Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team Date Announced

THQ Inc. today announced that arcade shooter, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team will be available to purchase for Playstation Network on the 2nd August in North America and 10th August in Europe.

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!?

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team for PS3 (PSN)

Players who complete the first mission in Kill Team will unlock the deadly Power Sword weapon for use in multiplayer in the upcoming Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine. Sheathed in a power field, it cuts through armor and flesh alike and features unique animations, combos and damage output.

Kill Team allows players to choose from four unique classes, including ranged specialists the Sternguard Veteran and Techmarine, and 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.

Good price & hopefully a discount for plus members, maybe 20%?

Dante_Zero 29 July, 2011 @ 4:21 pm   4

@ shedboy90

Frustrating isn’t it?

They get games, movies etc alot earlier than we do :(

@catkiller1
yh it is
what is so special about north america?

shedboy90 29 July, 2011 @ 4:36 pm   7

north america has the us which is a disadvantage:)

Mikal_Drey 29 July, 2011 @ 4:42 pm   8

hey hey

I saw some gameplay of this and it looks pretty decent. nice price too.

Demo ?

Shou_Kobayashi 29 July, 2011 @ 4:43 pm   9

1.) Rad Darksiders Avatar, mind if you release them here… if you already have… Ooops silly me

2.) 7,99 €! WOAH! I mean … WOAH! That’s quite an offer guys. This will seal the deal

3.) I’ve pre-ordered my Warhammer 40.000: Space Marine FIRST EDITION, did you ;)?

I am a little annoyed about having to wait an extra week more than the US has to, especially as we PS3 users in general have had to wait an extra month longer than X-Box 360 users, but at least it is only a week. Some games take months to make their way over the Atlantic.
Good price as well, especially if there is a Plus discount.

 
Lord_Gremlin 29 July, 2011 @ 5:08 pm   11

It’s an old XBLA game, and – great shame – only fun in offline co-op. What’s up with all those old XBLA games being presented like some new content?
New Warhammer 40K game (the retail one) looks neat though, it may be worth buying this small old game just to get exclusive item – you only need to complete 1 mission in Kill Team to get the item.

 
taurus82 29 July, 2011 @ 5:18 pm   12

I am bloody excited for this and as for Space Marine, I’ve pre-ordered the standard edition as I would prefer to found my own chapter or recreate a relatively unknown chapter (such as Tauran, White Minotaurs or Brazen Minotaurs).

looks cool,and it has a nice price to
will there be a demo?

handofkhaine 29 July, 2011 @ 6:34 pm   14

Looks great, can’t wait!

But what I’d like to know is why it’s out in the US 8 days before the UK?

THQ is in Surrey and Games Workshop is in Nottingham!!

 
xxSamuraiGirlxx 29 July, 2011 @ 7:13 pm   15

online coop?

valleys_boy 29 July, 2011 @ 9:40 pm   16

finally a release date, pity we have to wait an extra week over the US

 
Tank_Baked 29 July, 2011 @ 10:26 pm   17

No online co op sorry guys . I was really disappointed when I found out . Guess this is already on xbox live and it’s been confirmed no online co op . :(

piotrml 29 July, 2011 @ 11:22 pm   18

I can’t open my playStation store,and downloading game?

 
thekeats1999 29 July, 2011 @ 11:35 pm   19

can i ask why is this getting released one month after the xbox (it wasn’t a summer of arcade release like from dust) and a week after the us. Especially seeing as it is an English franchise with it’s main fanbase in this country?

Seems like sony aren’t really trying any more

ivancard 30 July, 2011 @ 4:48 am   20

Seriously, I don’t think this game will be any good at all!

 
HazelAM 30 July, 2011 @ 7:33 am   21

looks cool, this and space marine.

but you know what would be really cool, a warhammer 40k rpg.
that would be AWESOME.

 
taurus82 30 July, 2011 @ 9:45 am   22

@HazelAM

Something like Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance set in the W40K universe, I’d definitely buy that?

 
lunalicrichard 30 July, 2011 @ 11:01 am   23

it is a fun game , for an hour in between other play sessions .
and if you like the warhammer universe ,even better !
the game is 800 mp on xbox marketplace / 10 euro and well worth it in my book. got it the second it came online .

 
lunalicrichard 30 July, 2011 @ 11:06 am   24

@ samuraigirl ;
No ,only on the couch co-op ! it would have been so much better if it could be over live or psn !

 
RemyX-1988 30 July, 2011 @ 1:15 pm   25

We’re always late. I’m still waiting for The King of Fighters ’95, too! North America got this game two weeks ago! C’mon, Sony!

 
skidpro 30 July, 2011 @ 1:38 pm   26

I looked for this on PSN, no show, so I got it on XBLA, now you say its coming to PSN!!! Arghhh!! I aint buying it again for 1 weapon…look it is about time these games had simultaneous release on both consoles…..I have both consoles so I got it on XBLA as no annoucement was made until today for PSN? I only got it wednesday so I gave it plenty of time to be announced on PSN..how annoying…!

THE_DIRTY_PERSON 30 July, 2011 @ 3:24 pm   27

Add your comment here

(PROPER) TURN BASE STRATEGY WARHAMER 40 000 would make sense …. , looks good anyway only 10 days and we will see ;-)

STORMSHOT89 31 July, 2011 @ 1:49 pm   29

Played it already on 360 great game with old school gameplay. would defo recommend it to others to have a go on. Only downside the co-op mode wasn’t online. still 7/10 worthy.

Danny_GBUK 31 July, 2011 @ 6:32 pm   30

Possibly the worst title for a game of all time.

“Kill Team”. You tits. I know there’s a reasonable market of people who like GW stuff and will buy it whatever, but you could have at least tried to get some newbies in with an appealing title.

TehPhilosopher 31 July, 2011 @ 6:45 pm   31

FINALLY! This is a welcome addition, and a good bonus for my pre-ordered Space Marine :P

Kill Team is a good title, what’s wrong with it?

#21 and #22: google Dark Millennium, it’s a WH40k MMO coming in 2012/2013 from THQ/Vigil Games.

 
taurus82 1 August, 2011 @ 11:22 am   32

@31 There is nothing to suggest that it is PS3 bound, though.

 
Rywhandar 1 August, 2011 @ 11:18 pm   33

I have to admit that first waiting for a release date in general was bad, and to wait a month after the Xbox is worse. Normally I don’t mind waiting, but this game I’ve been waiting a lot for. Hope Space Marine arrives on schedule.

straightsilver 2 August, 2011 @ 3:22 pm   34

Oh Yeah can’t wait for this and spacemarine, about time we had a 40k game on the playstation and playing as a deathwatch killteam too how cool is that, just wish you could pick from a whole range of chapters to play in spacemarine, blood angels or spacewolves would be really cool

Omegastoopreme 4 August, 2011 @ 1:27 pm   35

How much is it gonna be on UK PSN?
