Space Hulk: Deathwing is an upcoming first-person-shooter from Streum On Studio, which promises to put players into the huge Terminator power-armor of a Dark Angels Librarian.
The 17-minute chunk of gameplay footage released this week shows the player delving into the cramped and creaking corridors of a Space Hulk, teeming with Genestealers and various other enemies from Warhammer 40k lore.
This early gameplay footage looks great, though it’s not without its faults. The ambient chatter from the player character and his pair of squadmates is repetitive and limited, and the locations shown in the trailer don’t show much variety, though that does make sense in fiction if the entire game is set on the remains of a destroyed and infested starship.
Fans of the series will recognize the iconic armor and weapons available to the player, as well as a brace of Psyker powers employed by the Librarian.
