Here’s Your First Look at Space Hulk: Deathwing Gameplay


Focus Home Interactive released the very first gameplay video of Space Hulk: Deathwing, the Unreal Engine 4 powered FPS set in the Warhammer 40K universe.

This is an adaptation of the Space Hulk board game, in development at Streum on Studio, the folks behind E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy.

Infiltrate and explore the Space Hulk "Olethros", a derelict collection of space ship and debris filled with hidden dangers and relics. As a Librarian, players can take AI squadmates or have fellow players join them in their investigation into the mystery of Olethros, co-written by renowned Dark Angels writer Gavin Thorpe.

Infesting the Space Hulk are ferocious Genestealers who utilise ambushes, swarming and tactical retreats in order to slowly tear down the player's Terminator armour. Damage is localised, and taking too many hits in certain areas will cause your armour to malfunction. To stop the horde, you'll have access to a wide assortment of weapons, skills, and powers taken directly from Warhammer 40,000 lore to customize your squad of Dark Angel Terminators.

Space Hulk: Deathwing will have certain RPG elements and it will focus on cooperative gameplay, either with the help of the AI or human players. The final version has been confirmed to feature nine levels and seven different ships, with an estimated campaign duration of about 10 to 15 gameplay hours.

The game will launch later this year, first on PC and then on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
