Free Space Marine DLC Launching in Late October

Free Space Marine DLC Launching in Late October

image

Grab a few friends and chainsaw some Orks as a team in Space Marine's upcoming cooperative missions.

Players eager to slash through more hordes of xenos in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine won't have to wait too long as developer Relic Entertainment has set October 25th as the release date for the game's newest DLC pack.

Called "Exterminatus," the new DLC introduce a cooperative mode of the same name that will let players battle together against Orks and other enemies from Space Marine's single-player campaign. Progression made in the co-op mode will apply to players' multiplayer ranking, and bonus perks earned in Space Marine's other modes can be used in the in the team-based setting.

Currently the "Exterminatus" DLC has two scenarios lined up, titled "Assault on Hab Center Andreas" and "Escape from Kalkys Facility," which by name alone may give a few hints as to what sort of objectives players should expect to accomplish. Players will be judged on their in-game performance, and may face additional challenges based on their successes.

Relic currently has several more DLC packs for Space Marine in the works, and has stated that future downloadable content will be a mix of both free and premium updates.

Booooooooooooooooo! They said pre-Space Marine release that this was going to be released in early October :( I was looking forward to Ork killing any day now.

Oh well, at least it's still coming! I'm looking forward to it! Plus more potentially free DLC in the works! I would pay for good DLC, I love the game.

Not a fan of the game, not a fan of the Warhammer universe by a long stretch, but this is pretty damn awesome. Ya know, even though im just stating the obvious, when I know a developer or publisher will throw me some free DLC from time to time instead of giving me nothing or charging 10 euros for what would have been a small patch a few years ago, im about 200% as likely to purchase their next title new for the full 60 bucks.

Whew..

I was half tempted to return it in Rapestop's Hate/Beat 7 Days but the multiplayer code did work >.> so I guess I might keep it....this will do...to occupy my time til Skyrim

Aghh me and my buds are so psyched for this, I reckon it's gonna be a blast!

I already knew this was coming but I'm still excited nonetheless. Time to get myself up to Level 41 before this jewel comes out!
You said it was 30 day DLC Relic! I hope the delay will make it better.

Any word on whether you can play as other chapters besides Ultramarines in this DLC? (Will it function as 'co-op' in the multiplayer sense or in the campaign sense)

You play as your marine from multiplayer, assault, tactical or devestator and with the perks/armour/weapons you got there :p

OT: Looking forward too it, mostly the reason I bought it on the PC, so I could play the coop on the PC with him :D

>:( bloody hell .... the 25th?! lame .... well fine, be like that, i'll just keep killing my friends till then

It's awesome that they're planning on releasing this stuff for free, but my question is how are they going to get this past Microsoft. Doesn't Microsoft have a policy against allowing free DLC on Xbox Live?

Huh, I was just playing multiplayer on this.

I've been checking the add on marketplace every day for this, so it's good to see a date for it. Looking forward to having a little more variety online.

i seem to remember the DLC is free for first time buyers.

Not coming out as soon as I would hope but I hope they do dedicated servers for this mode.

And system-link? (i.e. can two people play on one copy if only one of them has XBL; a la Halo: Reach)

Grrrr, LATE OCTOBER?!?!? RAWRRR! THE IMPERIUM'S JUSTICE MUST BE METED OUT NOW!

Nope, it's completely free for everyone. If you're buying used, you have to pay a $10 fee to go past Level 5 and use the customizer but that isn't relevant.

Kudos to Relic with their manner for how the online pass works. You don't have to get it to play online, only to get beyond level 5. Other companies could take a note or two on how Relic is handeling the online pass. Also what is your avatar?

Excellent! Glory to the God-Emperor brothers!

Space Marine DLC had me excited, co-op single player demolished that nicely.
