Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine Media Looks at Multiplayer Classes
Written By
View author's profile

We've seen and heard little to nothing of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's multiplayer, so this set of screens and new trailer are something of a treat, showing the many classes and customisation combinations for your very own bespoke multiplayer space marine.

There's the Tactical Marine, Chaos Marine, Devastator, Havoc, Assault Marine and Raptor to choose from, then over 1.8 billion combinations to tinker with in the customisation menu before jumping into Space Marine's 16-player online multiplayer modes.

Featuring the same blend of melee and shooty action, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's multiplayer looks pretty robust and we'll be able to find out just how robust when the game launches on September 6th in North America and September 9th in Europe. Check out the new trailer below and seven screens in the gallery.

Games I'm buying for absolutely sure:
1) Gears of War 3
2) Battlefield 3
3) Skyrim

Games I'm definitely going to try and buy/rent if possible:
1) Saints the 3rd
2) Assassin's Creed: Revelations
3) Warhammer 40k Space Marine

I also have Dead Island, Rage, Silent Hill: Downpour, the Metal Gear Solid HD collection and the Halo: CE Anniversary game! SO MANY GAMES, SO LITTLE TIME.

OT: Now that it has a multiplayer, I have more hope and more fear for this game. If it's just a laggy, nasty rush-in-with-chainsaw or snipe-with-lascannon then I'm out, but if it seems really balanced and intense then I might just trip balls! Here's hoping for an excellent 40k game!

@14 You're sadly mistaken if I give a shit about my comments getting thumbs down. Trust me, I'm used to it although I do get a lot of thumbs up on Youtube for some reason. Smarter community perhaps?

I keep seeing Ads on YouTube saying 'Like Gears of War?' or like 'Deus Ex?' and so much more, this game looks good but the games it's being compared to are nothing alike :S

@15 - Wait, wait, you call Youtube a smarter community because they thumb you up for going onto a video which you have no intent to show any interest whatsoever in and say something I'm sure nobody actually gives a fuck about instead? Yeah for sure the smarter community is Youtube isn't it, you must be retarded to think that Youtube is a community, every one here has used Youtube, or does often, fact. Nice logic, retard.

@18 Yeah, people see an 'over-the-shoulder' camera view and they start screaming "OMG ITZ GEARZ". Incompetence at it's finest.

@18 Well not necessary smarter but they don't give you a thumbs down for saying something like "I'll just wait for Gears 3.", meaning I wasn't impressed by the trailer and probably won't be picking up this game. Nothing wrong with that right? Why should I show interest if the trailer didn't appeal to me?

So what happens, 1 or 2 Warhammer fanboys give me a thumbs down and the rest follows without taking a second to use their brain.

Hey! This guy is getting a lot of thumbs down so I might as well do the same to make it look even worse! Ha Ha Ha... -.-'

Sound familiar?

This multiplayer should be an awesome experience, also no snipers! Unless someone tries to camp it up with lascannon.

@M1 Punk - you just keep digging a deeper hole for yourself, with every passing comment don't you.

This game looks so damn sweet. It's a real pity that they moved the release date back from August because I do think it will negatively affect sales. Saying that, I will be getting this game in September along with GoW3, Rise of Nightmares and Gunstringer. Expensive month, but really looking forward to it anyway

Unless it gives you any buffs or extras I culdn't care less about what colour my armour is or if my helmet is badass.

1.8 Billion combinations of cosmetic tat.

The MP reminds me of War for Cybertrons MP.
