THQ’s third-person shooter Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine would be pretty boring if you were only fighting the Ork forces. Developer Relic Entertainment mixing things up by introducing the forces of Chaos, the original mixer-uppers.
Due out in August for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a far cry from the Warhammer strategy titles that have come before. This is an action game, with players taking on the role of Space Marine Captain Titus as he attempts to foil an Ork invasion from the Imperial Forge World.
While the savage, animalistic Orks make for fine cannon fodder, Captain Titus is going to need something a little more meatier to provide the challenge a growing Space Marine needs. That’s where the forces of Chaos come in. Between the Renegade Militia, Tainted Psykers, Bloodletter Daemons, and other Chaos units joining the fray, lack of challenge should be Titus’ last worry.
