What do we all love? FREE content, thats what! It is quickly becoming the new alternative to paid DLC. However, the smarter ones amongst you will realise that Space Hulk: Deathwing is not even out yet on Xbox. However, the game, by developer Streumon Studio, is slated for a console release in Q4 2017 and all content released up to then on Steam, including Return to Olethros, will be included in the games “Enhanced Edition” launch on console.
Space Hulk: Deathwing is a First-Person Shooter experience of Games Workshop’s classic Space Hulk boardgame, set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. Space Hulk: Deathwing offers players the chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk, as they will gain skills, new abilities and new equipment thanks to experience earned during perilous missions. Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos. Made up of gigantic mangled asteroids, derelict ship wrecks and other spatial debris, they sometimes grow to the size of a moon and often contain treasured and ancient lost technologies. However, they are ripe with danger including infestations of the lethal Genestealers. Players take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most feared Space Marine Companies: the Deathwing from the Dark Angels. Strap on your Terminator armour and equip the emblematic weaponry of the Space Marines to overcome the threats awaiting you in the Space Hulk. As a Librarian, you will also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance in battle grant you Fervor Points, to spend on 4 skill trees allowing you to improve your abilities, unlock new powers, access powerful relics and devastating new weapons.
The Return to Olethros update brings the well-received Special Missions mode to every Chapter in the game, in both solo and multiplayer. This mode generates randomised objectives and enemy spawns, bringing a new level of uncertainty and replayability for even the most seasoned squads of Space Hulk veterans.
