Space Marine Preview

IGN has posted a battle trailer for the upcoming game "Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine".

The game is a 3rd person action game that brings the player down to a personal level, controlling a Space Marine through a campaign. Unlike other Relic games (Dawn of War series, natch.) this game doesn't feature the Blood Ravens, but the Ultra Marines (at least based on the trailer). I'm not sure why the switch, but based on the awesome awesomeness of the video, I don't care. It wouldn't matter what Space Marine chapters were used. The game$*!

Now I have to buy a console, since this game will be specific to the XBox 360 and Playstation 3.

You can read the preview article and watch the trailer over at IGN.


  1. I have to say it's a little disappointing the Blood Ravens aren't keeping GW's video game love, but I agree, the video is awesome, regardless of the chapter they used.

    Tell you what, GW... give me a Blood Ravens Codex, and I'll call it even. >=]

  2. I'm kinda miffed at playing the boys in blue, hopefully you get to choose, but I doubt it. The game looks great so far, but I'm still waiting on the Dawn of War II port!
