Space Hulk: The Death of Beta Wings Part 2

Posted on 02 Dec 2016 by

Right on the heels of the open Beta, which ended a scant three days ago, Focus are treating us to another thirteen minutes of unedited, unscripted gameplay from Space Hulk: Deathwing. Now precisely one week from release, and constantly driving me crazy…because it’s still a week from release.

You know, part of me really didn’t want to watch this, because the anticipation is already driving me up the wall. All of me watched it because…you see where this is going. It’s unclear precisely which part of the campaign the above video takes place during, but I would suspect it’s relatively early on. Though it does show a decidedly different type of Genestealer than we’ve seen thus far. They actually look rather like bleached, hairless sloths with Cthulhu heads. They also appear to have some Terminator DNA, as the chief objective, at this point, has become to massacre the whole lot of them so as to purify the honor of the now literally defiled Deathwing lineage.

Bring it on bitches!

Official Press Release

Space Hulk: Deathwing – end of the technical beta and 13 minutes of uncut gameplay

Space Hulk: Deathwing, the upcoming first-person shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, just ended its Technical Beta. Tens of thousands of players got their hands on the multiplayer co-op mode of the game – in the span of a few days, several millions of Genestealers were purged though relentless assaults led by players who were enthralled by spectacular co-op gameplay served in an immersive rendering of this much-loved setting.

The Beta has helped settle several gameplay adjustments and technical tweaks that the development team has already started to tackle tirelessly. Feedback from the community and players has proven invaluable for the teams at Streum On studio and Focus Home Interactive, who are now putting all their efforts into offering the best possible experience for players when the game releases.

To make the wait until release more bearable, here are 13 minutes of uncut gameplay footage from the single-player campaign. A new Xenos threat has risen from the depths of the Space Hulk. Your Deathwing squad must purge this newly discovered strain, which resembles the Ymgarl Genestealers. These creatures are even more cunning, tough and lethal than regular Genestealers, and their presence on the Space Hulk Olethros remains a mystery. The Psygate, a psychic bridgehead established by the Librarian, enables the Librarian to change equipment and Psychic powers during missions. This allows them adapt to various encounters while exploring the Space Hulk. Squad mates’ loadouts can be also be swapped using the same ability. For example, equipping them with shields and war hammers will transform your squad into a particularly strong and hard hitting force. But, of course, with this setup, your companions won’t be able to deal damage from a distance or heal teammates.

Pre-order now on Steam to get 15% off and one in-game weapon – the Lost Mace of Corswain. Space Hulk: Deathwing is available for download on PC, December 9 before landing on consoles in 2017.
