Today THQ has made it official. Relic, the makers of Dawn of War are embarking on the long awaited RPG based on the Ultra Marines Chapter.

Besides the still in development  MMO, 40k is getting a top of the line game from a proven developer. I have great faith that Relic will delivery where Kuju did not with Fire Warrior. One word of warning, Relic is known for its RTSs not for anything else, so the real test will be can they translate the greatness of their other franchises into the same video game gold.

Judging from this Battle Trailer I think the answer will be hell YES!
