Getting in before the E3 rush, THQ have officially announced Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, in the works at Relic Entertainment [Company of Heroes, Dawn of War] for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Interestingly, Space Marine is described as an action RPG, a departure from Relic's recent strategy focus.
Space Marine is an Action-RPG built from the ground up for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 systems, and will allow gamers to take control of individual units and fight in epic battles across the Warhammer 40,000 universe," said Jonathan Dowdeswell, general manager, Relic Entertainment. "Relic has a deep understanding of the license based on our previous projects with Games Workshop, and our goal is to ensure Space Marine delivers the most intimate and brutal Warhammer 40,000 experience to date.
