Space Hulk: Tactics launches this October
Adaption of the board game promises a twist on the formula
Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio have announced that Space Hulk: Tactics, a faithful adaptation of the board game Space Hulk, will release October 9 2018.
On the side of humanity stand the Space Marine Terminators, genetically modified super soldiers clad in heavy armour and equipped with extraordinary firepower that turns them into effective walking tanks. Opposing them are the Genestealers, insidious inhabitants of the floating amalgamations of smashed-together starships called space hulks, hiding inside every pipe and duct, prepared to rend anything that comes close to pieces.
A new card system promises players greater control over their forces, while two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns tell a new story in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A full customisation system is available across four Space Marine chapters and four Genestealer Hive Fleets. A mission editor, inspired by the clip-together nature of building scenarios in the board game, means you can design, share, and play your own maps.
Space Hulk: Tactics comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9. Pre-orders get special bonuses, including a 10% discount, beta access, and unique colour and emblem for each chapter and other variants.
