I have just spoken to a THQ customer service guy and he told me the only way to get the Demo is to pre-order the Honour Guard version from GAME and there is a code you get given to be able to download it from a certain website. I was also told the Demo is only available to those who pre-order and not the general public despite the that fact the demo is "worldwide" and available to everyone else. He then went to say that the game will not be put on steam until the release date for activation and will not be in the Steam UK store at all, which confused me.

EDIT just registered and got the honour guard, bloody Demo still not avaliable!

Strange, I haven't preordered the game and was able to install and play the demo through Steam. Maybe that's a UK-only stupidity?

That is somewhat incorrect information. The demo was only available to pre-order buyers until yesterday. It should be available to everyone already, I was able to download the demo about 17 hours ago . If you still can't download the demo, then go read the Steam support forums, might be an answer there.

I was only going but what THQ told me over the phone. Also the Demo is not avaliable to the UK steam THQ has said the game will not be avaliable to purchase and the demo will not be availiable on UK steam just the pre-oreder honour guard. I have checked the forums, There is the honour guard pre-order but there is a problem with that as well, a lot of people are saying that when the redeem code is entered you get a message saying redeem code already used. It won't accept mine as i have joined the "honour guard" and got my redeem code and it comes up already been redeemed! am gonna cry!

If you can't get the demo, have Steam running and put this "steam://install/55410" into your browser.  Some people on RelicNews have said that's worked for them.

I have a complaint. I'm pretty sure I know the cause of the problem (budget looks different when you're doing a AAA action title than when you're doing a RTS), and it's both forgivable and understandable: the audio is much wholly inferior to the audio in DoW/DoWII. Not so much the DAKKADAKKADAKKA, but the voicework and music (granted, we've certainly not heard all the music). When the orks go WAAAGH near the lift it's...less impressive than when they do so in The Last Stand. More to the point, we've gone from upwards of five hours of context-senstive unit barks (~ fifteen minutes per hero, times three heroes, times three races. Now factor in regular units) in addition to all the campaign voicework to...well, just the campaign voicework. I loved all the stuff Orks said in DoWII. Here? I barely notice. They have some forgettable stuff about killing more humans and/or space marines, but even their voices just aren't as cool anymore, nevermind what they're actually saying. Captain Titus is so restrained he's, well, boring (contrast with this). What the hell happened to fury and zeal?

A minor complaint, and doubtless due to budgetary constraints, but disappointing nonetheless after the fantastic work in DoWI/II.

EDIT: Well, someone on another forum is telling me he read somewhere that this is from an earlier build, and the voicework has been redone significantly since there. Hope, I still has it.

Crap why the hell is the UK not allowed the demo(funny how WH40k is a UK IP)!! Website says Worldwide release for Space marine Demo, click on the link and Steam says " This item is unavailable in your region"  So if this game requires steam how are we supposed to get the game activated on Steam UK when it has been removed?????????

Note what the THQ rep  said about GAME exclusivity as well.

I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Pre-ordered, but used free shipping, so maybe it'll be a week or so. Whatever, $27.

Finished it at easy. Disregarding multiple endings, that was kinda a letdown at the end.

Of course it's easy, and I didn't get all the collectibles, so...still possible there's something else.

... I think I just saw this exact post a while back on TVTropes.

Anyway, I'm fairing alright so far. Only the Orks with Chainswords are giving me troubles. Otherwise, I'm jake with everything.

Oh. And Jump Packs are so broken in SP, it's lucky they're far between.
