Warhammer 40k: Kill Team announced

The 'grimdark' future of war is coming over all-arcade in Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team, a twin-stick shooter announced today by publisher THQ. Developed at THQ's internal Digital Studios UK team, Kill Team is due on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in July. No word of a PC release, sorry.

Playing as one of four Space Marines classes--Sternguard Veteran, Techmarine, Vanguard Veteran or Librarian--players are sent to stop an Ork Kroozer from attacking a Forge World. It'll support two-player split-screen co-op, for you to bring a chapter buddy to the slaughter. Six different chapter skins are on offer, so you won't get stuck in a boring one like the Ultramarines.

As a bonus, completing the first Kill Team mission will unlock a Power Sword for you to wave around in Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's multiplayer.
