The trailer mostly showcased the fast-paced action, as well as the huge buildings Captain Titus will fight aliens in. It’s available to wishlist on Steam right now. Space Marine 2 was actually first announced at The Game Awards in 2021, but without release year attached at the time.
Much of the gameplay seems very similar to the original Space Marine–which means players can expect both melee and shooter action, and slashing through big waves of alien hordes. Saber Interactive is more recently known for World War Z, a co-op zombie shooter.
Space Marine was rated a 7/10 in GameSpot’s Space Marine review. Reviewer Kevin VanOrd praised the game for its fun combination of melee and shooter action, but criticized its dull narrative and roster of characters.
Space Marine 2 will release in 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
