Hyped for Gears of War: E-Day? Looking to play something similar before its rumoured 2025 release window? Well, it might be worth checking out Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2, which comes to Xbox Series X|S later this year.

Following a few chunky delays, Space Marine 2 looks like it's shaping up nicely, and a fresh gameplay overview trailer has us pretty darn excited about this one. It looks like it ups the ante in terms of overall scale, and if the gameplay is there to match, we should be in for a real treat with this upcoming co-op shooter.

"Prepare for the satisfyingly brutal, most epic battle of 2024 and continue the story of legendary Space Marine Lieutenant Titus, voiced by Vikings and Taken star Clive Standen. Drive back the everlasting night solo or in up to 3-player co-op in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2’s epic new campaign."

Part of the reason we mention Gears here, aside from the E-Day hype of course, is that the first Space Marine game was often mentioned as a decent alternative to the Xbox exclusive series - and we're hoping that trend continues with the sequel.

We'll know for sure when Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2 lands for Xbox Series X and S on September 9th, 2024.
