August 18, 2016 – Powered by Unreal 4, Space Hulk: Deathwing is a first person shooter with tactical elements set in Games Workshop’s gritty Warhammer 40k Universe. In today’s Gamescom trailer, witness the Deathwing squad inspired by the Battle Hymn of Vengeance (written by renowned 40k author Gav Thorpe), hold a last stand against a swarm of insurmountable Genestealers.
Play in coop with friends in a Dark Angels Terminator squad of the elite Deathwing, dispatched to eradicate the Genestealer threat on Space Hulk Olethros, a cluster of derelict ships and debris collected over years of war. Playable in single or multiplayer, lead your squad through xeno-infested ships and debris as you search for the source of ominous psychic disturbances.
Your Terminator and your squad can be customized – skills can be learned and levelled up, and you can choose a wide variety of ranged and melee weapons to bring in to the Space Hulk. During battle, command your team to hold choke points, hack into doors, and cover your advance. Nothing is as it seems in Space Hulk Olethros, and with a story co-written by acclaimed Dark Angels writer Gavin Thorpe, you can be sure that easter eggs are hidden around every corner.
Don the Terminator power armor and bring glory to the Emperor in Space Hulk: Deathwing when the game launches in November 2016 on PC!
