OnLive Finally Released the Multiplayer for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

After being delayed time and again, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine multiplayer has finally been released by OnLive 6 months after the game released on the OnLive marketplace. The game is priced at $29.99 in the US ($20.99 PlayPack) and £29.99 in the UK (£20.99 PlayPack). The rental prices are $4.99 for 3 days ($3.49 PlayPack) and $6.99 for 5 days ($4.89 PlayPack) in the US. In the UK the rental prices are £3.49 for 3 days (£2.44 PlayPack) and £4.99 for 5 days (£3.49 PlayPack).

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine comes to OnLive from publisher THQ, and developer Relic Entertainment. It is a third-person action game, that has been one of the more anticipated games to come to OnLive.

OnLive had this to say about the release of the Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine multiplayer: 
We just released the long-awaited multiplayer portion of Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine! Simply launch your game and select ONLINE from the main menu to unleash three savage game modes, complete with individual challenges and leaderboards:

- Seize Ground: Capture and hold objectives in this 8-on-8 Versus game mode. First team to reach 1000 points takes all!

- Annihilation: In this 8-on-8 team deathmatch, victory goes to the first team with 41 kills or the team with the most when time runs out.

- Exterminatus: Join forces in 4-player co-op to take down 20 enormous waves of enemies.

OnLive has also implemented host migration for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine multiplayer. That means that when the host of a multiplayer game leaves, the hosting of the multiplayer game is transfered to the next person, just like Call of Duty does for multiplayer. Having effective host migration is an awesome feature for OnLive to have implemented...even some AAA titles don't have this. With drop in matches and host migration, the Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine multiplayer is going to be great on OnLive.

In Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine you step into the armor of a relentless Space Marine and use a combination of lethal and deadly weapons to crush overwhelming alien forces. Immerse yourself in an intense and brutally violent world based on the richest science fiction fantasy ever created.

You are Captain Titus, a Space Marine of the Ultramarines chapter and a seasoned veteran of countless battles.

A millions-strong Ork horde has invaded an Imperial Forge World, one of the planet-sized factories where the war machines for humanity’s never ending battle for survival are created. Losing this planet is not an option, but a darker and far more evil threat is lurking large in the shadows of this world.

With an Imperial liberation fleet en-route, the Ultramarines are sent in to hold key locations until reinforcements arrive. Captain Titus and a squad of Ultramarine veterans use bolter and chainsword to take the fight to the enemies of mankind.

Key features:
  • Storm Into Battle – Step fearlessly into the heart of combat as an unstoppable Space Marine. Never hide, never cower, just purge all that stand in your way.
  • Unleash Visible Violent Death – Using an innovative new combat system, switch seamlessly from high-caliber ranged weapons to devastating close-combat strikes. Taking out an enemy has never been so satisfying.
  • Experience the dark future of Warhammer 40,000 – Jump into a rich universe of awe-inspiring landscapes, deadly enemies, immense battles and ruthless annihilation.
  • Take the Battle Online – Form your own Space Marine squad or Chaos Space Marine warband and face off in 8 vs 8 online matches. Gain experience and unlock new weapons and armor to customize the Devastator, Assault, and Tactical Marine classes.
