Warhammer 40K Space Marine shown in massive movie demo

Friday, 5th September 2008 08:29 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Just a hunch, but we’re guessing this wasn’t supposed to be released. The THQ Australia Warhammer 40K game – now confirmed as Warhammer 40K Space Marine – has been shown off overnight in a ten-minute gameplay video, complete with developer commentary.

Watch the entire thing on Tiscali Games. There was a GameTrailers version of this doing the rounds in the past few hours, but it looks as though it’s been pulled.

The game looks very cool, pitching the player in a third-person combat environment as, obviously, a Space Marine. Ranged combat looks to be limited to pistols, with emphasis placed on sword fighting and finishing moves.

Watch it. Quick, before THQ has a fanny.

    Hmm, potential…

    I’ve always thought there was a lot of good source material in Warhammer 40,000 for videogames which hasn’t been exploited, outside of some rather dry looking RTS escapades.

    Never into the real thing though. Too much lead and fiddly painting.
