Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 looks absolutely stunning

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 looks absolutely stunning

A new gameplay trailer has arrived for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 - and it looks absolutely stunning.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine II has received a brand new gameplay trailer, courtesy of Saber Interactive and Focus Entertainment, and we had to admit, it looks pretty dang stunning.

Can you believe it’s been 12 years since Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine was released? That makes me feel one thing and one thing only: old. Developed by Relic Entertainment, the third-person hack-n-slash title was released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 all the way back in 2011. Ten years on, at 2021’s The Game Awards, a sequel was announced via a cinematic trailer and then we finally got our first glimpse at some gameplay during the 2022 Game Awards. Don’t worry though. You don’t have to wait until the 2023 instalment for another update as we have one to bring you today.

Take a look at the brand new gameplay trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine II below.

Yes, Captain Titus is back - this time becoming a Primaris Space Marine - although he will be voiced by a new actor. Mark Strong has been replaced by Clive Standen in the highly-anticipated sequel. You may have seen Standen in Vikings, Taken or Doctor Who. We also know that the game has been created in the Saber Swarm Engine which has clearly yielded some very impressive results.

This time around, you’ll face Tyranid hordes and taking them out looks like a gory task. The sheer number of enemies on screen though is surely to delight fans with the challenge that poses. Unfortunately, we still don’t have a release date but Focus Entertainment have assured fans that the game is due to release in 2023.

You can still pre-order the collector’s edition now if you so wish, which comes with a collector’s box, exclusive cover art, a steelbook, a 64-page ‘Making Of’ book, and a hand-painted Lieutenant Titus resin statue complete with an interchangeable head. I can see this proving to be very popular indeed.
