Warhammer: Space Marine 2 is Coming to a Grim Dark Future Near You
I’d say ever since I became perpetually Warhammer-brained via my review of Battlesector, I’ve wanted a third person action Warhammer game. I mean, you can call me out of touch for not knowing that existed all the way back in 2010 courtesy of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Or, alternatively, you can forgive me for glossing over a game that came out 10 years ago. While a lot of the night was hemming and hawing over a new Alan Wake coming after ten years, there didn’t seem to be a lot of fanfare for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 to come in after a similarly long hiatus.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is being developed by Saber Interactive for The PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. The developers describe the game better than I could, because I didn’t make the game, of course. One thing of note is Saber has recently released the game of the year edition of their horror action game World War Z. I’d love to see them bring some of the design decisions from that game to the Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 universe.
“Embody the superhuman skill and brutality of a Space Marine, the greatest of the Emperor’s warriors, with Clive Standen (Vikings, Taken) as the iconic Captain Titus. Unleash deadly abilities and an arsenal of devastating weaponry to obliterate the relentless Tyranid hordes. Hold at bay the horrors of the galaxy in epic battles on far-flung planets, uncover dark secrets, and drive back the everlasting night to prove your ultimate loyalty to humanity.”
If I thought space marines were cool before, I’m certainly going to be jazzed to check out Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 when it drops hopefully in 2022. You can check out the trailer above and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we know more. You can follow the development more directly here.
