A Space Hulk: Deathwing has been released, showing the game's heroic Dark Angels knocking the crap out of a horde of alien genestealers.for developer Streum On's Warhammer 40,000 shooter
The Unreal Engine 4 is doing some stellar work on those bolters and suits of Space Marine power armour.
Deathwing casts you as a Dark Angels Librarian (think awesomely powerful psychic warfare rather than checking out books and shushing people) tasked with clearing out a space hulk, the corpse of a colossal ship lost in space that's been taken over by the seriously unpleasant genestealer Tyranids. From the video's blurb:
"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."
I caught a few minutes of very early, like embryonic gameplay from the 40k title . Almost impossible to make any judgement calls about quality at this point, but it was at least clear that the studio behind Deathwing are hardcore Warhammer fans.
Space Hulk: Deathwing is coming to PC in 2015.
