Posted on August 3, 2011, Ben Richardson Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Trailer Is a Third-Person Power Armor Spectacular
Class-based carnage is the order of the day in this trailer for Space Marine’s 8v8 multiplayer mode. Players competing online will be able to choose between two factions (Space Marines, Chaos Space Marines) and three different Space Marine variations: the Tactical Marine and Chaos Space Marine are balanced between melee and ranged damage. The Devastator and the Chaos Havoc both wield heavy weapons at the expense of speed. Conversely, the Assault Marine and Chaos Raptor use jetpacks and buffed melee weapons to get in close for the kill.
The clip below shows the exciting potential of these three archetypes, especially the jetpack. It also hints at the game‘s wealth of customization options — you can’t license a game like Warhammer and not allow people to decorate things! Check it out for streaming and download below. We’ve also got the two previous trailers available in a similar fashion.
