Inquisitor - Martyr: Patch v0.8.0 - May 22


Updates to W40K: Inquisitor - Martyr have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client (in on-line mode) is restarted. It is also recommended to delete any launch parameters you previously had (you can re-add them if they help again, but it is safer to assume everything works best without them). Please also note that the backend server might take up to 30 minutes to transfer to the newest update, during which time login will not be possible.

NOTE: Language support for French, German, Russian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Hungarian will be added soon (in the next couple days)

Due to the drastic amount of changes within game mechanics, all accounts have been wiped as per our previous announcements.

New Features

Ok so when you say the old levelling system has been removed and a new one is in its place, my understanding being that the old levlleing system meant that co op was really unrewarding in terms of hardly any gain in xp and gaining better gear compared to the single player campaign, does this new levelling system remedy that?

Thanks in advance

Thanx for the neww huge great patch...content is great so leep on adding new kind of map, kind of ennemis, etc....

Unfortunatly, this great game need to be really quickly moooooore optimised.

Thanks !

Change the language ... how do I do it? I do not see any option other than English.

OMG what did you do to Caius Thorn?!?!

His picture/video in missions looked awesome, BEFORE this patch!!!
Now he's not only incredibly ugly in comparison, low quality also, on top of that it's massively visibly not synced with what he says.

It looked awesome before this patch, now it looks like some bloody amateur did his first animation attempts. -.-

....why would you deliberately break something like that?!?

Also this whole thing looks like it's getting worse in every single step:
- logged in => mouse invisible on the game (working, but invisible cursor) until alt-tab out and in again
- first perk unlock (12 casts in 10 seconds or so) => perk invisible under "completed" per unlocks => also not visible in the characters per selection

Sorry to be late for THESE patch notes, yet, there are 2 things here...


Will there be another wipe on the "launch" of the game?!
... june isn't so far away, and it would be INCREDIBLY disappointing, if not say outright stupid to do things like grinding 5k fate ...again, only to have them wiped in a few days.
So, wipe inc or not?!

Removing the account leveling is stupid and even the explanation is half-hearted and not thought through,
sorry to say it that harsh, but that's how it is.

You still have the perks/attributes that are unlocked account wide, and that are partly incredibly grindy to get.
This is already an account wide leveling system!

Having an "Account Rank" ... what NOT clear about that?!

=> The only thing this changes, is that new chars are now more difficult to make, and the player is deprived of all the progress already made, especially disappointing for players who knew it differently.
And it gave you something more to link your characters to each other, giving you more incentive to explore other classes and builds, which is or at least should be an integral part of this game!

Hell, even D3 had something like this added later on!
(D3 is a shitty game that does not even deserve the name as it only takes the story of D1/D2 without being an actual successor of these games, but that's not really relevant here.)
And they had it for a reason, and it was good.

Is there anything more to say?
Well, yea, I just hope you'll revert that... which would be easy to do, even if you removed the account level part completely, by simply initializing the account level based on the cumulative experience of all characters on that account, to not have players start their account rank at zero while having high level characters.


I have no idea what you did with this patch to effect performance that way, but simply put:
- before this patch, everything ran super smooth on high settings
- after this patch, constant lagging even with everything disabled/low

I just want to say that I am incredibly pumped for this game. From everything I have seen and read, it is going to be fantastic. It seems like you guys are really committed to the game and I hope that continues after release. I wish the console version was going to be as polished as the PC version, but I am hoping that you will be releasing updates as needed. But as long as the game works for release, I will be happy.

Seriously though. Do not abandon console gamers after release, for the love of the Emperor.

I promise we won't abandon console gamers. :) The console version will be awesome - I can promise that too! ;)

Are the Perk effects not shown as buffs or are a ton of them not working?

Kudos to the whole Team on the huge amount of work that has gone into this. You all deserve much beer <3

Looking forward to seeing all the changes as i took a slight break for a couple of months, 

Guess i should jump back on that Hype Train now though.


4 years 260 days ago

Love the new map tiles, enemies, and encounter types in campaign. Two Issues I've had so far are difficulty slider on missions does not increase glory or fate and roll to cursor is gone from controls and needs to come back.

4 years 260 days ago
Are there executions against regular enemies now, or that aspect of game is still works only on bosses?
4 years 260 days ago
No, that's our release date. This is still not the final product, but the game is now in Beta. 
4 years 260 days ago

Didnt they say it was delayed to 5 June ?

4 years 260 days ago

Good times!! - odd question will there be another wipe at 1.0?

4 years 260 days ago
Great job! Can't wait to play with it :)
