Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – ‘Chaos’ Reveal Trailer

In this latest trailer for the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, we are introduced to the Chaos Space Marines — the Sith to the Space Marine’s Jedi Order. Except in this case, there are no real good guys — just bad guys, and batshit crazy bad guys.

Watch the trailer here:

There’s no doubt about it — we’ll be fighting both Orks and Chaos Space Marines.

The whole “We stare into the darkness — but the darkness stares back” dialogue seems to imply that Space Marines can be corrupted by the forces of Chaos, which doesn’t strike me as canon with the Warhammer lore — but I’m by no means an expert. At the very least, it’s a theme more commonly associated with Star Wars.

Regardless… Death to the false Emperor!

UPDATE: Apparently that is canon with the Warhammer lore.

No that’s how the chaos space marines came into existence, before there were chaos space marines there was a war master named Horus and he was corrupted into the side of chaos and almost killed the emperor. he was slain before he could, but the chaos space marines are basically followers of the Horus heresy, but under the new war master Abaddon, who was one of Horuses elite generals.

@Theantioch: Thanks for clearing that up! I thought they willingly served the Chaos Gods.
