After keeping their cards close to their chest for so long (save for one glorious teaser) Focus Home Interactive have finally revealed images of their upcoming SPACE HULK: DEATHWING first-person-shooter.
Depicting the Dark Angels chapter and Tyranid Genestealers in action, these promotional shots depict surprisingly spacy areas for the two sides to combat one another. The environments themselves resemble a suitably dark mixture of gothic and industrial elements as found in many previous titles. If nothing else, it at least indicates that the developers are aware of the atmosphere and style of the universe.
Set to use the Unreal 4 Engine, the game is a major breakaway from the traditional turn based format the series has followed up to now. Other significant changes which have been announced are the potential presence of cultists and a gradual progression system within the game, and these screenshots have only revealed further interesting details.
The fourth image (below) released by the company features a background terminator carrying a plasma cannon, a heavy weapon never previously carried by such squads. What’s more is that the Librarian leading the group bears the stylised “I” of the Inquisition about the midsection of his armour. Perhaps this is some important hint which suggests the Ordos’ involvement in the plot of the game.
Expect more on this as further information is revealed.
