Streum On Studio has announced that it will be bringing Space Hulk: Deathwing, an Unreal Engine 4-powered first-person shooter, to PlayStation 4 in 2015.
The game is based on Games Workshop’s Space Hulk board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It offers players a chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk.
“Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos,” lead level designer Pierrick Le Nestour explained. “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 will step into the shoes of a Space Marine from one of the most feared Space Marine Companies: the Deathwing from the Dark Angels.
“Strap on your Terminator armor and equip the emblematic weaponry of the Space Marines to overcome the threats awaiting you in the Space Hulk,” Nestour added. “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.”
Space Hulk: Deathwing will be available on PlayStation 4 in 2015. There’s no word on an Xbox One release at this moment.
