Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 - Official Extended Gameplay Trailer


ETA Releases on 11/07/2023.

Black Rock/Larry Finkenstein has a 22% stake in Games Workshop, & predictably, there's news afoot that they're "forcing behaviors" (to quote the Fink) in the company, by insisting on lore content being retconned to be less toxically masculine, & the concern is that it might impact the game's development.

Oh yeah. I'm thinking that'll be splitting time with Final Fantasy: Rebirth for me. I know my kid and I are pretty excited for it.

With all the games and cell phone use, it is amazing any work gets done.

I am looking forward to the game.  I loved the original game. This one looks like it will be more the same with better graphics and new enemies.

This is like WH nirvana for me, especially if it has a team survival/horde mode. I've wanted to fight tyranids since the 1st game. Also looks like chaos SM forces may be back again.

I hope they don't come out at the same time...FF is a no brainer for me.

That game looks insane. I bought the first one a while back but have yet to play it. The tyranids interest me way more than orks though.

Everything I see says winter 2023 for SM2. Steam says 2023 and the official page says this winter.

It looks good, I'll probably buy it.

Its looks like a blend of Warhammer 40k Spacehulk Deathwing and Space Marine. Spacehulk as good, it could have been great with some gameplay changes, the "horde rush" should have been used less and it should have had a better story.

It looked like it had great atmosphere, but was a bugfest at release. Apparently, they've since remedied that, but from every review & gameplay video I've seen, it looks very repetitive & seems grindy over time. The concept is great, but I wish there was more depth & variety there.

Going to pick it up.


And definitely play Boltgun if you like that genre. Don't forget to insult the heretics as you slay them.

Hope it's good. I'll wait for reviews because I have zero faith in game developers.

I have the enhanced edition, the part in bold is true unfortunately. Its basically "get a horde rush every 200' or 60 seconds, whichever comes first". The game is visually amazing but you cant really enjoy all of the work that went into it as its a horde all the time. If they took the game and visuals and made it a non-zombie rush mechanic it would be awesome.

Friend me on Steam (MASTERBLASTER). I play it weekly. Best experience if you "farm" level up & get access to perks (I can show you how to do this).

Exterminatus (Horde) mode is fun, though the dev choice to buff the shooter classes using shoot-at-you-backwards-&-hit-you-from-across-the-map accuracy (No joke on highest difficulty) gets annoying sometimes. Take those guys out ASAP. But it's fun when you get with a good group that knows their stuff. Lasecannons are awesome.

So the 11/7 release date was a bogus report. Looks like it won't make it until next year. I did find this report detailing the gameplay mechanics & controls, though.

It must really be garbage if they had to push back a year.

Devs need to stop announcing release dates if they can never stick to it. Fucking dumb.

Actually, all the early "beta" reviewers have praised it, but they all say it needs polishing, specifically to address framerate dips when things get busy.

Framerate dips during the reveal looked rough. Glad they have extra time to improve it before release.

Yeah, I was going to post. Pretty sure 10 months is for more than "polish". Probably more story content &/or MP,  which is good, but the wait...

Guess I'll be waiting a bit longer before I build a new MRR (Master Race Rig).

I just checked discussions on Steam concerning the woke retconning of 40K & noticed the release date looks to have been pushed further back from 9/7 to 12/7. Must need the extra time to shoehorn in the woke. Of course, that could also be done with patch updates.

I think I'm going to withhold buying & wait to see what happens, as I'm not feeling all that psyched about it anymore.

retconned female custodes

amazon wanted female space marines so maybe they slowed the game thinking it was coming down

I have friends that are mega 40k fans but I'm not really one. I have a female Psycher in Darktide that I like though.
