    Space Hulk: Deathwing (no not that turned base one)

    http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2014...g-screenshots/

    Games Workshop are spaffing Warhammer 40,000 licenses all over the place lately, with predictably mixed-but-a-bit-bleh results. However, one did land at Streum On Studio to make first-person shooter Space Hulk: Deathwing. Yes, the folks who made E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. Their FPS-RPG debut was awfully wonky yet jolly ambitious, and quite endearing because of that. It’s nice to know that one of the oodles of 40K games should be, at the very least, interesting.

    The first ‘screenshots’ arrived in our inbox this morning, and while they’re clearly staged they do have plenty of pretty Space Marine Terminator armour to ogle.


    Deathwing is another FPS-RPG, with levelling up and skill points and skill trees and all that as your Terminator squad stomp around a colossal derelict space ship squashing Tyranids. The player character is a Librarian from the Dark Angels’ Deathwing company, which in 40K terms means you’re a space-wizard. An eight-foot space-wizard with a honking great gun, which is something I’m always willing to be.

    E.Y.E danced around 40K imagery with its warrior monks in chunky cyberarmour stomping around dystopian industrial cityscapes, but Streum On have really gone to town on Space Hulk. The ornate detailing on power armour, banners, and statues is quite something. I visited Saint Bavo Cathedral in Belgium this weekend and was appalled to realise that Gothic stylings now mostly remind me of 40K. Anyway, have a gander
    looks shiny:

    Hmmm this could be pretty neat. EYE was rather fun despite its flaws.

    E.Y.E was special. Mostly in a good way.

    EYE was great but took a lot of getting used to. Do want.

    It's going to be released on PS4 and Xbone so you can start raging now about how nobody puts in the effort to port things properly for PC.

    Spacehulk games have a tradition of not being for the PC. The very first one didn't have a quit option...

    I'll honestly be shocked if its a good PC port because history show us that spacehulk games are always terrible ports. Having said that, I really really hope its done well because I spent many an hour playing space hulk when I was a kid. (Thats right boys, im a real geek)

    Love the soundtrack, and I sure hope the animation style (movement) follows through in the game because those Just feel like terminators should.

    And having an image that does not cause Autism attacks even more so.

    If there was ever a perfect studio to do a 40K game, it would be Streum.
