Space Hulk: Deathwing releases December 9!

With only one month left until release, the whole team is working non-stop to add the final layer of polish to our game and deliver the best possible experience to players. We now needs your support: Steam pre-order players are invited to join our upcoming Beta tests.

Starting next week, we will invite a limited number of pre-order players to join a closed-beta to help us gather the latest technical and gameplay feedback for the game.

Starting around November 20, ALL players who have pre-ordered Space Hulk: Deathwing on Steam will be able to get their first taste through a new beta.

You’ll be able to experience the game’s tutorial to learn the basics, before teaming up to complete a mission from the game’s campaign with up to 3 other players in co-op! These betas will be the perfect opportunity for us to gather the latest feedback from players, in order to offer the best possible gaming experience at launch.

In the meantime: Enter the Space Hulk and delve deep into its colossal environments to discover their place in the Warhammer 40,000 lore, in our latest trailer!

Each Space Hulk is an amalgamation of ancient ships and space debris, and Olethros is filled with lore from the 10,000 years since the dawn of the Imperium to the 41st Millennium.

You will be exploring Black Templar ships, troop transports, and even pirate vessels that were lost in the Warp and became part of the Space Hulk OIethros’ bowels. We made sure that every inch of the colossal ships, each corridor and each room, contains highly detailed designs, unique architectural styles, and references to Warhammer 40,000 history.

An incredible amount of care was also given to the enemies and their AI. The Genestealers have many variants with unique abilities and skills, combined with their AI utilizing pack tactics and ambushes that remain faithful to the lore.

As a Terminator Armour-clad member of the Deathwing, you have access to the most advanced weapons the Imperium has to offer. Available to you and your squad are the iconic Stormbolter and other famous Space Marine weapons and variants.

Don your Terminator power armor, take up your Storm Bolter, and bring glory to the Emperor in Space Hulk: Deathwing, when it launches December 9 on PC.

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

Here at BoLS, we’ve been keeping eye out on this game ever sense we saw the teaser-trailer from Gamescom. The game looks really, really good visually. And if they nailed the creepy atmosphere, “gun play” and Genestealer/Tyranid AI I’m pretty sure they are going to have a hit on their hands.

Now, some of you may have noticed that the release date did get pushed back from November to December 9th. I’m a little bummed because I was looking forward to playing the game this month. Turns out I’ll still be able to because if you pre-ordered the game you’ll have a shot at the Beta starting November 20th. It’s not going to be the full release, but it’s going to be a quick taste of what’s in store.

On the one hand, again, I’m bummed it’s not the full game. On the other, I’m okay with waiting a few more weeks to play this game in full – especially if those weeks are spent adding some polish and shine to an already amazing looking game. It would be a tragedy for them to release too early and have such an amazing looking game fall short due to bugs or other issues. Fingers crossed – we’ll all be blasting Xeno Scum before you know it!

 

I’m so ready for this game. Into the breach once again!

  • SilentPony

    I’m starting to find this whole thing suspicious. They go radio silent for a while, pre orders say a November release date, the game is getting almost no attention, traction or coverage and now the release date is pushed to December.

    I feel like we’ve seen this dance before…

    • Simon

      Yeah, the first paragraph is REALLY encouraging…

      “With only one month left until release, the whole team is working non-stop to add the final layer of polish to our game and deliver the best possible experience to players. We now needs your support: Steam pre-order players are invited to join our upcoming Beta tests.”

      • Eric Buchanan

        Is this sarcasm? In software, you are always working upto the release. Even if you have your RC complete, you are moving onto the first post release patch at that point.

        If it’s a month before your release and you are 100% complete, your schedule probably wasn’t very aggressive.

        Silent Pony, I’m not understanding the “Radio silence” thing, I’ve seen a good number of trailers, interviews, twitter posts, etc from the developers over the last month.

        If you mean they wouldn’t lock down on a date as “radio silence”, i think thats tilting at windmills a bit too much. They aren’t going to announce a date until they are confident they can hit it, they probably had a technical hurdle that has now been resolved.

    • rtheom

      Really we should be seeing A LOT more games doing this, pushing their release dates back. If they did, maybe we’d stop getting half finished garbage that needs a year’s worth of updates before it becomes playable. That being said, hopefully the month pushback is actually enough for them to really polish the game, like they said, and they’re not just trying to make non-functional code into functional garbage because we’ve also seen that a lot…

    • Parthis

      I long for the days where what you’ve described is pretty much how games were developed.

      The constant noise of game development is good for no one. The constant raging when dates move, the anger at bugs, the bitterness at silence is the reason most games come out unfinished and full of problems.

      No Man’s Sky, for example.

      You either need to be entirely open; Star Citizen. Or lock it down, get the work done, and present when it’s almost complete.

  • Commissar Molotov

    Hmmm…wonder when the console version will be available?

    • adamharry

      They don’t have a solid date for Console release but their website says “Coming to Consoles in 2017”

      • Commissar Molotov

        Thanks, Adam – looked it up on the website and it said “early 2017.” I’ve got a laptop with a crank on the side that I have to throw into a fire to recharge the battery, so I think I’d better wait for the console version!

        • Dumbcow1

          or build yourself a decent computer, so you can game how its meant to be played. not at 720p 30hz

          • Commissar Molotov

            …And then do it again in three years. And again two years after that.

            Yeah, no thanks.

  • Jake

    This game looks really good. Its just that the words should be in high gothic…and not english..makes it look like gang members have hijacked terminator plate..

  • PrehistoricUF0

    It’s so hard for me to get hyped about video games anymore. Been burned way too many times. As usual, the screens are pretty, but visuals are about the only things one can rest assured are going to be good in games.

    • jeff white

      the games themselves have changed little. the interface, everything is basically the same since i was a kid.

  • Red_Five_Standing_By

    Looks fun. I will enjoy playing this game.

  • Mike X

    Preordered this months ago, along with buying ‘Space Hulk’ and ‘Space Hulk: Ascension’ (a different developer). Now that I’ve played those extensively, it’s time to go first-person!

  • plasticvicar

    Hmm, wonder which Black Templar ship got stuck in the hulk? Then again I doubt anyone would know, last thing the Templars would want is more potential information on their actual massive numbers.

  • Jay Mort

    Sigh…
    Rat-a-tat-tat bolters…
    Space hulk with no blood angels…
    Blow-torches instead of flame throwers…
    Xenos scum 50 times stronger than they should be…
    Alas, I’ll still probably buy it. If you grade it on a curve it’ll at least be a B-.
