Focus and Saber Entertainment put out a great looking new trailer for Space Marine 2, showing off a good chunk of gameplay and confirming that the game is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC in 2023.

Space Marine 2 sees Captain Titus (voiced by a Clive Standen who’s very excited that he’s being made very tall via the magic of motion capture) heading into battle with the fearsome invasion forces of the Tyranid. As one of the Imperium’s elite Space Marines, you’ll be able to unleash plenty of deadly abilities and use an arsenal of over-the-top weaponry against the chitinous hordes.

Saber will be leaning on their experience with World War Z to ensure that the scale of the battlefields and the Tyranid hordes you face are suitably imposing. The gameplay trailer showed off plenty of gunplay and melee against this fearsome foe.

The Collector’s Edition has also been revealed, which will include:

  • A hand-painted, 21-cm resin statuette of Lieutenant Titus fighting a Tyranid
  • The art and making of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, a 64-page hardcover book
  • A Steelbook
  • The game on the platform of your choice, with the Macragge’s Chosen DLC

While it’s a completely different game studio, we can look back on the original. The 2011 Space Marine was a decent crack at creating a 40K third person shooter with a decent story battling against Orkish hordes. In our review of Space Marine, Dan said:

“Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine has been a pleasant surprise. It provides a good story wrapped in some very enjoyable gameplay mechanics. Whilst it does have a few niggles, there’s no denying that it’s a hoot to play through as you hack, slash and blast your way to the Spire.”
