Space Hulk- Deathwing... New Screenshots


Space Hulk- Deathwing is due to be released sometime this year. It's a first person shooter that looks like it is really shaping up to be a cool game. The new screenshots from this morning are very nice, and the expanse of the rooms looks amazing.

The Game
Space Hulk® - Deathwing™, developed by Streum On Studio on Unreal Engine 4, is a First-Person Shooter experience of Games Workshop's classic Space Hulk boardgame set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. 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.

Space Hulk 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 Genestealer.

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 5 skill trees allowing you to improve your abilities, unlock new powers, access powerful relics and devastating new weapons.

Key Features
 -Take on the role of a Space Marine Terminator from the most secret and feared company : The Deathwing.

-Plunge into the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk and experience a desperate battle against the Genestealers.

    2. I'm really hoping for a "Dead Space" style sound palette for this game, I don't care if space marines "know no fear", I want to play this game in the dark on my own and Know Fear! I want this game to be so scary its puts people off from playing it with its intensity. That is what a space hulk game should be like, not a kiddy pew pew pew fest. Waiting with baited breath.......

    5. Except that Space Hulks never incite fear in Marines. That's why Marines are sent into them.

    6. It will be awesome if we can play a Commissar or Imperial Guardsman in a Space Hulk. Now that would be absolutely terrifying!

      Granted, you'll need the luck and skill of Ciaphas Cain, but hey, if he can do it in The Emperor's Finest despite his supposed cowardly personality, why can't we? :)

    7. Of course adeptus astartes know no fear, but we are not space marines. We are people who want to play space marines in awesome video game! it's all about immersion, the game needs to feel claustrophobic. You need to feel the menace and dread. the game has to feel grim dark all the way!

    8. +1 Michael, you hit the nail on the head.

      @McDoogle, of course Spess Mehreens doesn't afraid of anything! we know that, point is that as humans WE can feel fear and tension and that is what could be the difference between this game being incredible or Meh.

    9. Terminators make tactical withdrawals when they fail morale checks, ready to fight again. Deathwing Terminators know no fear, refuse to fall back, and get slaughtered. Is that why the Adeptus Mechanicus likes the Deathwing to fetch their missing toys?

  2. A little off topic, but everything except 3 units disappeared from the 40K tab of the GW website.

    Both mobile and desktop and in all countries I can understand the language of.

    1. I'm getting 4 things but your right. Bit weird.
      This must mean a major update is comming to everything else! Octagonal bases and true scale.
      Kidding. Little but worried.

    2. Or its a repackaging/faction realignment.

  4. Game looks awesome, kinda bummed its DA though; Im a huge NL fan so I'm duty bound to hate DA.
    I wonder if Librarians will be as crazy powerful as they are in the board game/pc adaptation.

    1. It makes sense for it to be DA though as Deathwing were born from the Space Hulk expansion of the same name, before Deathwing all DA Terminators were black. Perhaps the Batwing helmet Brigade can make an appearance further down the track? WD had rules for Chaos Terminators and Harlequins back in the day.

    2. (Looks up from painting Deathwing models)

      I knew there was another reason we don't always get along... :-P

  5. After 10,000 years the lost brothers return :p^^

    1. Which is absolutely bizarre, because the Space Wolves 13th Great Company already returned during the Eye of Terror campaign. Unless we're talking about an entire missing successor chapter? Wolf Brothers maybe? We need some more werewolves to keep those Blood Angel vampires in line! :-P

  6. Odd, in the E3 interview with Angry Joe the dev said that it's a 5-man co-op multi-player (as it should be for a squad) and there's no L4D-style chance to play as a 'Stealer.


    Gotta say, well looking forward to this...there's so much that can go wrong though and as a pur(strain)ist I'm not 100% on that massive Broodlord...

    1. I think it does have Co-op but if your playing solo then you are always the Librarian. You still have access to all the heavy guns though as they are unlockable.

    2. Maybe that's the Patriarch Mauler, wishful thinking here but it's way too massive to be a broodlord, I was just thinking, if you took the old model on the throne and scaled the length of its limbs up to match the chunkiness of the head and torso then it would be almost that size. Not exactly correct I know if you look at the artwork of Two Heads talking and the Patriarch's mental battle it's only a bit taller and fat, but if you did keep the torso/head diameter/size and scaled the limbs to make a lean stealer, it wouldn't be so far off. So those marines don't need to worry about the size of that stealer, they are about to be slain by mind bullets, Haha!

    3. D, I'm not sure that I want to be a Librarian all the time! Seems the legit way to provide the player with the most options, tho. Hmmm....

      DJ, a fellow of similar age and memory! R.I.P. Two Heads Talking, Lame Bear & Weasel-Fierce. :( I've got a pic of my old running Patriarch in a line-up with both Broodlords & a Hive Tyrant and, alas, they have not aged well at all :/

    4. Well from the latest trailers the Broodlords (yes there's lots of them) seem to have been scaled down a bit (more like Spawn of Cryptus size at most now)

      Only enemies we've seen so far are regular stealers, some with toxin sacs and talons and possibly 2 types of Broodlord (one seems a bit smaller and more upright)

    5. That old Patriarch needs to get on the treadmill more often!

      Delete
    6. Weasel-Fierce! Awesome. Don't forget Running Turtle, he killed a rat!

  7. The screen shots look amazing and the fact that the space hulk already looks like a mechanicum ship in screenshot two, but in screen shot 1 whats up with the Black Templar Church, doesn't look good for them.....

    1. It's an abandoned/derelict cruiser or part of a hulk, if I remember rightly :]
