If you’re looking to take your Space Hulk experience into the virtual world, then there will be only one option for you – Space Hulk: Tactics. Today a brand new overview trailer has emerged and it should be more than enough to get the juices flowing.
With Space Hulk: Tactics due to release on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later in 2018, gamers should expect to find a faithful adaptation of the Warhammer 40,000 board game alongside some unique twists to the cult classic formula. And these are shown off brilliantly in the new Overview Trailer which showcases the game’s battle system, team management, customisation and unique card system.
The very first twist is the innovative new card system, giving players greater control and more options than ever before. Whether you are a grizzled veteran or Space Hulk newbie you will find the cards that add a new layer of depth, replayability and customization.
Also showcased are the two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns, offering hours of epic single-player entertainment. One campaign will see you commanding the stalwart Blood Angels Space Marine Terminators, while the other puts you in control of the alien Genestealer forces for the first time in a Space Hulk game.
This is a game that also provides an intuitive but powerful community tool in the form of a map maker, with dozens of varied objectives and endless possible combinations of layouts, objects and tilesets, all in place. And once you’ve let your imagination run riot, you’ll get the chance to share your maps with others in the community to play and rate.
And finally, Space Hulk: Tactics will bring a deep customisation system into play, one that affects both gameplay and the appearance of your squad. Giving the opportunity to hand-craft your forces from one of four Space Marine Chapters or four Genestealer Hive Fleets, a whole host of cosmetic customization options for every limb, joint, and weapon allow you to choose the exact look of the units in your roster. All multiplayer cosmetics are unlocked from the very start too, along with all multiplayer cards.
Space Hulk: Tactics will be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year. Should you like what you are seeing then it may be worth considering a bit of a pre-order. That will start on Steam from tomorrow, ensuring you get access to special bonuses. E3 attendees will also find Tactics playable at the show.
