Latest Space Hulk Deathwing Trailer Is A Thrilling, Exciting Peek Into The Upcoming Warhammer Adaptation [VIDEO]
Streum On, the studio behind the long gestating Warhammer adaptation Space Hulk: Deathwing, has gotten another new trailer, this one a thrumming, bombastic look at the environments and the many horrors that await you on the derelict ship.
Deathwing is an upcoming First Person Shooter - a break from the traditional turn-based strategy play of the Warhammer series. The game puts you right in the middle of a desperate conflict between the famed Deathwing contingent of Imperial space marines and the ravenous Genestealers who are aboard the ship. Players assume control of one of team's Librarians, and as such is granted access to the various Psyker (psychic) abilities that such characters can wield.
All of this brought to beautiful life via the Unreal Engine 4.
Breaking with the recent video game trailer trend of playing an acoustic cover of some famous song, the new Space Hulk: Deathwing trailer - titled Rise of the Terminators - is set to the catchy rhythm of the Swiss band Kadebostany and their 2013 single "Walking with a Ghost". Thanks, now there's another band to listen to. Watch the trailer below.
No release date has been set for Space Hulk: Deathwing as of this time. Deathwing joins the long, long list of Warhammer adaptations that are either upcoming or currently released.
Players wishing to venture down a hulk can explore Space Hulk: Ascension Edition for Steam, or if gothic horror is more your thing, you can test drive Mordheim: City of the Damned, now in Early Access. We got our own paws on the recent Armageddon adaptation. Mobile gamers can partake in Space Wolf, Carnage and the great Warhammer Quest - now out on PC, as well.
Or you can get yourself psyched for Warhammer: Regicide, the upcoming 'chess-like' battler, the wonderfully titled Vermintide and the recently announced Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, which looks like the prettiest one of all.
Needless to say, it is a good time to be a Warhammer fan.
