Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor Martyr (W40KIM)

It said: "Unfortunately we have to push back the release date of Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr a few weeks". This postponement is to ensure the best gaming experience possible and to ensure a seamless gameplay.

NeocoreGames, Bigben Interactive, and Games Workshop had previously agreed to release all versions of the game together, which means that Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr had to be delayed on all platforms. That's more than half of the hours in a full seven-day week spent developing a video game.

The three minute trailer then continues to scale up the ladder, showcasing some of the more horrific bosses you'll do battle with, from the Chaos-ridden Terminator, to a giant Exterminator. For one thing, the delay happened not because of any devastating surprise bug, but because Neocore didn't get the release candidate for one of the console versions to manufacturing on time.

"In a nutshell: we have somewhat overestimated our capacity for releasing the game simultaneously on three platforms".

The news is not all doom and gloom for PC players, however, as the PC build now has three extra weeks of polishing, plus the developer will now be providing a Steam Beta build on 21 May. The best part about it is that the bosses they show off aren't even the most unsafe bosses in the game.

"Now that we've messed up the big date of the original announcement anyway, we made a decision to still do one big Beta build update for Steam", he wrote. It's the very first Action-RPG set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This becomes only magnified with the release of a multi-platform video game now in Early Access development, as is the case with Warhammer 40k: Inquisitor - Martyr and their developers on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. As a result, it is keenly anticipated.
