En bref, ambiance plutôt réussie dans ce premier screenshot du futur FPS Deathwing inspiré de Space Hulk, en chantier chez Cyanide, Streum On Studio et Focus. Cet aperçu ci-dessus est en moyenne résolution mais gageons qu’on en verra plus d’ici quelques temps. Vivement 2015 ! Dans un registre voisin, sachez que l’adaptation de la version plateau a reçu une mise à jour gratuite ajoutant un mode coop (permettant des parties jusqu’à 3 contre 1), et qu’un DLC ajoutant lui une campagne supplémentaire de cinq scénarios vient tout juste de sortir : Harbinger of Torment.
Au passage notez aussi que la version Mac est en promo à -50% sur iTunes semble-t-il jusqu’au 27 mai, soit 4.99 € au lieu de 8.99. Et que la version sur Steam est bradé à -75 % jusqu’au 24 mai prochain.

Copenhagen, Denmark – May 20, 2014 – Danish independent studio Full Control today announced that Space Hulk now includes cooperative play mode, as part of the latest free game patch that also has a number of updates and bug fixes. The patch also coincides with the new campaign ‘Harbinger of Torment’ which is now available for PC, Mac and Linux. Space Hulk is the digital adaptation of the classic Games Workshop board-game, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, and is available on PC, Mac, Linux and iPad,
“We are excited to release the new co-op mode in Space Hulk. It’s been in development for several months now, as we made a complete overhaul of the multiplayer mode to make it a seamless experience so players can easily jump into a co-op game”, said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control. “In honor of launching co-op we are also releasing a new five-mission campaign, ‘Harbinger of Torment’, that is now available to Windows, Mac and Linux players”.
Players can now challenge friends, in up to 4-player co-op battles where three gamers each control a squad of terminators and one player controls the Genestealers. To support co-op gameplay, Full Control has given multiplayer a complete overhaul and is introducing a lobby system where players can see other gamers who are online and ready to play. The new co-op functionality is free with Space Hulk, so all players need to do is log in, visit the new lobby and play.
About the Harbinger of Torment Campaign
As the Space Hulk, the Harbinger of Torment, emerged from the warp it was discovered to be on a collision course with the planet Baal. Several attempts were made to change course, but all failed. A team of the Imperium’s finest warriors is sent to the Harbinger of Torment to try and reverse the engines or stop them altogether. Failure is not an option. Harbinger of Torment has been specially designed for 4 player co-op and is now available for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam.
You can purchase Harbinger of Torment on Steam for $4,99/€4.99/£3.99
About Space Hulk
Space Hulk is a 3D digital turn based strategy game that recreates the classic claustrophobic board game experience for single player and multiplayer cross-platform play between PC, Mac and iOS. Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of an ancient vessel lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Based on the “Sin of Damnation” campaign from the 3rd edition board game, Space Hulk includes a robust 12-mission single-player campaign. Recreating the tense battles of the board game, multiplayer mode allows players to go head-to-head with one player controlling the Space Marines and their opponent, the Genestealers, in the ultimate fight for domination. Cross platform functionality in multiplayer mode allows players to compete against friends whether they play on PC, Mac, Linux or iPad.
