Warhammer 40K: Space Marine Demo Coming Next Week

THQ's tuned us into some particularly good news for you dear GameRevolution readers. The first is that Warhammer 40K Space Marine will be getting a demo on Xbox 360, PC, and PS3. That's right, you'll all get a chance to play as the genetically modified, armor-encased, Imperium-defending, enemy-slaying Captain Titus before Space Marine's retail release.

The demo will give players access to two different areas. The first will have players face off with an Ork army "outside the gates of a munitions factory." You know what explodes really big? Munitions factories. The demo will give players a taste of the bolter, chainsword, and a mix of melee and ranged combat. The second area will let players try out a Jump Pack sequence to "rain death from above."

The demo will be available for PC and Xbox 360 on August 23rd, and PS3 on August 24th. If you're a little eager, you can sign up on the Space Marine website for early access. Oh, and that second piece of good news? You'll have to wait for a Friday some time in the future.
