Warhammer 40,000: Interview with Space Marine 2 Creative Director Oliver Hollis-Leick PC gamer announced new details of Focus Entertainment and Saber Interactive’s promotion. Possible spoiler to the first part.
Remember that players must take on the role of a familiar from the original Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Space Marine of the Order of Ultramarines – Captain Titus – to destroy the hordes of ruthless Tyranids.
According to Hollis-Lake, the Saber engine allows the team to display “Hundreds, if not thousands” Tyranids without loss of quality: “This war is not just unfolding before you, it stretches to the horizon”.
As for the plot, at the end of the last game, Titus provoked the wrath of the Inquisition for interpreting the Codex Astartes. Hollis Lake doesn’t say what was done to him, but in the trailers, the hero has a symbol of the Inquisition hanging from a chain around his arm.
In the world of Warhammer 40,000, difficult times have come for mankind: the planet Cadia has been destroyed by the forces of Chaos, and the Empire has decided to revive the primarch and leader of the Ultramarines, Roboute Guilliman, author of Codex Astartes.
Chitus must confront his past and try to join a new generation of Space Marines (Primaris) to which he does not belong: “This is the story of a hero whose home turned out to be completely different when he returned.”.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 is expected to be released later this year on PC (Steam), PS5, Xbox Series X and S. As to whether Koop will appear in the game, Hollis Lake didn’t confirm or deny, but Titus alone will definitely not fight.
