(also known as WH40k: Space Marine) is an upcoming third-person action video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ. It is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows.
Space Marine does not feature a cover system. As a Space Marine, you are given enhanced regenerative abilities and an Iron Halo shield. When health gets low, performing sync kills can allow Titus to get a portion of his health back. You are accompanied by Sidonus and Leandros for most of the missions, though in some instances you will have to go on solo missions. The game features a fury system that, when filled up, allows you to either slow time for aiming or to unleash a devastating melee attack.
Your starting weapons include a Chainsword, a Bolt Pistol and a Bolter, though the player can acquire other weapons ranging from Plasma Guns and Lascannons to mighty Thunder Hammers. The game includes a new weapon not featured in the actual table-top game known as the Vengeance Launcher, which can shoot mines.
The main antagonists the player must fight are the Orks and the Forces of Chaos. The Orks are an alien race whose sheer numbers and brutish warriors make a devastating opponent. The Forces of Chaos on the otherhand are a far more serious threat who can literally extinguish the life of whole star systems by summoning nearly limitless amounts of horrors that flourish in a parallel universe known as The Warp. Portals conjured by the Traitor Legions (renegade Space Marines) allow the fiends to cross over into real-space. They are likely the biggest threat the universe must face.
Whilst Co-Op and Multiplayer have been confirmed, Relic has so far been unclear on the details.
