Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
THQ posted 2 new screens today for the upcoming PS3 game Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
Space Marine looks to be filled with tons of action, and is said to have some RPG elements implemented as well, as your unit will be somewhat customisable. You play as a space marine fighting off an alien orc invasion. You will definitely be fighting along side a squad, however any command of that squad, as well as co-op or multiplayer options are being held tightly under wrap a this time. There are also hints to other races, and possible vehicle involvement.
Here is the great looking trailer.
According to Jerry Edsall, Lead Programmer at Relic Entertainment, “All the action sequences you saw used our brand new game engine. Even that last scene, with the Titan in the distance and the Nuke going off.” The new engine is being called Phoenix, and was built exclusively for console development.
This game is quickly becoming one of my most anticipated games.
