Warhammer 40k: Space Marine is returning after more than a decade. During The Game Awards, Focus Home Interactive and Saber Interactive announced Warhammer 40k: Space Marine 2, a sequel to the third-person shooter first released in 2011.
The new trailer shows everything you’d expect from a Warhammer 40K game: Space Marines, Tyranids, and Chainswords. It will star Titus, an Ultramarines captain and hero of the original game.
“Space Marine may stumble here and there, but manages to remain entertaining from start to finish. For every moment where a character gets stuck on part of the environment, has an animation that breaks, or just randomly pops into the world, I’m left remembering great boss battles and encounters that made me feel like a badass,” we wrote in in our original Warhammer 40k: Space Marine review. “It may not be the best or most original action game, but it’s a fine first outing for the franchise, and a rare gem for Warhammer fans.”
The new Warhammer 40k: Space Marine will apparently take cues from World War Z, Quake Champions, and other games. But at its heart, it’s still the third-person shooter we knew and loved back in the day.
It will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
