If you’re a Warhammer 40,000 fans, you can now play one of the best games of the entire franchise by downloading it via the Humble Bundle on PC. The Space Marine Humble Bundle will be getting you the 2011 hit for free exclusively on the PC until September 15, a little over two weeks from now.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine tells the tale of Captain Titus of the Ultramarines Chapter in the war-torn universe of Warhammer 40,000. When the Forge World of Graia is invaded by marauding hordes of Orks, Titus and his squad are sent in to help the Imperial defenses hold until a full liberation fleet can be sent to help retake the world. However, there is a far more sinister threat lurking under the surface of the invasion.
The game became famous for having the advertising motto “cover is for the weak”, as you are rewarded in game by going headlong into the enemy and butchering them in melee and from afar with a wide variety of different weapons given to you throughout the story, leaving cover, for the most part, a non-issue. A pretty good-sized single player campaign with amazing environments, a wide variety of weapons to choose from, and even multiplayer, the game is worth your time even if you’re not a 40K fan.
In order to get the code that will allow you to get the Space Marine Humble Bundle deal, you have to make a Humble Bundle account, and then look for the code in the email that the Humble Bundle service will be sending you. From there, enter the code into Steam, and you’ll have the game installing in your library in no time.
A Space Marine Humble Bundle deal is likely what that game needs to kick some life back into it, especially since it’s been seven years since it came out. While it may not last a while, if you’re a Warhammer 40K fan looking for something more substantial than Dawn of War, this might be just what you need.
