Although the single player portion of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine has already been put on display several times (via several trailers) over the past couple of months, the multiplayer component has been shrouded in a bit more secrecy up until now. Scroll to the bottom of this page to watch the very first official multiplayer trailer. The most interesting news contained within it? It’s confirmed to be supporting 16 players.
And in case you hadn’t noticed, we’ve gone a bit Space Marine mad this month, and in addition to our two Warhammer-themed competitions – win £500 in zavvi vouchers here, and win a rare, official replica model Chainsword here – you can also earn yourself some free DLC when you pre-order the game at zavvi.com. That DLC consists of a unique unlockable code for the ‘Golden Relic Chainsword’, an iconic weapon borne from the Warhammer 40,00 universe. The essential melee weapon for any budding Space Marine, it features motorised biting teeth which are capable of slicing through bulkheads, thick armour, as well as flesh and bone. Obviously.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is due for release on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on Friday, September 9th 2011.
