Players will finally be able to go back to the grim darkness of the far future in Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2. Here’s everything we know about this long-awaited sequel, including when it will come out, how to play it, and what it’s about.
Back in 2011, the first game in the Warhammer 40K Space Marine series put players in a hack-and-slash game from the third-person perspective where they had to fight the endless Ork waaah! Now, after more than a decade, there are hints of a follow-up.
Fans of both Warhammer 40K and the first game can’t wait for it to come out, even though it has a lot to live up to. Let’s look at what we know about the story, when it will come out, and more.

Do We Know When Space Marine 2 Will Come Out?
Even though Space Marine 2 was officially announced at the Game Awards 2021, we didn’t get a release date or even a release year.
Still, we did get a few shots of the game in action, so it’s possible that the game could be finished at some point. Even so, it might not tell us anything about the release date, but it’s a safe bet that it will come out sometime in 2022 or even early 2023 if development is delayed.
One thing we do know is that Space Marine 2 will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Not only that, but it will also be a part of the Xbox Game Pass.
What’s The Story Of Space Marine 2?
After the Black Templars arrested Captain Titus at the end of Space Marine, the trailer doesn’t tell us much about what our second favorite Ultramarine has been up to since then.
From what we can tell from the trailer, a planet has been overrun by Tyranids, and the Imperial Guard has been brutally killed. Seeing Titus fight a Tyranid Warrior with a Bonesword feels like the closest we’ll ever get to reliving the Battle of Macragge on a gaming platform other than tabletop.
Space Marine 2’s main story could have a few more twists and turns, but it seems likely that it will be about something that goes against all odds.
Space Marine 2 Co-Op, Multiplayer
Since the first Space Marine game had multiplayer, Space Marine 2 May too. On the other hand, the first game didn’t have co-op, so that might not happen.
The multiplayer in the first game was kind of like Gears of War, so if you like that series, you might want to check out the Warhammer game.
Space Marine 2 Trailer
So far, this is the only trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marines 2. It was shown for the first time at the Game Awards 2021. In it, a group of Imperial Guardsmen is killed by some nasty-looking Tyranids. Then, three Imperial Guardsmen come to save the day.
At the end of the first episode, Captain Titus of the Ultramarines shows his face as the player character. In the 10 years since the first Space Marine game, visual processing power has gone up by several generations, and Relic has been replaced by Focus Entertainment as the game’s developer.

Since Games Workshop is very careful about keeping things the same, we should be able to expect a familiar way to play. As the last few seconds of the trailer showed, the fast-paced battles that fans loved in the first installment aren’t going anywhere.
