Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 unveils hordes of Tyranid enemies and chaos in new trailer

Last year, an announcement was made regarding the preparation of a sequel to 2011 shooter Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, and it seems that developer Saber Interactive is working hard to live up to the game’s classic reputation. The studio has clearly reused some techniques from its World War Z game, as Space Marine 2 features hordes of Tyranid enemies quite intimidating. At the Warhammer Skulls gaming showcase, we got another glimpse of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2, and the game continues to impress.

A trailer and a collector’s edition

We witness swarms of increasingly menacing villains, intense melee action and, of course, gallons of alien blood spilling. Watch the trailer below.

A trailer that promises an intense experience! Of course, performance will be essential for this game, as it won’t be fun to kill hundreds and thousands of enemies if the game suffers from slowdowns. That said, the games developed by Saber are generally up to the task technically, and we hope that Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 will be no exception. If you haven’t been following the game’s news, here’s a brief official description…

Embody the superhuman abilities and brutality of a Space Marine, the Emperor’s greatest warrior. Unleash deadly abilities and an arsenal of devastating weapons to eradicate the relentless Tyranid horde. Face the horrors of the galaxy in epic battles on distant planets. Uncover dark secrets and push back the eternal night to prove your ultimate loyalty to mankind.

If you’re willing to shell out $250, the Collector’s Edition of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 is available for pre-order now. Here’s a reminder of its contents:
