A YouTuber named prdalien0 uploaded a video of them showing off the unreleased artbook of Space Marine 2 and the contents within. However, this video was taken down due to a copyright claim by publisher Focus Entertainment (sad).

A Reddit post says the artbook showcased the classes players can play as and that PVP will have Space Marines shooting their bolters at other Marines (just like the first game), along with banner and clan customization. There will also be a base area where upgrades can be applied to your character and where you will select which missions you go on. Levels, bosses, and enemies were also shown, including Tyranids and the heretical Chaos Marines, as well as the weapons, vehicles, and other interactable objects present in levels.

What is Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2?

The Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 is part of the Warhammer 40K universe (and by the Emperor, it is a BIG universe). It’s a sequel to the first game that was dropped back in 2011, which is also a third-person action game where you kill Greenskins (orks) and Chaos Marines by way of bolters (guns) and chainswords.

The main character of the first game, Ultramarine Captain Titus, is coming back for the sequel. In the first game, Titus was accused of heresy by another Space Marine, Leandros, because of the former being resistant to Chaos, a type of energy that can corrupt someone and turn them away from the Emperor of Mankind. In the sequel, he’s still part of the Ultramarines but given the events of the first game, people aren’t too fond of the guy.

Space Marine 2 will have Titus, now a lieutenant, be more powerful since he has become a Primaris Space Marine, allowing him to be swifter, stronger, and taller than a normal Space Marine. Along for the ride are two more Ultramarines, Brother Chairon and Brother-Sergeant Gadriel, who can be controlled by two players in co-op (if you have friends, that is).

Just like the first game, Titus and co. will be battling Chaos Marines and the Tyranids, another 40K alien species that Space Marines hate and want to exterminate, once again by way of bolters and chainswords. You can start slaying the Tyranid Swarm and the Chaos Marine Legions on September 9 this year, with developer Saber Interactive putting the game on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
