Space Hulk: Deathwing, a first-person shooter set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe, is set to release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015, developer Streum On Studio has announced.

Based on Games Workshop’s classic Space Hulk boardgame (which recently got its own video game), Space Hulk: Deathwing is being built on the Unreal Engine 4, and it’s looking pretty good so far, as you can see in the newly released “Summer Trailer” above.

In Warhammer 40,000 fiction, a Space Hulk is a huge collection of wrecked ships, asteroids, and other debris fused together into one enormous body floating in space. In the game, you’ll assume the role of a Deathwing Librarian, who leads a squad of Space Marine Terminators through the alien-infested Space Hulk. Streum On Studio, which previously developed the cyberpunk first-person role playing game E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy, explains that in Space Hulk: Deathwing players will battle against aliens in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk as they gain skills, new abilities, and new equipment from experience earned during missions.

Streum On Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive have yet to announce a specific release date.
