Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine: PC Release Confirmed

By Jamie Pert - Jul 27, 2010

THQ has confirmed that its upcoming third person shooter Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine is to come to PC as well as Xbox 360 and PS3. The new shooter, which is being developed by Relic Entertainment, is set for an “early 2011” release, according to THQ.

“The loyal PC audience is incredibly important to us here at Relic,” said Relic general manager John Dowdeswell. “Delivering great content the fans want to play is the key goal in the core games division at THQ so we are pulling out all of the stops to make this the best possible game for PC and console audiences alike,” added a THQ spokesperson.

The game itself casts players as a Space Marine who, through genetic modification and psycho-chemical conditioning, has gained near super-human strength and endurance. Those powers come in handy when the planet your platoon is stationed on is overrun by enemy forces.

Do you think this will be a big hit on PC?

    Aye, what with relic producing so mant RTS' and having such a large dominance of the 40k universe, they'de be making a huge mistake to leave it out of PC

    Yea, the most console players are ppl who prefer light games, not those muddy, brutal WH40K universe 😉

    They really had me scared for a bit. THQ has been making some questionable decisions lately, but deriving the PC fans that have been supporting Relic for years of this beauty is absolutely wrong. I'm pretty sure the majority of the sales will end up being on PC anyway, I don't think there's much of an audience for WH40K on consoles sadly.
