Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader will have multiple notable factions and now there is a quick video to give you a crash course on each of them.

Warhammer 40K universe is vast and intriguing but not everyone in the world is a fan of it nor have they read up about the whole thing. 

Owlcat Games seem to be well aware of that and they prepared a video that gives a quick but highly descriptive glance at the major players in Rogue Trader .

From tyrants over has-beens and sadists to the nutjobs who just want to ruin everyone's day, Rogue Trader has it all.

Tyrants in this case are humans, or rather the body that governs a vasts amount of them - The Imperium. Its domain spans millions of planets but it has also suffered 10,000 years of strife, abuse and decadence, which led it to the sorry state it's currently in. Despite the prolonged period of devolution, Imperium is still a fearsome faction in the grimdark future.

Space elves, or the Aeldari, have two major groups - Asuryani and Drukhari. Asuryani are the descendants of the once-glorious Aeldari who succumbed to vice and extreme hedonism that led to the fall of their empire. These remnants are still quite powerful but their numbers are dwindling. Encounters with humans usually end in bloodshed but there have been occasions where they cooperated.

Drukhari, on the other hand, are not interested in any form of cooperation with anyone. They embraced the dark side of hedonism and now live for the next bit of torture and pain they can inflict on anything they get their hands on.

Finally, there is Chaos. A pile of daemons, former humans possessed by daemons and general manifestations of any nightmare you can dream up. They are just here to make everyone's day miserable. Therefore it is strongly recommended to avoid them or better yet - employ those bolters, sniper rifles and psyker powers to erase them from existence when applicable.
