Twin Stick Co-Op Shooter Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team Announced

THQ have announced a downloadable twin stick shooter set in the Warhammer 40K universe called Warhammer 40,000: KIll Team.  Players take the role of an elite Space Marine team sent to assault a giant Ork Kroozer en-route to an Imperial Forge World.  The game promises big boss battles and plenty of gory death as you try to "prevent the waaaaaagh."

Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team will feature two player couch co-op play through the entire game - sorry folks - no online here.  Players can choose from four different player classes: Sternguard Veteran ,Techmarine, Vanguard Veteran and Librarian.  Each class has their own unique strengths and weaknesses which most likely will come into effect during the game's co-op gameplay.

Kill Team will be released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this July for $10 and will offer fans a chance to unlock a unique weapon in Warhammer 40K: Space Marine when that releases later this year.
