The trailer mostly showcased the fast-paced action, as well as the huge buildings Captain Titus will fight aliens in. It's available to wishlist on Steam right now. Space Marine 2 was actually first announced at The Game Awards in 2021, but without release year attached at the time.
Much of the gameplay seems very similar to the original Space Marine--which means players can expect both melee and shooter action, and slashing through big waves of alien hordes. Saber Interactive is more recently known for World War Z, a co-op zombie shooter.
Space Marine was rated a 7/10 in GameSpot's Space Marine review. Reviewer Kevin VanOrd praised the game for its fun combination of melee and shooter action, but criticized its dull narrative and roster of characters.
