Fans seem ready to step into Captain Titus’ boots and play as a Primaris Space Marine. The game features a co-op PvE, a PvP, and a single-player campaign, meaning that everyone can enjoy the game regardless of one’s liking or dislike for playing with other people. Saber Interactive’s CEO recently posted regarding the game on his X account:

The post was oozing with confidence from the CCO as he was almost sure that the title would be the ‘best action game’ of 2024, which indubitably means the game will have some gigantic shoes to fill. But it seems like fans of the series were ready to back up Saber Interactive on that claim.

Fans could be seen expressing that they were impressed with the trailer and that they couldn’t wait to play. Some also stated that it had been 13 long years since the game’s predecessor and that their wait had finally come to an end :

Space Marine 2‘s delay caused a lot of fans to express their impatience, too and it was called for since there is nothing quite like the titles in the modern video game space. Finally, when the game was announced, plenty of good news came.

One such good news was the absence of microtransactions that can influence gameplay or be termed pay-to-win. This was shared in a Steam Community Update by the game’s team:

We want Space Marine 2 to be an experience tailor-crafted for the players. Hence, we’re happy to confirm that there aren’t any microtransactions in Space Marine 2. No in-game cash shop. All gameplay content and features will be free to all players. Any paid DLCs will be cosmetic only.

While there has been an increase in titles with little to no pay-to-win microtransactions, the number is still not comparable to titles with such microtransactions. And when a game developer ensures fair play for everyone, it exudes confidence and security in their title. What do you think of the upcoming title by Saber Interactive? We would love to know your thoughts in the comments below.
