Check out our first look preview for Warhammer: 40,000 Space Marine. The series that boasts its legacy of being the "original" space marine IP as a table-top game is heading to the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC this August.

"I guided him throughout settings and art styles that should be familiar to any Warhammer 40K follower. The metallic twist given to the Roman Gothic-inspired architecture would be worth admiring if everything weren’t so trashed from countless wars. The overall mission for Titus is a standard issue “hold the line” directive, one that might very well last the entire span of this estimated eight to 10 hour campaign. Of course within each chapter are a series of more specific objectives ranging from activating switches to meeting up with misplaced platoons. The one mission type that really brings out the meat of the combat was when I had to stand my ground against waves of enemies. Think Halo’s Firefight mode with a plot."
