Get ready to join the forces of Chaos with the new DLC for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

Well, that didn't take long, did it? Hot on the heels of the free downloadable content that came out last week, THQ has announced yet another addition for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. This new add-on features a slew of content, though it won't be free when it comes out.

The new DLC pack will sell for 800 Microsoft Points ($9.99 on other platforms) when it's released. It'll include a new Exterminatus co-op mode called "Chaos Unleashed." This mode will cast players as Chaos Marines who are going up against both Orks and the Imperial Guard. There are also going to be three new multiplayer maps, boss battles, and a new enemy unit: the Imperial Sanctioned Psyker. Additionally, it sounds like the game will also receive a free Capture The Flag mode when the update comes out.

Finally, Space Marine is also getting some new skins for Alpha Legion, Blood Angels, Legion of the Damned, and Salamanders; the skins will sell for 240 MS Points.

Neither THQ nor Relic has revealed exactly when the DLC will arrive, though they have stated that it'll be released simultaneously for Windows, Xbox Live, and the PlayStation Network. Currently, "December" is about as specific as anyone will say.
