It seems like every week we get a new game set in the Warhammer universe, so why not add another to that list?
This time we head to the world of 40k, as we finally get a sequel to one of the most popular Warhammer games released in recent years. Space Marine 2 is finally upon us. Having released back in 2011 to critical acclaim, it feels like a decade since we last had a game in the series. That’s because we have, so it’s about time we got a sequel.
Players will take control of one of the most iconic characters in gaming, as Captain Titus and his Ultramarine Space Marines squadron. Arguably the poster-children of the 40k universe, the Ultramarines are what most people think of when they think of Space Marines and Warhammer 40k.
The game is coming to PC, PS5, and Xbox, though we don’t have a release date at this time. With this year being the 10th anniversary of the release of the first game, we can only assume the developer had hoped to get it out in 2021, however, that’s not possible, so we’ll settle for a reveal. The game is being developed by a new studio, Saber Interactive, with the previous title in the series being developed by Relic.
Details from the game’s website:
The galaxy is in peril. Entire worlds are falling. The Imperium needs you. Embody the superhuman skill and brutality of a Space Marine, the greatest of the Emperor’s warriors. 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.
