Intergalactic shooter Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will lift off in August, THQ has confirmed.

The publisher refused to be any more specific but did reveal a little more about the game's story. As it turns out, you'll not only be defending your Imperial Forge World from a million-strong Ork army, but the forces of Chaos are also shopping for a scrap.

THQ insists that the inclusion of Chaos troops, as shown off in the screens below, will add a more strategic element to the gameplay, compared to the straightforward brute force that the Orks bring to the party.

The Relic-developed third person shooter launches on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
