Space Hulk: Deathwing, a first-person shooter set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe, is looking pretty great in its first batch of screenshots.

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 by Streum On Studio, which previously developed E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy. As you can see in the screenshots, Unreal Engine 4 looks like a natural fit for the Space Marines’ bulky armor and the dark corridors of the Space Hulk where the game is set.

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 Deathwing Librarian, who leads a squad of Space Marine Terminators through the alien-infested Space Hulk. You’ll gain Fervor Points as you play, which you can then spend on four skill trees, allowing you to improve your abilities, unlock new powers, and access powerful relics and new weapons.

Publisher Focus Home Interactive has yet to announce a release date.
