What is the release date of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2? Here are the latest news and updates regarding the sequel.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine is one of the most appreciated 40K games out there. The fans of the title and the Warhammer universe have been waiting for a sequel for more than 10 years. Even though it is very surprising, a sequel was announced back in December 2021 at The Game Awards. Now the fans are curious about the release date of the long-awaited third-person shooter.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 Release Date
As of this writing, we do not have any official information on the release date. Though we will probably see some new videos between the dates June 1st and June 8th, 2022. With Warhammer Skulls events taking place, it is a great time to be a fan of the 40K universe.
The latest video shared on IGN gives us a glimpse of the upcoming game. It also includes an exciting commentary from the developers. You can watch the 2-minute-long video below.
The team behind the sequel is Saber Interactive. And it seems like they are just as passionate about the Warhammer 40K universe as we are. Oliver Hollis-Leick, the Creative Director at Saber Interactive stated that they wanted to come up with a game that embodies the galactic warfare in the 40K.
Based on their comments in the video, they are aware of the love and admiration for this fictional universe. The way 40K depicts the distant future of humanity is just mesmerizing even though it is devoid of hope and filled with horrifying tales of brutal clashes.
Space Marine 2 will bring back Titus
While there are a ton of Warhammer 40K games out there, none of them offered a similar experience to Space Marine. The games based on the 40K universe are usually strategy titles that focus on battles on bigger scales. But Space Marine offers the chance to become a Space Marine and enter close combat against the enemies of Mankind. Taking the role of a biologically-engineered supersoldier and using various equipment like Heavy Bolters, Chainswords, and Jump Packs is truly amazing.
The 2011 action TPS invited players to breathe life into Lieutenant Titus. As one of the most experienced Space Marines, his mission was to fight against the Ork invasion and also the forces of Chaos. The title also introduced a multiplayer mode where players participated in clashes between Loyalist and Chaos Space Marine chapters.
That’s why fans of the game have been waiting for a sequel all these years. Thanks to the game’s brilliant depiction of its protagonist, we are also quite excited to see Titus again. The Space Marines in the first game were great reflections of the ones we have seen in the novels and comics. It seems like the second game will follow the same path and stay loyal to the narrative we have witnessed throughout the Warhammer 40K works.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 will land on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Watch the trailer video shared at The Game Awards.
