Publisher Focus Home Interactive has released a new trailer for the upcoming first person shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk: Deathwing.

The game is being developed for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC using Unreal Engine 4. We haven't seen or heard much details about the game so far, but as you can see in the trailer above, which Focus Home Interactive tells us is all in-engine, it's probably the best looking depiction of the Warhammer 40,000 universe we've seen in a video game yet.

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 Focus Home Interactive have yet to announce a more specific release date than "2015," but they have said that development is "gaining momentum."

The song in the trailer, in case you're wondering, is Walking with a Ghost by Kadebostany.
