We have the details for the recently announced Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Demo that is heading our way.
First a little more about the game:
About Space Marine
When wave after wave of savage ORKS descend upon the Forge World GRAIA, it is up to humanity’s greatest warriors to win the planet back.
They are SPACE MARINES, genetically modified, encased in hallowed armor, the equivalent of one hundred lesser men. They live only to defend the Imperium, and to slay its enemies in a war that never ends. CAPTAIN TITUS, along with his comrades LEANDROS and SIDONUS, lead a detachment of these Space Marines onto the Forge World. There, they quickly discover that the fight against the Orks is not all that requires their attention. An Imperial Inquisitor named DROGAN needs help securing an experimental POWER SOURCE, before the Orks do so themselves.
Now for information about the demo, read all the way through, as you will see that if you are a member of the Space Marine ‘Honour Guard’ community, you will be able to play the demo early on August 22, a whole 24 hours before the Xbox 360 and PC version of the demo! Wait, you are not part of the Honour Guard?! No problem, here is more information on how to sign up to get the demo early. Remember, for the Xbox and PC players you will be able to get into the action on August 23rd, while PlayStation 3 players will have to wait until August 24th.
Here is some more information about the demo:
The Space Marine demo features two very different areas of the game. The first pits the player against an Ork horde outside the gates of a munitions factory. Armed with six devastating weapons, including the iconic bolter and lethal chainsword, the player will get to experience Space Marine’s seamless mix of melee and ranged combat first hand as they take on the rampaging invaders. The second area gives players a taste of the exhilarating Jump Pack sequences where the game’s hero—Captain Titus—takes to the skies to rain death from above.
So mark your calendars, Warhammer fans, and for those that don’t really know much about the game, or are still on the fence about the game, download the demo and I promise you will no longer be on the fence with this one, as it is a great game, and one that I can’t wait for.
