Space Hulk®: Deathwing™ is a
First-Person Shooter experience of Games Workshop’s classic Space Hulk boardgame
set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000, developed on Unreal Engine 4 by Streum
On Studio, the team behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. Published by Focus Home
Interactive and co-produced by Cyanide Studio, Space Hulk: Deathwing offers
players the chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the
claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk, as they will gain skills, new abilities
and new equipment thanks to experience earned during perilous missions.
Today, Space Hulk: Deathwing is being unveiled for the first time through a
first teaser of the game: discover this video where a Deathwing Terminator,
stranded in a Space Hulk, is being chased by a horde of Genestealers...
Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of
Chaos. Made up of gigantic mangled asteroids, derelict ship wrecks and other
spatial debris, they sometimes grow to the size of a moon and often contain
treasured and ancient lost technologies. However, they are ripe with danger
including infestations of the lethal Genestealers.
Players take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most
feared Space Marine Companies: the Deathwing from the Dark Angels. Strap on your
Terminator armour and equip the emblematic weaponry of the Space Marines to
overcome the threats awaiting you in the Space Hulk. As a Librarian, you will
also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance
in battle grant you Fervor Points, to spend on 4 skill trees allowing you to
improve your abilities, unlock new powers, access powerful relics and
devastating new weapons.
