The rumours were true: Warhammer 40K: Space Marine 2 will boast both PvE and PvP multiplayer modes alongside its single-player campaign (which can also be played in co-op). The two modes were confirmed during the Warhammer Skulls 2024 event earlier today, complete with the gory gameplay that we've posted at the top of this article.

So, first up, we've got 'Operations' — a three-player co-op mode that has you mowing down monstrous hordes while completing missions. And then there's 'Eternal War', which is a six-versus-six battle to the death. Both of these multiplayer offerings are made up of six character classes, and you'll be able to customise your Marine with all sorts of cosmetics.

It's starting to sound like Space Marine 2 will be rather robust when it launches for PS5 on the 9th September.
