This will not shock anyone that followed our coverage of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
, but I finished the game yesterday. Sure, I don't have all the achievements, but the story is done and at the end of the day, I had one big question: "Why did I just put myself through an entire campaign in which I slaughtered Orks and Chaos Space Marines, the two actual 40k armies I own? Why couldn't I BE a Chaos Space Marine and instead murder thousands of Imperial Guardsmen?"
THQ must have heard my plea as they just announced the first piece of premium DLC for Warhammer 40k: Space Marine
, "Chaos Unleashed". This DLC adds on to the recently released free DLC
, "Exterminatus", which is a co-op Horde mode.
The new Exterminatus mode being showcased in "Chaos Unleashed" has you and up to three friends taking on the role of Chaos Space Marines as you wage war against the Imperial Guard, Space Marines and, yes, the Orks. THQ has promised new units to fight against, including the Imperial Sanctioned Pysker.
In addition to the new Chaos Space Marine Exterminatus mode, "Chaos Unleashed" comes with three new maps usable in every multiplayer mode: Habs Ablaze, Station Tertius and Aquila Canyon.
As if that's not enough new content for you, a new Capture the Flag mode will be released as a second piece of FREE DLC. Every map, including the new maps, will be usable for Capture the Flag, though we all know the crumbling bridge map will be the best one.
Finally, unique player skins will be available to purchase for 240 MSP apiece. The Space Marines can choose from a Salamander skin or Blood Angel skin, while the Chaos Space Marines get an Alpha Legion skin or a Legion of the Damned skin.
"Chaos Unleashed" will be available in December for 800 MSP and includes ten new achievements, estimated to be worth 250 GS.
