Has anyone found out what the two Chapters/Legions from each side are?

From the Screen Shots, Flam, I'd say that the Ultramarines are one of the Chapters and Word Bearers are one of the Legions, but I don't know what the second of either is.

I've got a release date. American version out October 4th, according to Play Asia. Didn't see anything for the rest of the world, though.

it looks like an updated version of chaos gate to me in some ways, except not as good of course

Yeah, that's what I thought when I saw it. But hey... Chaos Gate was badass, so if it's even a little like that, it'll be worth having. It also looks vaguely like XCOM... I guess in that individual by individual sort of format.

The singleplayer allows you to play as the Ultramarines vs the Word Bearers. Not a bad storyline and it is quite a bit of fun once you get playing. Gets hard very quickly though.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
