THQ has put out some screens and a video for Relic’s Warhammer action-shooter, Space Marine.

In it, players “don the armor of one of the emperor’s chosen in a battle for the very survival of humanity”.

Awesome.

It’s a third-person affair set in space containing a mix of melee and ranged combat, and is slated for Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2012.

More of the game will be shown at gamescom in August.

    Between this and the MMO, THQ are making great use of the license, which has never been done proper justice before. Yes, their Dawn of War games are also great, but there’s so much more awesomeness to the property than can be done justice with just RTS games alone. Good times!

    I just can’t understand why the game is not also on the PC?! It is 40k for christ sake. It will also sell on the PC and is Relic, we respect them. I know that the game will come to the PC like Darksiders but it is stupid for me.

    For those who don’t speak suit, it’s worth mentioning that THQ starts their fiscal years on April 1st, so it’s entirely probable that the games will hit in 2011.

    Certainly between April 1st 2011 (start of FY 2012) and April 1st 2012 (start of FY 2013)

    That obviously still contains more of 2011 than of 2012, so you might want to add that to your post.

    gekidami is a true essence of a loki ;)

    I still think it will be ported to PC in some way. Like with Darksiders. It’s too early to judge. There are still a lot of time till 2012.
