As we plod our way toward September, nearing the day Warhammer 40K: Space Marine is finally released, Relic and THQ have continued to tantalize with new assets. Today sees the release of a four-part video series named Dark Future, through which 40K newbies can get an overview of the vast universe before them.
The videos, in order, cover the universe, the Space Marines, their weapons, and enemies of Mankind -- Orks, Chaos Marines, and Chaos Daemons. If you're completely clueless about 40K, Dark Future provides a decent synopsis that accurately captures the spirit if not all the details.
The scope of the content explored in Dark Future is limited by relevance to the Space Marine game, but the presentation is nothing short of epic. We wouldn't expect any less from something with the Warhammer 40K name attached.
Warhammer 40K: Space Marine will be released on September 6 in North America and September 9 in Europe. Enjoy the videos.
Part I: Our Universe
Part II: Our Brothers
