Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine 2 received a brand new campaign trailer at E3 2023. The campaign looks to be chocked full of everything that made the original Space Marine so memorable. 

In the trailer, Titus and his squad cut through swathes of monstrous Tyranids with their brutal weaponry. We're also treated to a look at some of the game's gorgeously grim environments. The war-torn battlefields of the 41st Millennium have never looked so good.

The trailer also shows off the campaign's co-op mode, where up to three players can fight alongside one another. Should the experience prove meaty enough, Space Marine 2 could find itself joining our list of the best co-op games

2023 is a great year for Warhammer 40,000 fans. In addition to Space Marine 2's impending release, RPG fans will be able to enjoy Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader, wherein players will be able to step into the shoes of one of the settings' daring space privateers

We've also received some welcome updates to deeply satisfying co-op shooter Warhammer 40,000 Darktide.

Space Marine 2 places a strong emphasis on its central story, giving us a ground-view look at the grim darkness of the far future. The trailer shows Titus and co. fighting alongside imperial forces as part of a struggle against an alien invasion. 

The original Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine was released way back in 2011. A cult classic, the title was well-received by fans, but didn't receive sufficient momentum to warrant an immediate sequel. 

Fortunately for fans of third-person shooters, grimdark supersoldiers and oversized weapons, Space Marine is no longer stuck in limbo and will be coming to our screens soon. Unfortunately, however, renowned voice actor Mark Strong will not be reprising his role. However, judging from the trailer, the quality of the voice acting is more than sufficient to convey the brutal feeling of the setting.

Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine 2 is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC sometime this year.
