THQ have just officially announced Space Marine, a Warhammer 40K Action RPG. No word yet on price, release date or platforms.
A few things to note: while the original material suggested that “THQ Australia” were working on the game, the official announcement says that Dawn of War and Company of Heroes developers Relic are behind it. Strange. Also, while the original title was clearly an action game, this one has really upped the number of on-screen enemies (as you can see in the clip below), in line with its apparent shift in genre from brawler to action-RPG.
Hopefully, it comes out before Diablo 3 =)
