Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command marks the first time the brutal, war-ravaged world of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 universe will be playable on the NDS and PSP. Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command features action-packed combat and turn-based strategy through an engaging, authentic single-player storyline. Gamers play as the elite Space Marines of the Ultramarines chapter and strive to combat the encroaching evil of the daemonic forces of Chaos through 13 cinematically-tied missions.

Set in the vibrant and immersive world of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe, the demo gives players a taste of the fast paced strategic action and futuristic weaponry fans of this series have grown to know and love. Gamers are thrust into the heart of the action as their Chapter battles to save the planet of Ruhr III from the grasp of the daemonic Chaos Space Marines.

Players are given command of a small squad of five Space Marines as well as a heavily armoured Dreadnaught to complete their objective. These units showcase some of the 20 types of weapon on offer in this title as well as the player customizable equipment each unit can carry.

The complete game will feature a gripping and immersive storyline spanning 15 single player missions set in vivid 3D environments with destructible terrain and customizable units. Players will also be able to enjoy over nine unique multiplayer maps as either Space Marines or the corrupted forces of Chaos with up to seven opponents from across the globe.

So what are you waiting for? Download the free Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command demo for Sony PSP from the THQ site now and get right into the action!

The full version of Warhammer 40,000: Squad Command will be available for Nintendo DS and Sony PSP in November.
