This is a stand alone game coming out late in July.

Yeah not exactly sure how I feel about it being "standalone" - the thing people are complaining about is you can't go back and re-play the base game campaign as the new class, which just seems like LAZINESS from the devs that they didn't want to rework another series of voice acting with the new class to be able to play through both the base game and the "expansion" - but at the current sale price, regardless, this is a fun game and I've already gotten my money's worth - not much else right now that I'm playing or looking forward to within 30 days or so, so it worked out just fine for me.

Is this game anything like Warhammer 40k Dawn of War? I enjoy playing that game and it's DLC's but have read bad reviews on DOW2 and so on.

That is just odd for an ARPG. These Van Helsing devs have always been kinda weird though..

Nope. It's an Action-RPG like Diablo etc.

The DOW2 base campaign and co-op are VERY well done. Just don't expect the level of base-building and RTS strategy that you're accustom to in the original DOW.... (I feel DOW2 caught a lotta flack when it actually did a lot of things REALLY right)

Tried it didn't like the controls when zoomed out everything looks the same. I like the graphics and sounds but gameplay just isn't there. Played for about a hour just refunded it..... One of those top down game that makes you feel like shit after a while because it's 3-D top down. My character said "feel the burn" basically that is what the game did to me.

Warhammer Mechanicus is alot better :D and so is Grim Dawn :D

MAJOR UPDATE
POSTED
Tue, 19 November 2019 09:30 EST by Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - MartyrContent Update for Inquisitor - 2.2.0 - Nov 19
Weekly buffs, a new event, new PvP maps, and new rewards in the latest update for Inquisitor!

Updates to W40K: Inquisitor will be released. The updates will be applied automatically after the scheduled maintenance and when your Steam client (in on-line mode) is restarted.

New Features

Weekly Buffs

Starting today, the Caligari Sector will have an unique bonus rotating weekly. With each freshly activated buff, players will gain an advantage in different activities. Weekly Buffs reset on Mondays with Glory.
The full list of the weekly buffs can be found here.

New Event: Edict of Termination

The Caligari Conclave has identified eight enemies of the Imperium as primary targets in need of immediate elimination. In His name they shall be obliterated from existence.

Enemies of the Imperium can now spawn instead of Villains during Missions. By defeating them, players are rewarded Fate, Credits, and gear - however, if all eight Targets are eliminated, the rewards are much more valuable - gather Favour, Loot Chests, Psalms, and Consumables!

Just in case, the Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor - Martyr Complete collection is on sale at Steam to $17.

I'm on the fence; Who's played after the 2.0 changes? How would this compare gameplay-wise against Wolcen or Grim Dawn?

Wayyyyy better than Wolcen..

Not in the same league as Grim Dawn / Path of Exile. (but what is really..)

DEF worth $17.

- I picked up the Prophecy expansion cuz that's also on sale right now. If that's any indicator....

It's on sale- 66% off, including all DLC ($16.99 base game / $27.19 for the whole pile).

Which DLC's are worth it?

Yeah, I looked through most of the DLC and figured why not grab it all. The only silly thing I saw was a whopping sixty-six cents. D/L in progress now.

I've played a little of all three classes, and the Psycker seems the most fun. This is not Diablo but a very fun game.

it gets better, the skill trees are really complex

After seeing this game launch with fairly mixed to negative reviews, I decided to check it out to see how it is doing in 2020. They have made a massive amount of improvements and after about 5 hours of play, I can say I am really enjoying it.

Definitely not as polished as many other ARPGs out there and does have a certain level of jank that anyone familiar with the Van Helsing series will have experienced. However, the amount of content, customization and systems that are in play really make this game worth checking out.

They are now doing Seasons in a similar fashion to Diablo 3 which adds another layer of reasons to play. So far I am very impressed!

I get tired of the Grimdark, but it's about the best overall Wharhammer realtime game I've ever played.
