If you’re a fan of XCOM-style turn-based tactics, but those silly little green men aren’t grimdark enough for you, Space Hulk: Tactics could fill that void. It’s an adaptation of the Space Hulk board game, albeit updated with new twists made possible through this medium we call videogames.
The frustratingly average Space Hulk: Deathwing is back in May with an Enhanced Edition. Coming as a free upgrade to PC owners, and a paid update on PS4, the Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enhanced Edition packs in an array of new features.
The Warhammer 40K gaming juggernaut steamrollers on this week with the arrival of Space Hulk Deathwing. It's basically Vermintide / Left 4 Dead in space, tasking you and up to three squad mates to lay waste to thousands upon thousands of genestealers all out for your blood, aboard a derelict space vessel. Cramming all those enemies on screen means your graphics card is going to need to pack a punch though, as we found out with our Space Hulk Deathwing benchmark.
Space Hulk Deathwing runs pretty fantastically on PC but there’s one crucial thing holding it back - the frame rate in Space Hulk Deathwing is capped at 62 FPS. Before you go hunting down the config file in your game installation, or rifle through your Documents, it’s a little bit more fiddly than that. Here’s exactly how you can unlock Space Hulk: Deathwing’s frame rate cap.
Co-operative first-person shooter dungeon crawling on gigantic, alien infested spaceships? Don’t mind if I do.

Good morning our petit croissants! Happy Bonfire … day? We thought, given your likely hangovers from Friday festivities, we’d treat you to a trailer to relax in bed with whilst nurturing yourself with caffeine. Who wants to be bogged down with reading and news just yet? We can smell the fry ups already. This morning's trailer that’s caught our eye recently is that of yesterday’s Space Hulk: Deathwing - Enter the Space Hulk trailer, building the hype for Space Hulk: Deathwing’s release on December the 9th.
Anything that looks a bit like Star Wars: Republic Commando is a winner in my book, particularly when it's paired up with full four-player co-op. Which is why I've got a keen eye on Streum On's Space Hulk: Deathwing, an action-packed, squad shooter version of the classic Warhammer 40K tabletop game. As Space Marine Librarians (cooler than they sound), players must explore giant wrecked starships floating through the depths of space, fending off a Genestealer invasion in the process. It all looks rather swanky, but naturally enough you'll need a PC which can handle it. Find out just what with the official minimum system requirements for Space Hulk Deathwing.
Okay, okay, I know you’re probably all sick to death of Games Workshop games by now, but bear with me because Space Hulk: Deathwing’s Gamescom trailer really does show what Warhammer 40K is all about. An increasingly strident narrator booms out over one hell of a spectacle as an army of Tyranids lay siege to a waiting band of Space Marine Terminators. The resultant clash is one glorious pyrotechnic explosion.
Everyone and his dog seems to be making a Warhammer game these days but, on the basis of the first gameplay trailer, Space Hulk Deathwing could well be one to stand out from the crowd. A first-person squad-based shooter, Space Hulk Deathwing is giving me some serious Star Wars: Republic Commando vibes, with you and your Space Marine buddies dropped into various derelict ships floating in space and tasked with clearing them out.
Some thrilling new screens have emerged of Space Hulk: Deathwing from Streum On and Cyanide Studios. The screens come alongside the news the game will feature a full single-player campaign alongside the already announced class-based co-operative play on offer.
Warhammer 40K games seem to be a two-a-penny nowadays, but Space Hulk: Deathwing looks to be highest-budget attempt yet at recreating Games Workshop’s sci-fi universe. The latest Rise of the Terminators trailer gives us a look at the claustrophobic environments where the Space Marines will be fending off the unrelenting Genestealers.
