First trailer was done by THQ australia as a test piece for some new developers. If they did it good enough it was to be made into a proper game. They didn't. Then A thing with GW and Relic came about again and THQ gave the idea(licenses etc) to Relic and they made the newer video...

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

This game looks freaking awesome and I've been waiting for a game like this to come out for a while now. I'm pretty excited about it

The game is an action RPG for the 360 & PS3. And it looks like the emphasis is on action. There were several scenes featuring dozens of enemies on-screen at once, with small squads of Space Marines (you of course being one of them) fighting them off with a combination of ranged and melee attacks.

I saw Marine layouts being customised (you can add stuff like jetpacks), finishing moves performed as part of combos, and special attacks that could wipe out 10-15 Orks at a time.

While the footage only showed Space Marines and Orks going at it, and were the only races in the game confirmed to us by Relic, a larger battle montage towards the end of the clip showed glimpses of Tyranids, so don't be surprised to see them in the final game too.

Oh, and as well as Tyranids, there was also a Titan lumbering around blowing stuff up. Which should excite the 40K fanboys in the house.

Two things really stood out to me by the time we were done: one being the amount of action on display, and the other the amount of pomp and ceremony the license was being treated to. While the Dawn of War games could only briefly go for cinematic thrills in their intro sequences, this game looks packed with moments of real gravitas, epic scores and brooding cinematics punctuating the action and helping bring a little of the universe's storied colour and character to the game.

While there's still lingering doubts as to how the combat will actually feel - after all, it's not like Relic are that experiences in the Action/RPG field - from what I saw today, the game definitely looks on track to deliver a Warhammer 40K title that shows humanity's endless war from a more intimate perspective than strategy games can manage.

As long as I can heft a Master-crafted bolter simply to mow down hundreds of screaming enemies I'll be happy. This looks like one of those games I will play when I feel particularly bloodthirsty and just want to kill hordes and hordes of things.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...
