Space Hulk: Deathwing's Solo Campaign Revealed with 17 Minutes of Gameplay

Press Release   •   Nov 18, 2016 12:41 GMT

Space Hulk: Deathwing, the upcoming first-person shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, features a solo campaign written in collaboration with Black Library author and Dark Angels specialist, Gav Thorpe, as well as cooperative multiplayer. With only one month left until release, you can now watch 17 minutes of uncut gameplay from the solo campaign. Clocking at around 15 hours of gameplay in normal difficulty mode – more when playing on harder difficulty and if players take time to explore, finding hidden relics on the way - the campaign boasts huge environments, with lots of optional areas and secret rooms to discover.

In the solo campaign you play as a Librarian of the Dark Angels' 1st Company, the Deathwing, taking on swarms of Genestealer in the Space Hulk Olethros with Storm Bolter and Force Sword in hand. The Librarian is a Psyker, granting him access to powerful psychic abilities such as chain lighting, a powerful lightning bolt, which arcs between multiple enemies; and Shockwave, which blasts enemies back from you. You will need to utilize the full armory of the Deathwing company, your powerful psychic abilities, as well as the squad members under your command to fend off the xenos threat.

The Genestealers adapt their behaviour, based on their numbers, their type, and your actions. Commanding your teammates to cover you, block doors to prevent genestealers from flanking you, heal you, or hold a key position, is vital to survival in the depths of the Space Hulk. By playing the campaign you also unlock new weaponry for use by you and your squadmates, along with gaining experience to spend on three skill trees to unlock powerful new abilities.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is available for download on PC on December 9 before landing on consoles in early 2017. Pre-purchasing through Steam will gain you access to the pre-order beta, beginning end of November.

Pre-order now on Steam and get access to the pre-order Beta, 15% off and one in-game weapon - the Lost Mace of Corswain.

About Space Hulk: Deathwing

The Game

Space Hulk - Deathwing is a First-Person Shooter experience based on Games Workshop's classic Space Hulk boardgame set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. Space Hulk: Deathwing was developed on Unreal Engine 4, and offers you and up to three of your friends the chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk. You also gain skills, new abilities, and new equipment as you earn experience during missions.

Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos. Made up of gigantic, mangled asteroids, ship wrecks, and other stellar debris, they can grow to the size of a moon, and often contain treasured and ancient lost technologies. They are often also infested with broods of the lethal Genestealer.

In the game you take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most feared Space Marine forces: the Deathwing of the Dark Angels Chapter.

As a Librarian, you can also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance in battle grant you Fervor Points to spend on 3 skill trees, allowing you to improve your abilities and unlock new powers.

Don your Terminator armour and arm yourself with the iconic weaponry of the Space Marines and face the threats that await you in the Space Hulk.
