In a little over a month since hitting the shelves, Warhammer 40k: Rogue Trader has impressively reached the 500,000 sales milestone. The developers commemorated this achievement by revealing an accolades trailer and rolling out the game's first significant update.

For those eager to see the accolades and learn more about the update, details are provided below:

The inaugural major update for Warhammer 40k: Rogue Trader, labeled Version 1.1, has been deployed, introducing a plethora of adjustments and enhancements. Key highlights include:

  • Combat Balance Revisions: A comprehensive overhaul of abilities, weapon statistics, and combat scenarios.
  • Expanded Voiceover Work: The introduction of new dialogue in the game's prologue and additional exchanges between companions.
  • Ulfar Rebalance: An upgrade to Ulfar's starting gear suitable for the Adeptus Astartes, enhancements to his basic stats, and improved abilities, including a stronger 'Go For The Throat' skill and the ability for allies to use Ulfar as a shield.
  • Bug Rectifications: A wide array of fixes addressing both minor and significant issues related to abilities and items.

The complete list of changes is available for those interested in the specifics.

This substantial patch demonstrates the game developers' commitment to refining the game based on player feedback.

Additionally, the game's soundtrack has now been made available across major music streaming platforms, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the auditory experience of the Warhammer 40k universe.
