Warhammer fans will get to battle against each other again in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine 2, according to a new trailer released during the 2024 Warhammer Skulls event on Thursday.

We’ve known that the game, developed by Saber Interactive, would feature co-op for the single-player campaign, but we now know that it’ll have more co-op modes, including a 6v6 PVP mode called “Eternal War.” This is good news for fans of the original Space Marine game from 2011, which featured a beloved PVP mode.

Co-op mode! 6 on 6 online multiplayer action! And Chaos Space Marines!

In “Eternal War,” you can play as either Chaos Space Marines or the Adeptus Astartes across six modes, which includes PVP favorites like Capture & Control.

There is even more co-op in store. You can play through the campaign in teams of three, and, announced during the event, there’s a three-player co-op mode called Operations, which features a number of missions.

We also got a look at the customization options, which allow you to paint your Space Marine in a number of colors and equip him with unique pieces of gear. There are six classes to choose from as well, from the tanky Bulwark to a sniper.

Otherwise, the trailer shows off the third-person shooting gameplay, with melee combat thrown in for good measure

The game is available for preorder ahead of its September 9 release date. There are four editions you can buy, from just the base game, to a gigantic collector’s edition that includes a Lieutenant Titus bust and an artbook.

This wasn’t the only reveal at the event. Warhammer also revealed Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus 2a new tactical strategy game, and Talisman: Digital Edition coming for tabletop players.

honor of kings sgf 2024 preview banner

Honor of Kings isn’t exactly a new game. In fact, it’s the largest mobile multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game, with more than 200 million registered players. And it's finally coming to a global audience after years of being limited to a select few countries.

The biggest draw of Tencent's flagship MOBA is its mobile-friendly gameplay with short games, perfect for commutes and short breaks. Similar to League of Legends: Wild Rift, it shrinks the typical MOBA experience down to a more digestible version. At Summer Game Fest, I tried out the tutorial and a bot game with one of the characters. Based on that taste, Honor of Kings seems to deliver what it promises: a concise, streamlined MOBA game that ends within 15 to 20 minutes, and features enough variety so that the matches don't feel repetitive.

Phantom Blade Zero delivers the action I wanted from Stellar Blade
The main character in Phantom Blade Zero

I liked Stellar Blade for the PlayStation 5 when it launched in April, but I'll admit its gameplay was a bit slower than I had hoped. Shift Up's game leaned more into its Dark Souls influence rather than Nier: Automata's roots during combat. I've been looking for a new character-action game that makes me feel powerful with flashy animations, big combos, and a fast pace. After going hands-on with a demo of Phantom Blade Zero at Summer Game Fest, I think it's the game I was looking for all along.

I was actually a bit skeptical heading into my appointment for Phantom Blade Zero. Its reveal trailers were so flashy that I had my doubts that they were showing actual gameplay. While the camera work in those trailers is definitely a bit different than what's in-game, Phantom Blade Zero's fights are just as exhilarating to play as they are to watch. If you're attending any of the shows where a demo for it will be available this year, you have to give it a shot.
