Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Screens, Info and Developer DiaryBy Rick Givens | May 25, 2011 | News | No comments | Share
Two things that are awesome, Warhammer 40,000 and Marines, okay so I am a little predisposed towards the latter, but combine the two and you get double bad ass: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Ser for release this summer, Space Marine will be third person, action oriented game developed by Relic Entertainment for THQ and released on the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, featuring both Single Player and Multiplayer gameplay featuring Co-Op and Versus modes.
The storyline is based on Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 tabletop strategy game, but looks nothing like little painted miniatures, nope in this one players take the role of Captain Titus, a Space Marine. An ork invasion of an Imperial Forge World; an entire planet covered by factories, responsible for producing weapons and armor for the Imperium of Man. The Warboss leading the ork invasion is attempting to steal and salvage a walking 100 foot tall tank known as a Warlord class Battle Titan. Captain Titus is sent, along with his Company of Space Marines and Imperial Guard, to prevent the Warboss from getting his hands on the devastating machine.
Not a whole lot of other details are known at this point. For instance, even though Co-Op and Versus modes are referenced, there is no mention of the other playable characters, whether the other team will be Orks, other Space Marines or flying Monkeys with broomsticks strapped to their asses. The home page is a little sparse right now, offering only a basic game overview and some trailers, and nothing else. Of course, as the game approaches the launch date, that will fill up quicker than a wino at an open bar, so keep tabs. Just remember one thing, if you have already registered on any other THQ games page, then your sign in name will likely be the same for this one. I learned that one the hard way after about 3 hours of cursing, kicking my furniture and staring at my laptop balefully… I know, Derp.
Screens and a developer diary below, don’t forget to check back often, I might have some other goodies to report on.
