Warhammer Space Marine 2 - Trailer
So far, we've seen only one trailer for Warhammer 40K: Space Marines 2, which debuted at the 2021 Game Awards. It depicts the Adeptus Astartes fighting against the Tyranids' monstrous threat with no clear winner.
The trailer depicts a group of Imperial Guardsmen losing against a group of Hormagaunts, only to be pushed back by Ultramarine Captain Titus, who jumps into battle to save them. A reasonably simple trailer that we imagine was meant to drum up hype for the game without revealing too much.
Warhammer Space Marine 2 - Leaks & News
There are no sourced or suspected leaks for Warhammer 2, and no gameplay was shown in the initial trailer.
It does appear, however, that a tiny sliver of gameplay was shown on the Warhammer community website during an interview with developers at Saber:
Based on the interview with the developers, we have provided a few excerpts below that describe the focus of Warhammer Space Marine 2. They may also be leaking some crucial information about the upcoming game, but we will leave that up to your perception:
- (Andrey) – “As a member of a combat team, I’d say it’s the combat system… But overall, it’s the scale of everything. Space Marine 2 is much more epic than its predecessor in every single way.”
- (Andrey) “We want to give the player the feeling that they’re a big unstoppable death-dispensing warrior. All the combat systems, animations, and enemy behaviors are created with that clear purpose in mind. The feel when playing is essential. It’s about weight, momentum, and impact.”
- (Aleksandra) “The hardest part is to keep everything faithful to the lore and miniatures while making everything realistic at the same time. Miniatures have quite exaggerated shapes to make them stand out on the table. We couldn’t retrace the forms, so we needed to change them just a little while still staying true to the Warhammer IP.”
So, for now, that is everything you need to know regarding the release of Warhammer Space Marine 2. As mentioned, check back here for more information regarding the game's release date, leaks, and general information on this epic third-person shooter hack-n-slash.
