Season of the Warp Surge is here!

 

Inquisitors, 

After extinguishing the Inferno, a new threat looms on the horizon. Season of the Warp Surge, the latest content update for Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor is here! Heretics are still rampaging across the Caligari Sector, and an agent of the Emperor is needed to investigate - and strike down on - them. Be careful where you step, though! Warp anomalies might pop up anywhere, and, by the nature of the Warp, you'll never know what will happen next. Will you be granted power beyond measure, or will you have to face enemies of immense strength?

A full overview of the new Season features can be found here - make sure to check it out to see the new mechanics, objectives and more.
 

Based on your feedback about our previous seasonal ladder, we've also reworked several things, including the co-op experience, the inventory, and Tarot Cards. Curious to find out more? Read the patch notes below!


Patch 2.3.4


New features

  • Co-Op matchmaking got removed and replaced by a reworked Recruitment panel:
  • Using Recruitment will allow players to create their own lobbies
  • In order to launch a Co-op mission at least 2 players are required to be in a lobby
  • The host of the lobby can set the following:
    • The minimum player level. Players below that level won't be able to join
    • The name of the lobby
    • The mission type (Tarot, Intel, Warzone and Starmap missions along with Priority Assignments can be set)
    • The difficulty level of the mission - 6 different levels available
  • Lobbies won't be disbanded after the players return to the Command Bridge from a mission
  • Two new Stasis Casket tabs will be available for players
    • One tab will be granted upon completing Tier 3 in Season of the Warp Surge
    • The other one will be granted if one links their in-game account with their Neocore Account. If one already has their accounts linked, this tab will automatically appear in their Stasis Casket
  • By pressing Ctrl + Mouse2, even a full stack of Tarot Card consumables can be activated immediately. This is indicated in the tooltip of the cards as well.
  • The level 70 restriction on Starmap missions was removed. Mission level will now scale up to level 107 and the maximum mission level reachable with Tarot cards will be 118
  • Intel missions can now be abandoned on the Mission Deployment window
  • From now on, clicking on locked features under the Modify tab will redirect the player to the Tech Tree and the corresponding Tech option will be highlighted
  • The Mission Deployment level cap has been changed. It will be accessible right after the five tutorial missions
  • The Void Crusades' minimum level requirement has also been changed:
    • They will be accessible after reaching level 35
    • Void Shards will start dropping after reaching level 30
    • After unlocking Void Crusades, players will be granted 5 Void Shards of the same type (the type will be randomly decided) so they will be able to launch their first Crusade right away
  • Changed the display of various Killstreak bonuses


Fixed bugs

  • Fixed various crash issues
  • Fixed various problems related to reconnecting to missions after a disconnect. The problem with reconnecting to other players' Co-Op party was also fixed
  • Fixed an issue where Archeotech items could drop without a relic enchant on them
  • Fixed an issue where various objects could be highlighted which caused targeting problems primarily with Channeled skills
  • The Power Sword's Wide Strike now properly applies on-hit effects
  • Fixed an issue under the Extras panel which did not let players purchase certain cosmetic items for Fate points and they received a Transaction error message
  • The Meme Virus consumable's effect was not indicated on the Mission Briefing Window. This has been fixed
  • Fixed a rare issue where the Wandering Servoskull did not spawn in the Amber and Viridian Crusades
  • Fixed the Volkite Psalm which did not increase DoT duration
  • Fixed the Haemotoxins DoT passive skill which did not increase DoT duration
  • After meeting Inquisitor Korax, he repeated a sentence in our conversation with him. This has been corrected
  • The enchant "Gain Focused state when using a channeled ability" did not work with the Greatsword's Spinning Blow skill. This has been fixed
  • Fixed a Starmap mission on which the character could not access one of the Mortars to deactivate it
  • Fixed an issue where the non-seasonal System Protectors' name appeared under their seasonal counterparts. It was only a name-display problem, the rewards were gained by those players who reached this title
  • Removed the Seeds of Corruption DLC from the Priority Assignment list for those players who don't own it

Another possible oversight for the Psyker - there seems to be no Psychic Power that allows using the "Supression Stymulus" Psychic Mastery.

Also, their melee tree includes "Weapon Mastery" (+5% Critical Chance Combo Skills), but there are no Psyker weapons with the "Combo" tag.

One thing that appears to be an oversight: the "Psychic Boon" Psyker perk (+100% duration for Psychic Power buffs) has little value with the new blessing model (very long duration but large warp heat reserve). It should be changed to reflect that (e.g. "-33% warp heat reserve for Psychic Power buffs").

Good to know about the shards, that makes sense.

Thank you for checking on the melee psyker weapons. To clarify, it appears that Biomantic and Force Swords were changed in this weird way (huge cooldown), but the Aether Blade retains a normal cooldown.

@LORD BZAARK‍ indeed, this is a bug which will fix early next week.


@CHACUMBELE‍ the drop rate of higher level shards will be lowered, this is in our plans to do. I'm not sure atm what is going on with the Melee Psyker weapons but we will check them and if necessary you can expect further changes.

This patch looks great! You even included some tweaks I recommended on a suggestion thread (e.g. tarot cards raising mission base level, less shards required for each upgrade, some improvements to underpowered passives, etc.).


I still have some doubts however:

  • Melee weapons for the Psyker class now have huge cooldowns, so they work more as spells than weapons. I'm not sure I like this at all - for starters, this makes the whole melee passive tree useless for them.
  • If less shards are required now for each upgrade, I feel that we should get less high level shard drops.

Good day I was wondering if there were plans to release a patch to fix the Angel Of Death buff you get from crits as the current 10 crits 1 sec in between is unrealistic and can barely be achievable even with supreme critical chance stacking it went from getting the buff a lot too getting it rarely if even sometimes creating a barrier only extremely late game gear grinding can achieve for experts but not for regular players anymore also clarification should be made that the crit procs have to be for a singular target in a row I'm trying to unlock the achievement by getting Angels of Death and this is not gonna be a very pleasant experience do let us know if anything is gonna be done about this

Well, I don´t understand how it can be so hard. ANyway. Press in and HOLD in the F key, and then while you still HOLD in the F key, you press down the SHIFT key. And there you go. Yoiu have been locked in position. And at the same time as you are locked in position as this, you will also see that the Data Machine is being read at the same. Or the scanning if you rather call it that. This is also the case for these Artifacts around. Which is beng done in the exact same manner.

Yepp, that's what we did at least 5-6 times already but could not get into that bugged state.


I will give it another chance later today, hopefully I will have some luck this time around.

@FUSIONDANTE40K‍ it was intentional to rebalance the Psyker class as it was head and shoulders above the rest. Some polishing may still arrive later but most of the changes will remain as they are now.

I´m not sure how it is impossible for you to reconstruct or reproduce this thing I´m talking about. I just quite simply don´t get it, really. What is so hard about it? The only thing you do is hold down F key, and then you quite simply press the SHIFT key. Then you quite simply click the mouse for walking, which doesn´t work then. ANd then you press a couple 1´s & 2´s for using Abilities, which again, doesn´t work. The one and only thing you can do is to watch that Datahunt machine filling it up itself and press the key for your Inoculator to Heal.


I could easily reconstruct the happening for the same amount of fingers I´m having on both my hands, for the same time it takes for me to write this. It´s so extremely easy to do it. I even sometimes do it on purpose in Datahunt & Artifact Missions just for the heck of it + having some extra thrills. Lol. I´m having and doing it on an very old Keyboard I still use for everything, which is a A4 Tech keyboard. But I doubt that is the reason for it to happen.

-Please change the Psychic powers Endurance and Precognition back to before the update. 

-Please remove or lower the warp reserve.

-Please reduce the Witchfire cooldown back to 6 sec. and increase the radius back to large.

Playing psykers dosn´t make fun anymore.

-Please Update the Psalm code effects cause some does´nt do what has been written. 

-Please return the code: galvanic, iron, terminus back to: Each kill halves the remaining cooldown of skills.

The Warp Pillar anomaly is considered by the game as a construct? This sounds interesting, we will have to check if this is the case. Thanks for reporting the issue!

@AFEDIENKO‍ that was not intentional. If Archeotech items are no longer available in the Ordo store we will restore them!


@MARGORACH‍ there is a chance (cannot guarantee) that there will be Co-Op in Void Crusades with our next bigger patch!

@BROTHER KUNDARI‍ the end of the Season hasn't been specified just yet - similar to Season 1. It will be available for months though.
The Datahunt problem is still a big question on our end due we are unable to reproduce the bug.

@KHORNESUNCLE‍ this issue will get fixed early next week!


@NOXCODEX‍ could you please elaborate this problem with the Tarot card changes in a new thread? I would like to get a better picture about it.

Thank you for unhiding the 30% Tarot card all (including experience) bonus which as stated sounds/looks like an increase but actually isn't. I've been playing for over a year with some breaks yet my highest toon is 88 after more than usual effort on one toon over last few months. If I couldn't get one toon to max level in one year what incentive is there to dabble in a seasonal toon?

You get random assignments from the priority assignment guy (astropath). When his menu pops up, just select 'random assignment' (should be the top one).

Ok, been busy a few hours with new Season now, Lvl 20+ something so far.

An astounding amount of Foxes and whatnot. It´s just amazing. But one thing I noticed that still hasn´t been fixed is... the while holding fown the F, and if you also at the same time presses SHIFT, you get completely LOCKED and is unable to move or do anything else. Except for the fact that you can use the Inoculator. Cmon. Go on. Fix it.

According to the compendium, 

this is zone of malevolence 


and this is zone of manifestation. However, it seems these two are switched in the game.

37 days ago
So, maybe so that I can progress out of the first tier unlike last Season, can someone please define the difference between a "random mission" and a "random assignment"? They sound the same to me. The former is clearly listed and can be chosen.  I could never get any advancement for the latter last Season. Otherwise, not really seeing a point in participating in this new Season, being stuck at 19/20 for its duration.

Thanks for the patch, loving this game so far!


What i noticed in the new season: when the message about warp effect pops up on the screen it has invisible screenwide are around it, and if your mouse points inside this area clicks aren't being registered.  So you can't move, can't attack. I depicted approximate size of that layer.


Upd. It seems to be clickable to the left from the message but bottom and right areas are unclickable untill the message begins to fade away.

Ok, so... had a look at this/these Challenge Tree/Trees/Tiers.

And I do like some of them. And I see some of the very same ones as well just as from Inferno Ssn, which I was hoping would not be present, to be honest. Hoped for more variety, but ok. It is forgiveable.

The ones I, in my personal opinion at least, did NOT liked, were the fact that again these Complete the FULL Void Crusades with/without Mission Timer has been snuck in again. These in my opinion is/was one of the MOST tedious and timeconsuming and THE most frustrating ones I actually managed to do.

And then there is this Complete ALL 9 Void Crusades. Does this mean just complete them in a normal/regular manner, or does it actually means Complete ALL 9 Void Crusades including getting ALL Fragments AND Keys?

I do assume it is complete a Void Crusade (9) in a normal manner (like 5-10 Missions) incl. the Supreme Miss..

And last... The time for this Season to last? Same as last one, or actually less?

Please check on the following options, they will hopefully help you download the latest update:

  • Restart your PC
  • Clear the download cache here: Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Clear Download Cache
  • Verify the integrity of the game in Steam: Right-click on the game in your library then: Properties -> Local Files -> Verify Integrity of Game Files

There are a few more options but hopefully they won't be necessary as they require bigger intervention (change the download region etc.)

Let me know if these helped.

Same for me. There is no game update in the Steam queue. When I launch the game, it tells me I need to update first, but Steam has no Martyr update for me.


Tried changing the settings, switching between all update options - 'always keep the game up to date', 'only update when I launch it', 'high priority...'. They have no effect, still no game update for me. Presumably, the manual update when launching the game option should prompt me to update and prevent me from launching the game, but it doesn't. It just starts Martyr normally, without any updating.


I also tried restarting Steam, but it doesn't help either...
