Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine’s multiplayer feels more like Quake 3 than Call of Duty, according to Relic.

“Because of the power of the Space Marine, the fantasy of the Space Marine, you don’t kill a Space Marine in two bullets, right?” associate producer Otto Ottosson told GameTrailers.

“It takes a little bit. The battles take a little longer, you got shields and then you got health to take down.

“So it ends up feeling a little more old school, it feels a lot more like Quake 3 or Unreal Tournament or something like that. We really feel that’s sort of refreshing in today’s market.”

Space Marine is due on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in early September. See the full interview below.
