Space Hulk: Deathwing Available Today on PC #SpaceHulkDeathwing #PCMasterRace


Focus Home Interactive sends along word that Space Hulk: Deathwing is now available on Steam.

Quote:
Space Hulk: Deathwing, the FPS from Streum On Studio set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, releases today at 10 a.m. PST on PC! The time has come: Under the command of their Librarian, the 1st Company of the Dark Angels prepares to board the gigantic, Genestealer-infested Space Hulk that has been deposited in Imperial space by the uncaring tides of the Warp. Watch the game's Launch Trailer and get a glimpse of the Genestealer swarms you will have to face when you start exploring the Space Hulk today!

Space Hulk: Deathwing is a first-person shooter based on Games Workshop's classic board game Space Hulk set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. Developed in Unreal Engine 4, the game tasks you―in an extensive solo campaign co-written by Black Library author and Dark Angels specialist Gav Thorpe, or a challenging co-op mode up to 4 players―with facing the Genestealer swarms in the depths of a gigantic amalgamation of interstellar debris and wrecked spacecraft known as a Space Hulk. Unlock and equip yourself with the most powerful weaponry available to the Imperium, master destructive Psyker powers, and command your squad mates in battle to defeat the Xenos threat.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is available today at 10 a.m. PST on PC. The game will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017.

Keep us posted how it is. I'm really curious to see what you think. I got Vermintide at launch and was SUPER disappointed with that one. I think Space Hulk looks great, but have heard/read that there's performance issues and that the gameplay can be a bit dull at times. I'm sure the devs are working on performance, and the gameplay to me looked fun.

I have this one and will likely give it an hour or so to see if they fixed some of the stuff from beta. From what I am hearing however they have not.

If this fails to be at least as intense as the board game, then they completely blew what would have otherwise been a great opportunity to make an amazing game.

To be fair, the board game is actually extremely friggin' intense. I've never been quite as frantic - if not panics - as I was when I had a genestealer barreling down a tight corridor toward one of my Space Marines as shot after shot missed. I finally killed the bastard when he was one square away from getting into attacking range.

I love Space Hulk to death. It was one of the best board game purchases I've ever made.

Sounds like a blast. Is this it?

Games Workshop just recently re-released Space Hulk via their shop here, but it does seem to be the same version.

They are releasing a lot of board games like Space Hulk. I just bought the burning of prospero, and I'm hoping to get deathwatchverkill; that looks like a ton of fun.
