Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 Shows Off The Different Way Gameplay Will Flow


Get a bit more of the gameplay for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 as we see how this version of Warhammer will keep the IP going

I am sure you all want to see some new gameplay for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 and we have that today with a bit more. A bit more with the fact that Saber Interactive is giving us a fun breakdown and overview of what we can expect in the story, campaign, co-op play, and then versus play out there. All to make sure we are ready to see what this Warhammer title is going to add to the IP when it hits the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on September 9th. So, get ready to see a whole lot of gameplay and think about pre-ordering the title if you have not done that already by this point. Even if I am sure that most have made that choice by this point already.

The story of this one will take place shortly after the events of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine and still house a lot of the same style of gameplay. We will be able to dive in with two other friends to take our trio through the events of the game if you so wish to. All of the fun guns, chain-swords, and armor we can imagine while also planning our next stages of attack in the universe. If that is not your jam, though, you can dive into a different Co-Op gameplay where you will just be doing that while as one of six classes and unlocking more of the cosmetics you might want. If you do not want to just jump to the six versus six multiplayer mode that seems to have all of the same fun as the rest of the game.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 — Gameplay Overview

Focus Entertainment and Saber Interactive premiered a new gameplay overview trailer for their hotly-anticipated third-person action game Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2. Narrated by Creative Director Oliver Hollis-Leick, this six-minute video dives deeper into Space Marine 2’s main story campaign, multiplayer modes, and progression mechanics. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 releases on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on September 9.

Continue the story of legendary Ultramarine Lieutenant Demetrian Titus a hundred years after the events of Space Marine and fight the endless Tyranid swarms to defend the Imperium. Unleash Titus’ superhuman skill and wide-ranging arsenal solo, or with up to two friends playing as Titus’ battle-brothers Chairon and Gadriel in seamless drop-in/drop-out co-op.

Battle as one of six playable classes (Tactical, Assault, Vanguard, Bulwark, Sniper, and Heavy) in “Operations” (PvE) and “Eternal War” (PvP) modes, and make them your own with Space Marine 2’s deep customization system for armor and weapons.

In “Operations” mode, use Armoury Data and experience earned on the battlefield to upgrade each class with up to 25 perks to shape your playstyle. Armoury Data will also let you level up your weapons with each new mission to unlock more powerful variants and unique cosmetics. The armor and weapon cosmetics earned in “Operations” will even be available for your “Eternal War” matches, though your perks and weapon upgrades will remain exclusive to the PvE experience for balancing purposes.

Following the game’s launch on September 9, Space Marine 2 will add new “Operations” missions, PvP maps, enemies, and weapons to fight them with through regular free content updates for all players. Additional cosmetics and Chapter heraldry will be released as part of the Season Pass, with no microtransactions or in-game cash shop involving premium currency.

Heed the call of battle when Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 launches Sept. 9, 2024, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Will you be going into this Warhammer title solo or will you be looking to add in as many as you can out there? Will the co-op options in the game be the bigger driving force or will it still devolve into the multiplayer being the bigger draw out there?
