At Gamescom 2018, Space Hulk: Tactics announced that their faithful adaptation of the Space Hulk boardgame will come to Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 9th. The two sides in this battle are the Empire of Mankind’s “Space Marine Terminators” who are genetically modified soldiers in powerarmor, geared to destroy anything in their path. The other side is the “Genestealers”, which are floating monstrosities who inhabit the smashed-together space hulks that float through space. Players will have control over their forces with a new card system, and across the two narrative-driven campaigns tell a new story in the Warhammer 40k universe.
A full customization system is available across four Space Marine chapters and four Genestealer Hive Fleets, letting you design your force down to the last shoulder plate or weapon hilt. A robust 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 quickly and easily. The pre-order for Space Hulk: Tactics is 10% off for now, which also includes beta access and unique color/emblem options for each chapter.
