Focus Home Interactive has announced that its upcoming first-person shooter, Space Hulk: Deathwing, will land on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One sometime “early 2017.” Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, the game was first unveiled in 2014 and was supposed to release for consoles in 2015. It was later pushed to 2016 and will now hopefully release next year.
You can check out a new trailer above, and in case you missed it, here’s what the game is all about:
Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos. Made up of gigantic mangled asteroids, derelict ship wrecks, and other spatial debris, they sometimes grow to the size of a moon and often contain treasured and ancient lost technologies. However, they are ripe with danger including infestations of the lethal Genestealers.
You’ll take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most feared Space Marine Companies: the Deathwing from the Dark Angels. Strap on your Terminator armor and equip the emblematic weaponry of the Space Marines to overcome the threats awaiting you in the Space Hulk. As a Librarian, you will also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance in battle grant you Fervor Points, to spend on 4 skill trees allowing you to improve your abilities, unlock new powers, access powerful relics, and devastating new weapons.
The PC version will be out this December. While you’re waiting, you can check out our E3 2016 preview here.
