Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Developer Walkthrough

[Update] Hey guys, glad you have been enjoying the video but I was contacted by THQ this morning and unfortunately had to pull it down 🙁


Okay, did I miss a game announcement or something? Anyone else ever heard of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine? Apparently it’s an upcoming third-person action game THQ has in the works in addition to Dawn of War II and the Warhammer 40K MMO. I’ve searched around and haven’t been able to find one scrap of info or even a site listing it in development, but this here developer walkthrough THQ released from the recent Leipzig Games Convention clearly shows that it exists. The walkthrough shows a good 9+ minutes of very early gameplay footage running on an Xbox 360 (I presume it’s also coming to PS3 and maybe PC, but again, I haven’t been able to find any game info). It’s obviously rough around the edges given its immature state, but the concepts on display look like they could be pretty sweet once all assets are in place and the game is polished up.
