The action-adventure game by Saber Interactive – Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 – is releasing in 2023. But will it support crossplay and cross-platform compatibility?
Action adventure games have the uncanny ability to transport one to a parallel world, away from everyday stressors and things bogging you down. The Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 is a highly-awaited title, the sequel to its phenomenally successful predecessor. The title has been developed by Saber Interactive and presented by Focus Entertainment.
Saber Interactive, a studio best known for fluidity in gaming, has put its heart into developing an enthralling and addictive experience like never before. Prepare to don the role of a Space Marine and protect the world from the evils lurking in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. As a superhuman warrior, you will apply your strengths to defeat anyone who dares to threaten humanity – the Tyranids, in particular. The world will be grateful.
But here’s the million-dollar question: will the game be available on multiple platforms? Also, will it support crossplay?
On which platforms is Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 releasing?
Here’s the brilliant news: the title will be available on multiple platforms: PC, PlayStation (PS5), Xbox, and Nintendo Switch. Both Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will have complete compatibility. Players on all these platforms can enjoy high-octane gameplay in a format tailored and optimized to their environment.
The official release date has not been confirmed yet. But it is expected to get launched this winter (2023).
Cross-platform on Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2: What to expect
The development studio has persevered to adapt the game to leverage the most of your platform. For instance, PC players can tinker with the graphics and performance settings aligned to the available hardware. You can expect a 4K resolution and a high refresh rate to let you dive into an alternate reality.
We also anticipate elaborate mouse and keyboard controls to stop your control method from becoming a liability. These customizations permit players to make the most of the game for their platform of choice, no holds barred.
If your preferred platform is a PlayStation, you can expect full compatibility with the Dualshock 4 controller and the PlayStation VR. These additions enhance a player’s overall experience by upping the level of immersion and fine-tuning the virtual reality experience.
Ditto for Xbox: you can use your controller to make the Space Marine existence feel like a second skin. The gameplay will also benefit from faster frame rates to take the action to another level. The other splendid news is that the title will get added to the Xbox Game Pass.
Will Warhammer 40K Space Marine 2 support Crossplay?
It is likely, but the official confirmation isn’t in yet. The original game offered multiplayer functionality (three-player co-op). Plus, the subject and the story are congenial to joining forces with your friends to combat brutal foes. So, we’ll grant that the latest launch will probably also support a cooperative multiplayer mode and compatibility across platforms. We expect to confirm this closer to the release date.
Saber Interactive has a track record of delivering fiercely engaging content – remember World War Z? With a parent like that, players aren’t expecting anything less with the latest edition of Warhammer. Compatibility with cross-platform will only render things a great deal more satisfying.
