THQ has confirmed plans to release Warhammer 40K: Space Marine in August, narrowing down the release from a previously vague 'summer'.
Space Marine takes a break from the usual top-down RTS shenanigans the series is known for, instead taking the form of a third-person action shooter not unlike Gears of War.
Today also saw the revelation of a new race to appear in Space Marine - the 'Chaos' race. Speaking exclusively to CVG, Space Marine game director Raphael van Lierop described the Chaos as a far more "devious" enemy.
""With Chaos we're able to add a new twist to the game for players, giving them an enemy that is much more devious, much more dangerous in small numbers and one that is going to force the player to be think," he said.
