Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is free in the Humble Store Summer Sale


The Humble Store Summer Sale went live today, and that means two good things for one. One, there are a bunch of games on sale, individually and in various packages. And two, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is free until Saturday.

Space Marine is a third-person shooter developed by Relic and released back in 2011. And it was pretty good—we rated it among the best of the very many Warhammer games on PC—although not quite good enough to warrant a sequel before publisher THQ imploded. To get yours, just click here, hit the big green “get the game” button, and then follow the instructions. For the Emperor! Or, you know, because it’s free. Whatever.

The Space Marine freebie is up for grabs until 10 am PT/1 pm ET on September 1. There are plenty of other conventional (which is to say, “not free”) deals as well, including publisher bundles and a whack of indie stuff too. The Humble Store Summer Sale runs until September 13.

Sequel when?

I’m still salty we never got a sequel to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, the surprisingly decent third-person shooter from Relic that lets you clobber countless Orks. So many adaptations have come and gone since 2011, but I still hold it in high regard right up there with the Dawn of War series.

If you have no idea what I’m on about, you can check out the game for free. The Humble Store is giving out Space Marine for 48 hours. You have until September 1 at 10:00 am Pacific to nab a PC copy.

Even if you’re completely unfamiliar with Warhammer 40K, don’t let that hold you back.
