95w ago - THQ Director of Community Management Chris Mancil has posted up a video today showcasing Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team which hits the PlayStation 3 via PSN on August 2, 2011.
To quote: Ready to get a dose of intense combat action and destruction? We have good news!
Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is coming to PlayStation Network and will be available August 2nd in North America for $9.99.
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 WAAAGH!?
Kill Team allows players to choose from four unique classes, including ranged specialists the Sternguard, Veteran, and Techmarine, as well as 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.
