Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a twin-stick shooter

Warhammer 40K: Kill Team, revealed by the Australian Classification Board earlier this week, has been officially announced by THQ. Developed by the publisher's Digital Studios UK, which made Red Faction: Battlegrounds, it appears that Kill Team is the same sort of digitally distributed tie-in for a major release. In the case of Battlegrounds it was for the launch of Red Faction: Armageddon; this one ties into Space Marine.

Kill Team is a $10 (800 MSP) twin-stick shooter with two-player "same screen" co-op (we're currently following up with THQ if it's both online and couch co-op). Players will have the option of four classes (two range, two melee) and six chapters of the Space Marines to choose from. Completing the game will unlock the "Power Sword" in the upcoming Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Kill Team will be available in July, and Space Marine drops in September 6.
