Just a fast update. A new trailer for Space Marine is out, which seems to confirm that the Chaos Legion will be the Iron Warriors. Eight pointed star, representin’!

Not much game play footage here, but it’s nice to see some jet pack action. I’m actually a little surprised at how many trailers there have been. THQ has done a great job generating buzz about this title. A few years back, fights would probably break out in front of game stores as fans rush to get a copy. Now thanks to Steam, the chances of that are probably reduced.

Also, in case you haven’t seen it, THQ unveiled a new trailer for Dark Millennium Online last month.

This trailer doesn’t mention anything new or any details of the game. Basically just takes some new game play footage and scratches it around with a sepia background to give it a horror film look. THQ is just stoking fan interest for a game that’s not due until 2013 at the earliest. But thus far, it looks like they’ve got a good amount of the game built while still trying to figure out some of the “game rules” and structure.

It’s way too early to claim with any certainty, but DMO could be the World of Warcraft game killer that has been due for sometime. Warhammer Online tried and made Blizzard push out the WoW expansion Wrath of the Lich King. But WAR ultimately sank back into a niche market of realm versus realm combat.

Still, given Warhammer 40,000’s huge fan following and the fact that WoW will be nearly 10 years old by the time DMO comes out, I suspect Blizzard will try countering with a new MMORPG. A Diablo one, maybe. Usurping WoW‘s throne is going to happen sometime!
