Above: Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II
We haven't even made the acquaintance of the beefy battlers in Warhammer 40K: Space Marine
yet and our friends in Australia are already getting a peek at the franchise's future. The Australian Classification Board just awarded a release called Warhammer 40K: Kill Team
with an "M", presumably since it features a team that kills things.
According to the 40K wiki
, a kill-team is "a small group of Space Marines, usually no less than five Astartes but no more than a reinforced squad in size, that are tasked with carrying out a specific objective, such as the destruction of a particularly dangerous or strategically important individual, hence the name."
The title's being developed by THQ Digital Studios UK, the same house behind Red Faction: Battlegrounds
, which leads us to believe we're talking about some sort of downloadable title. We were about to say it also leads us to believe it won't be very good, but who knows? Maybe the studio was working so hard on Kill Team
that it forgot to make Battlegrounds
good? Today is
a holiday after all, the least we can do is to be generous.
