“Play in co-op with friends in a Dark Angels Terminator squad of the elite Deathwing, dispatched to eradicate the Genestealer threat on Space Hulk Olethros, a cluster of derelict ships and debris collected over years of war. Playable in single or multiplayer, lead your squad through xeno-infested ships and debris as you search for the source of ominous psychic disturbances.
Your Terminator and your squad can be customized – skills can be learned and levelled up, and you can choose a wide variety of ranged and melee weapons to bring in to the Space Hulk. During battle, command your team to hold choke points, hack into doors, and cover your advance. Nothing is as it seems in Space Hulk Olethros, and with a story co-written by acclaimed Dark Angels writer Gavin Thorpe, you can be sure that easter eggs are hidden around every corner.
