We did not get a take a look at any new Space Marine 2 gameplay throughout at the moment’s Warhammer Skulls showcase. We did get a brand new trailer, nevertheless, that includes some behind-the-scenes footage of growth at Saber Interactive, and a handful of builders speaking about their targets and aspirations for the sequel that is a decade within the making.

The cinematics that seem within the showcase are drawn from the announcement trailer revealed ultimately yr’s Game Awards, so sadly there’s nothing new to see there. Fans will little question be a minimum of a little bit relieved that Saber Interactive, which has taken over the collection from unique developer Relic, appears totally dedicated to sustaining the Space Marine mythos.

“These guys are two and a half meters tall, they’re probably about 500 pounds before you even put the armor on top of them,” actor Clive Standen, who’s changing Mark Strong within the position of Captain Titus (who is outwardly now a lieutenant), stated within the video. “And their armor is ginormous.”

“Most human beings in this world will never see a space marine,” artistic director Oliver Hollis-Leick stated. “They’re the stuff of legends. They’re known as the angels of death. His angels. When one appears on the battlefield, it’s like seeing an angel of God.”

You would possibly assume that is a bit excessive, however that is principally Warhammer 40,000 in a nutshell. Restrained (and even rational), it isn’t. I imply, simply take a look at these guys.

(Also, technically, Titus is a member of the Ultramarines chapter. The Death Angels are a complete totally different bunch.)

Unfortunately, the trailer didn’t embrace any trace as to a launch date: That continues to be TBA.
