Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team listed by ratings board

Tuesday, 31st May 2011 04:07 GMT By Brenna Hillier

The reliably spoilerific Australian Classifications Board has revealed an unannounced Warhammer 40,000 title.

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, which was classified M15 on May 27, is listed as a multiplatform game from THQ Digital Studios UK.

As Joystiq points out, in the Warhammer 40,000 canon, a kill-team is a specialised unit of space marines.

Given the developer and suggestive title, we could be looking at a tie-in promotional game for the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, much like Red Faction: Battlegrounds.

Space Marine has not yet been rated, and is due for release on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in September.

    I would imagine that it’ll be the spiritual sequel to Squad Command (PSP & DS)

    Very interesting. Excited to see it!

    Relic had said that they’d be announcing some new stuff this Summer, so… Sweet!

    Wasn’t Kill Team a mod for Dawn of War 2? If so this is going to be The Last Standalone for consoles . Good news.

    Then again, it could be an add on DLC survival mode for Space Marine, similar to The Last Stand in Dawn of War 2.
    They could be doing it as a separate deal, about a month ago they made The Last Stand available separately from Dawn of War 2 for those who don’t want the full game.
    Alternatively, they could just have it as a small promotional downloadable game like they have done with Red Faction.

    Since the whole “promotional game” idea is a big fail (RF: Battlegrounds got mostly negative reviews) I hope this is a sequel to Squad Command.

    Since now I also have a PSP I’m actually looking for Squad Command myself, but it seems like nobody in Italy has it anymore, and the only UK retailer stocking it in “PSP Essentials” format is Play, but it’s listed at 12,45 euros, and that’s not the right price because all Essentials must cost 9,99 euros, not 12,45.

    Red Faction: Battlegrounds wasn’t as bad as reviews claimed. It should have been cheaper but was kinda fun.
