New 'Space Hulk: Deathwing' Trailer Shows Off Unreal Engine 4

A brand new teaser trailer has been released for Warhammer 40k FPS Space Hulk: Deathwing showing off the impressive new Unreal 4 Engine.

This will be the first AAA licensed Warhammer title since the rights were bought by SEGA from the now defunct THQ, who left their premises so abruptly that they left some pretty sweet merchandise behind, check it out here!

A Deathwing Terminator Squad from the Dark Angels Chapter

The Trailer involves a squad of Terminator Space Marines facing off against a horde of Xenomorph-like Tyranids, with an overlay at the start ensuring that all footage seen has been actually captured ‘In-Game’ with Unreal Engine 4. This is a rare sight indeed considering the amount of pre-rendered faux pas moments that have made a new generation of gamers considerably more hesitant and less trusting when it comes to trailers, looking at you Watch_Dogs.

Players 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 points, to spend on 4 skill trees allowing you to improve your abilities, unlock new powers, access powerful relics and devastating new weapons. – Focus Home Interactive

Space Hulk: Deathwing is being made by French developers StreumOn Studio who released their first and only game, Cyberbunk themed FPS E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy back in 2011 which received extremely mixed reviews across the board. Not to fret though, the production is also being overseen by Focus Home Interactive who are no stranger to the Games Workshop universe having released 2 entries into the Blood Bowl fictional sports franchise.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is set to land on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC but there is no confirmed date for release so far. As avid Warhammer universe fanatics we will keep everyone up to date as soon as there are any further developments with the game, but this trailer has certainly been enough to wet our appetite for the return of the original badass power armor, All Hail The Emperor!
