First Screens Of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine

It's been nine months since THQ officially announce the Warhammer 40K action RPG Space Marine, and we're finally getting the first screenshots for the game. Are they worth the wait?

Announced in May of last year and shown in footage form at E3 a month later, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine seems to be a title that THQ and developer Relic are taking their own sweet time on. As evidence to that, these are the first two screenshots that have surfaced for the action RPG.

I'd say that if the game's visuals are this gorgeous, Relic can take as much time as they need to make sure the game plays as good as it looks.


    Good to see the 40K IP getting some good games lately. After Dawn of War 2 turned out to be a damn fine game, I'm really looking forward to this.

    ... i just got a little bit of a love drip in the front of my pants....

    someone - hold me...

    jizz in my pants...

    i hope it's going to be releasesd on xbox as well

    not 'real' screens.

      That's right. These are posed, framed, and heavily touched up in photoshop. Definite marketing material.

    They're screenshots in the same way that books are edible.

    Freaking marketing.

    But at least it confirms that...

    a) You're playing as one of the most loved/hated Chapters in 40k story...

    b) You're not just fighting Chaos. God bless the Orks.

    So, Ultramarines, huh? Bit of a shame; I'm a major Blood Angels fan, myself, but I can see why they chose Ultramarines. I hope there's interactions with other Chapters though.
    I wonder what Traitor Legion will be the enemy; probably Word Bearers?

    I just wonder if you will be able to take it online and have your own custom army.
