PC and console action shooter Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will be released in Europe on 9th September, THQ has revealed.

The US date is 6th September.

That represents a slight delay; the game was originally down for an August arrival.

Sold alongside the standard Space Marine game will be a Collector's Pack, which contains a 10" replica Purity seal, a hardback art book, the soundtrack, 25 shiny character cards, the game and a snazzy box.

There's no specified UK price. THQ's US online store charges a higher-than-normal $99.99 (£62). Therefore we may be looking at higher than £59.99.

Space Marine features meaty melee combat blended with sci-fi shooting. It's developed by Relic Entertainment, creators of the well-recieved Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War titles for PC.

Eurogamer went hands-on with Space Marine last month and declared it "shaping up to be a rare gem" - "familiarly visceral in its explosive, breathlessly violent action."
