Space Hulk: Deathwing Teaser Trailer

Holy fucking shit!

I couldn’t care less what this game is about – this trailer looks immense. And finally gives tell to why Dark Angels were the first army I properly collected as a young hobbyist.

However, I’ve been a good boy and looked into it and oh my poor pants. Space Hulk: Deathwing will be a first person shooter available on the XBox One.

I’ll be watching this one very closely because it has the potential to be incredible. Or a miserable pile of shit like all the other Space Hulk shooters that have preceded it.

Space Hulk Gameplay

So here’s a video of some game play (plus an interview) from Feat the Flames, of Space Hulk from Full Control. Since the video from March the graphics have been tidied up loads, the light sourcing and over environments look ace and the terminators walk now. And the shoulder cam is extremely cool. I think there’s still a little work to be done mind. Watching the video it kinda looks like each action performed by the terminators are independent of each other rather than a fluid series of motions. Otherwise, the game is shaping up quite nicely.

Could this be the first good Space Hulk video game?

Yes, that’s right; yet another shit looking Space Hulk video game. I seem to remember the first one coming out back when I had a Commodore 64. It was gritty, intense and scary. Everything since has been an unmitigated dirge of toss that focussed far too much on copying the board game into a first person format rather than making a game based on Space Hulk. There is nothing fun about playing a game in which your storm bolter jams every third shot. This time round it’s Full Control’s turn. A Danish company that seems to have produced a raft of crap looking games. Which makes me ask this question: is the licensing team at Games Workshop fucking high?

Here’s the announcement trailer…
