There’s something about “Space Hulk” that will probably never go out of style, no matter how often it’s explored in video games. The idea of insanely armored humans facing off against ravenous aliens in claustrophobic spaceships is cool enough, but when you add in the fact that it’s set in the “Warhammer 40,000″ universe and features the official Space Marines, you’ve got all kinds of potential for awesomeness.
Until now, said awesomeness has mostly been explored in the form of tactical games similar to the original “Space Hulk” tabletop game. But Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio are cooking up something different: a first-person shooter called “Space Hulk: Deathwing.”
Details are just beginning to emerge, and even the platform (or platforms) on which the game will see release is a mystery. What we do know is that you’ll step into the Terminator armor of the Deathwing branch of the Dark Angels. Along with the usual storm bolters, lightning claws and other ways to eliminate Genestealers, you’ll have access to the psychic powers of a Librarian, with four different skill trees to explore as you advance.
To properly set the tone, Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide released the teaser you can see below, and it definitely looks intense. GameSided will have more info on “Space Hulk: Deathwing” as it becomes available.l
