Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Summary
“KILL THA SPACE MARINE!”
What fate ultimately lay before Captain Titus from Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine? Director Raphael van Lierop reveals what "big plans" he had for Titus had THQ not dissolved into bankruptcy.
A second game would have seen a very different Titus, effectively 'going rogue' as he becomes exiled. The third and final instalment would have been redemption of sorts.
This week, Rayman 3 HD, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and Warriors Orochi 3 head the list of games hitting PlayStation Network, along with a metric ton of downloadable content for Ace Combat: Assault Horizon.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine fans are excited as Relic Entertainment has posted a tweet stating, "We have a big metal surprise coming to @SpaceMarine in January – Merry Christmas from Relic!", accompanied by an image of a Space Marine fighting what appears to be a Dreadnought.
Games Brief's Nicholas Lovell presented a session at the London Games Conference, where over 70 percent of 160 attendees voted THQ a 'zero' for surviving a digital transition.
Senior publishing figures were among those who voted. THQ's lack of must-have properties is the problem. Next week they release Volition's Saints Row: The Third.
THQ and Relic Entertainment have announced a second DLC for Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, and it adds to Exterminatus co-op with a new mode called Chaos Unleashed.
It lets fans play as a Chaos Space Marine fighting off Orks and Imperial Guard Forces. Also included are three new multiplayer maps, new boss rounds, and a new enemy unit.
