Focus Home Interactive has announced that Cyanide’s faithful adaptation of the board game Space Hulk, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk: Tactics, will release on October 9th. In order to celebrate this announcement, the publisher released the Gamescom 2018 trailer for it that you can find below.
As the press release reads:
“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 with glistening claws.”
Space Hulk: Tactics promises to feature an innovative new card system that will give players greater control over their forces, while two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns tell a new, terrifying story in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A full customisation system is also 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.
Furthermore, 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.
