Game Workshop really has a reputation for just handing out licenses for their games. Want to make a terribly broken online shooter? Great! How about a mediocre Space Marine game? Not a problem. Well, now there is yet another addition to the massive Warhammer 40K universe. The only difference is this game actually looks really good. As soon as I saw the trailer for Space Hulk: Deathwing my brain exploded.
Space Hulk: Deathwing, for the Games Workshop newcomer is based on the widely popular and incredibly fun tabletop game Spacehulk. Deathwing isn’t due out until early December but from the trailers so far, it looks like a mix between Left 4 Dead and Dead Space. You take control of the Dark Angels Deathwing Terminators on a mission to rescue a Librarian trapped in the great space church. I honestly don’t think that’s right but we’re going with it. What I do know is Space Hulk: Deathwing looks like a really pretty version of shoot the bad guy.
The biggest upside as a Warhammer fan is that Deathwing really got the visuals down. I am not 100% sold on the Gene Stealers, but it still looks amazing. Expect a full review after the game is released in December.
