The wait is almost over for fans of brutal action in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium. Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 is set to charge onto the scene this September! Here’s a quick rundown on everything you need to know to prepare for battle.

Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 Release Date & Platforms

Mark your calendars: Warhammer 40k Space Marine 2 will be available on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC starting September 9, 2024.

It’s important to note that this is a current-gen exclusive, so Xbox One players won’t be able to experience the game natively. Cloud gaming might be an alternative, but confirmation is needed.

Join the Closed Beta (if you can)

Hopeful for early access? There are rumors of a closed beta hosted by Focus Entertainment closer to launch. The only way to potentially join is by signing up on their website. There’s no confirmed date yet, and signing up doesn’t guarantee a spot, but it’s your chance to participate.

What’s the Story?

The galaxy is in chaos. The fortress world of Cadia is destroyed, a warp rift tears reality apart, and the Tyranids threaten humanity’s future. With Primarch Roboute Guilliman leading the charge, Lieutenant Titus, alongside his brothers Chairon and Gadriel, will fight the Tyranid swarms and Chaos forces in the name of the Emperor!

With its intense action, deep lore, and the promise of a satisfying power fantasy, Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 is shaping up to be a must-play for fans of the grim darkness of the far future. Stay tuned for further updates and prepare to purge the unclean!
