Chaotic Co-Op: Space Marine

By Adam Smith on November 3rd, 2011.

Things I have noticed - Chaos is often purple

Space Marine’s recently added co-op horde mode already has additional content on the way. Latin-Dalek-impersonating Exterminatus mode originally added two scenarios for free, but THQ are preparing to release another chunk of content called Chaos Unleashed. Keeping Chaos on a leash is like keeping a cat on a leash so this is a sensible move but what does it add to the game? For the price of “800 Microsoft Points or equivalent”, them being the world’s major currency apparently, Chaos Unleashed let’s you fight swarms of Orks and Imperial Guard as a ruddy great Chaos Marine.

Co-BIFF: Space Marine Adds Free Co-Op Mode

By John Walker on October 25th, 2011.

It's good to see giant space marines cooperating for once.

THQ have just announced (instead of sending me the email they promised) that Space Marine has received an update adding a co-op mode. Called Exterminatus, because there wasn’t a sillier word, if you load Steam you should find it updates automagically with the new option. (And you can laugh at 360 players, who don’t get this yet.)

Seal The Deal: Space Marine Pre-Order Stuff

By Quintin Smith on May 27th, 2011.

Is that a wedding invitation in the lower right? I DO TAKE YOU MRS SPACE MARINE TO BE MY WIFE / YOU MAY NOW WRESTLE THE BRIDE

You want to play Space Marine. I want to play Space Marine. We all want to play Space Marine.

But what if you want to do more than play Space Marine? What if you want to pre-order it for trinkets and exclusive crumbs of content? Relic has you covered. They’re even giving away hardware, for goodness sake. Thanks to RPS reader Mondo Mau for sending this in. Details after the jump.

Grimdark Diary: Relic Talk Space Marine

By Jim Rossignol on April 7th, 2011.

Those feisty fellows at went and scooped a Space Marine diary from Relic, and – thanks to the internet’s smelly hippie ethos of sharing – you can see the first instalment below. There is grimdark, there are squigs, there are chainswords, there is compellingly ludicrous evisceration, there is epic futuristic gothic architecture, and – ultimately – I would say there is awesome. Go watch.

And then read Quintin’s impressions from playing the game.

A Date With A Space Marine

By Alec Meer on March 24th, 2011.

Nobody ever thinks about the friends and family of a Madboy

Do Space Marines go on dates? “You have the most gorgeous geneseed.” “If I said you have a beautiful flamer, would you let me burn the heretic with it?” “In the grim darkness of the 41st millennium there is only war, and your eyes.”

Anyway! Relic’s upcoming orkshooter Space Marine has finally been granted something like a release date. It’s been on the horizon for about 40,000 years already, but now all of a sudden it’s turning up in August. This August, that is. So just five months until the Ultramarine’s Captain Titus sticks his Power Fist into the maw of various non-human scum (which were earlier this week confirmed to include the forces of Chaos). 2011 sure is a busy year for expensive-looking video games.

Space Marine trailer (albeit an old one) below to aid with your remembrance.

Khorney Dialogue: Space Marine Does Chaos

By Alec Meer on March 22nd, 2011.

Die by the tongue. Sorry, sword.

The good news about Relic’s upcoming Warhammer 40,000 manshoot keeps on getting gooder. First, THQ reversed their decision to not release it on PC. Then Quinns came away from an early preview with a much bigger spring in his step than we expected. Now we hear that it won’t, as had previously been hinted, be merely a matter of bashing/stabbing/boltering Orks until they’re all dead. The Space Marines’ gnarly arch-nemeseseseses Chaos will be showing up too. Nicely-rendered blood for the blood god!

Whoosh! Bam! Space Marine Preview

By Quintin Smith on August 13th, 2010.

About five minutes into my demonstration of Relic’s Space Marine I realise what I’m looking at is a 3rd person shooter that draws heavily from Gears of War, so I ask an obvious question. “Is there some kind of cover system?” Relic man grins. “Actually, the team has an internal line about that. We say, ‘Cover is for Pussies.'”

I don’t take my eyes off the screen, but my ears do a double take. “We do have this though,” says Relic man. With the press of a button he sends Ultramarine Captain Titus running straight through a low wall of cover like a wrecking ball, and begins hacking apart the orks on the other side with his chainsword. “Oh,” I hear myself say, mesmerised. “Right!”

Armoured Hugs: Space Marine On PC

By Alec Meer on July 26th, 2010.

only war, and pixel shaders

“The loyal PC audience is incredibly important to us here at Relic,” says a guy. Or, to put it in other, MORE EXCITING words: the Warhammer 40,000 third-person action game Space Marine is coming to PC, despite formerly being pitched as console only. Oh yay! Oh yay!

And the screenshots? The screenshots look great.

Space Marine On PC, Oh Please Oh Please

By Alec Meer on October 28th, 2009.

Online petitions! I love the way they don’t ever change anything. But still, let’s give it a shot. There’s an online effort to convince THQ/Relic to release their upcoming Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine shooter on PC as well as on console. It makes sense, given I’d guesstimate there’s a bit more commonality between PC gamers and Games Workshop players than between console gamers and the latter, but then that is an entirely baseless sweeping generalisation.

And, as it turns out, Relic aren’t dismissing the idea of a PC version out of hand.
