Space Marine 2 promises to pit us against ‘thousands of tyranids’


Saying we were a bit excited when it was announced that after a decade of waiting, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine was getting a sequel would be an understatement. Developed by Relic Entertainment and released in 2011, the original Space Marine was both an adrenaline-pumping action game and an evocative depiction of a 40K Forge World. We were eager to line up Saber Interactive, the studio developing Space Marine 2, for an interview during this year’s PC Gaming Show (opens in new tab).

Tim Willits, Saber’s chief creative officer, is a veteran developer with credits going back to id Software’s 1990s heyday, having designed levels for Ultimate Doom and worked on games like Hexen and Quake. Willits brought the historical perspective, saying, “I bet many people do not know that the original DoomGuy was actually a space marine inspired by an even older space marine, which is the Warhammer 40,000 space marine.”
