Warhammer 40K: Kill Team Storms XBLA

2 mins read

Freshly announced from e3 is the arcade, third person shooter- Warhammer 40k: Killteam. THQ is readying this for release slightly before its upcoming retail release, Warhammer 40K: Space Marine.

Where they differ is that while Space Marine will be a much deep, story driven experience, Killteam will be a straight up arcade shooter. And you’ll be shooting Orks, lots and lots of Orks. Seems the green-skins have a Waaaagh planned for a nearby Imperial forge world. Think you’re gonna stand for that?

In this third person arcade style shooter, players take on the role of an elite Space Marine team sent to assault a giant Ork Kroozer en-route to an Imperial Forge World. Do you have what it takes to take out the Warboss and prevent the Waaaagh?

What’s more, there will be a weapon unlock for players who pick up the retail release after playing through this one. Pretty nice and an added incentive for fans to get both games.

Click through the jump for a few more details, no screens yet but we’ll have them as soon as they go live-

The press release:

Kill Team™ allows players to choose from four unique classes, including ranged specialists the Sternguard Veteran and Techmarine, and more melee focused classes like the Vanguard Veteran and Librarian. With two-player same screen Co-operative play, multiple weapon upgrades and six iconic Space Marine chapters to select from, Kill Team is a must-play for fans of Warhammer® 40,000®.

Players who complete the first mission in Kill Team will unlock the deadly Power Sword weapon for use in multiplayer in the upcoming Warhammer® 40,000® Space Marine®. Sheathed in a power field, it cuts through armor and flesh alike and features unique animations, combos and damage output.
