A new trailer has been revealed for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, showcasing the latest Warhammer 40,000 game.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine was a cult classic among Warhammer fans, a fun-but-flawed third-person shooter and brawler where fans took on the mantle of Captain Titus, a captain of the Ultramarines, as his chapter assaults an Ork and Chaos-infested planet.
A new trailer showed exactly where the sequel is going to take the game, following up on its reveal at the 2021 Game Awards.
Space Marine 2 trailer shows off gorgeous new gameplay
Space Marine 2 comes more than a decade after its predecessor, and the new gameplay and cinematics revealed make it clear just how far it has come.
In the trailer, fans see Titus, now demoted to a Lieutenant of the Ultramarines after being carried off by the Inquisition at the end of the first game, taking on a Tyranid swarm in a variety of locales across an Imperial world. The Tyranids are an uncomprehensible alien threat from beyond the bounds of the Milky Way galaxy, making them the perfect enemies for the bloody and visceral shoot-and-brawl fest that Space Marine 2 seems to be.
In the trailer, Titus recites an oath of moment, a sacred vow pledged by the Adeptus Astartes, or Space Marines, before a battle. Titus takes a variety of weaponry to the Tyranid foe, wielding bolters, power swords, thunder hammers, and more as he shreds his way through jungle scapes, Munitorum hallways, and the gothic architecture of the hive city.
Taking a focus on tight, controlled combat against hordes of enemies, the trailer shows off gorgeous visuals and stunning loyalty to the source material.
With Titus having crossed the Rubicon Primaris to become a Primaris Space Marine, many fans see him propelling himself about with a jetpack as a sign of new Space Marine models to come in the tabletop wargame. Space Marine 2 is slated for an unannounced release date sometime in 2023.
