THQ has confirmed that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will be receiving co-operative multiplayer. The mode will not be launching with the game but rather will be dropping 30 days later as free additional DLC. That is, unless you purchase the game used. It’s looking as though THQ will be using some sort of online pass seemingly to dissuade players from buying the title second hand.
So far all that is known about the co-op is that it will support up to five players, but THQ will have more information for us within the month. In the meantime, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team landed on PSN last week for $9.99 and has been available on XBLA if you’d like to check that out. I really enjoyed my time with Kill Team at E3 and am looking forward to playing both titles. Be on the look out for Space Marine when it drops on September 6.
