Dawn of War and Company of Heroes developer Relic are brushing away the console cobwebs, THQ announces they're working on Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.
This third-person action-RPG title for Xbox 360 and PS3 will follow a squad of space marines charged with retaking a Forge World from Orks. Online play a big focus.
Some may remember the footage that came out last year (in September) for a third-person ARPG set in the Space Marine universe, well that's nothing to do with Relic's work say THQ.
Players will control a single Space Marine as they battle against hordes of Ork Nobs and the like, while they mix up melee and weapon based carnage. Few details have been disclosed right now but a major focus will be implementing multiplayer; co-op is a possibility.
