Warhammer 40k Space Marine Is Getting What The Franchise Finally Deserves

Coming from a family who has collected and played Warhammer 40k since I was born and been a local cult I was always excited for any upcoming game set in the Warhammer 40k lore. Although I never collected the Space Marines myself (Necrons FTW!) I always admired how cool they looked and how a small statue can perceive such violence and history. Dawn Of War which was created in 2004 by Relic Entertainment  was somewhat a corning stone to how the 40k universe was beginning to arrive to the gamers out there who enjoyed the lore but just couldnt understand the game or just thought it was too expensive, the RTS defiantly hit high notes and became an instant hit with all 40k fans alike but as for the console, not so much. 
Warhammer 40k: Fire Warrior puts you in the boots of a Tau Warrior in your missions against Space Marine and Chaos Space Marines across the galaxy with a linear experience, the game received decent reviews but the game was a touch and go experience and was easily forgotten, maybe it was because you played as a Tau warrior? (Pussys!) But sadly no other developer jumped on the horse to make another game set in the 40k universe until now of course, Relic have for a long time wanted to get into the console buisness for quite a while and with ALOT of success on PC Relic are finally hitting the consoles hard with the Ultra Marines.
The video above shows some pretty solid gameplay and a look at Relic's studio, I cant wait for this game I truly hope that the game becomes a success and grabs more people into the franchise and experience what I have had in ther next year or so.
Also for anyone that just couldn't be bothered to look up 40k and doesn't have a clue what it is this 30 second video will explain everything!
