With Space Hulk: Deathwing, Streum On Studio and Focus Home Interactive are looking to deliver a close-quarters and against-all-odds type of combat experience in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. This Unreal Engine 4 title has a team of Terminator soldiers attempting to purge a Space Hulk of the Xenos infestation, all the while trying to find the source of where this mysterious adversary came from. In the newest gameplay trailer, we see a selection of killing tools at our disposal.
The first of these is the Storm Bolter, a standard issue weapon for the Terminator. It’ll do for grunt work, but the Redemption variant can kick things up a notch in cases the Bolter isn’t strong enough.. The Thunder Hammer is for cases when the Terminator wants to send a close-up and direct message to the scourge. The Assault Cannon is a piece of killing machinery that looks like it can get the job done in a pinch. You have no idea what’s hanging out in the dark depths of this spaceship, and you can easily get jumped by a horde of scary creatures at any given moment. When it seems too overwhelming, whipping out a heavy-hitting Plasma Cannon to level the playing field, followed by a Heavy Flamer to clean up the enemy mess seems like the best way to go.
Speaking of weapons, if you’re the pre-ordering type of gamer – you’ll get The Lost Mace of Corswain to use in-game.
