed game set within this same secluded sector of this universe.

Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor - Martyr Review Intro

You begin by creating a character from backgrounds in Psyker, Crusader, or Assassin classes.

According to the game, Psykers are sanctioned mutants, disdained, yet essential to the Imperium. They channel otherworldly energies to banish Daemons, but they always risk damnation and deadly backlash from the Immaterium. Inquisitors with a Primaris Psyker background are experts in harnessing the boundless power of the Warp. In combat they rely on their psychic powers, preferring light armor and psychically attuned weapons.

The tactical Crusader, the holy warrior of the Adeptus Ministorum, is a good choice for run-and-gun style players. Crusaders display their devotion to the Emperor as honor guards or executioners, and such is the zeal of the Crusaders that it makes them ideal recruits for the Inquisition. Inquisitors with the Crusader background are fearsome warriors using heavy armor and weaponry. On the battlefield they relentlessly march through fire, like the legendary Juggernauts of the old Terran myths. They are the slowest of the three agent archetypes, trading mobility for protection and firepower.

Lastly, the Death Cult Assassin is a specialist of deceit who expresses her worship through death. Death Cults can be found on many Imperial worlds, paying their tithe to the Emperor with the culling of Heretics, Traitors and other enemies of Mankind. Inquisitors with a Death Cult background are deadly assassins, experts in hit-and-run tactics and exotic weapons. In combat they rely on their acrobatic skills and speed, preferring lighter armor and weapons.
