Space Hulk: Tactics Launch Trailer

Witness endless battle and the doom of a world in the Space Hulk: Tactics launch trailer!

Space Hulk: Tactics is a faithful, turn-based tactics adaptation of the board game Space Hulk, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, bringing unique twists to the cult classic formula. The new launch trailer will prepare you for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in just a few days, October 9th. See the desperate battle between man and alien like never before!

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 deadly, 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.

An innovative new card system gives 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 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.

Space Hulk: Tactics comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9th. Pre-order Space Hulk: Tactics today on Steam and get special bonuses, including a 10% discount, immediate beta access, and unique second founding color schemes for your Terminators.

The Space Hulk: Tactics pre-order beta is ongoing, pre-order now on Steam to play. The game releases on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on October 9.

ABOUT SPACE HULK: TACTICS
Cyanide Studio is proud to take on another Warhammer 40,000 cult classic: Space Hulk! Bringing a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, engage in bloody battles through an immense Space Hulk – a twisted mass of asteroids, wrecked ships, and debris – as either a squad of Terminator Space Marines or the deadly alien Genestealers. Which side will you choose?

Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns: lead a Blood Angels squad, which you will customize and upgrade as you progress, or control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game! Space Hulk: Tactics is based on the rules of the popular board game, given a fresh new spin in the form of the unique Card system. Cards give more ways to customize your squad before a match and allow you to turn the tides of battle with abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment.

Test your skills against other players in the expansive online competitive multiplayer. Command a swarm of Genestealers or a custom squad of different unit types from one of four Space Marine Chapters – the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels. The game includes a built-in intuitive map creation tool, to design your own original maps with custom objective, and share them with other!
