If you like Warhammer 40,000, then you will no doubt love Space Hulk. Today though it’s time to ditch the board game and grab a controller, for Space Hulk: Tactics promises to put a rather unique twist on the tried and tested Warhammer love-in.
Available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, Space Hulk Tactics will see you thrust into the bloodiest of battles as the Terminator Space Marines and alien Genestealers go head to head in two non-linear narrative driven campaigns.
Priced up at £34.99 (although if you’re quick getting on board then you may just enjoy a little discount on that), Tactics utilises a brand new, highly innovative card system that allows for greater control over your Space Hulk force, twisting the usual formula and ensuring that the cult classic gameplay is set for the modern day.
See, Space Hulk: Tactics covers both the humanity stand, as the Space Marine Terminators take to the field, whilst also sorting out those interested in the more alien form, with the addition of 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.
With an all-new, terrifying story from the Warhammer 40,000 universe included, taking you across 4 Space Marine chapters and a similar amount of Genestealer Hive Fleets, and the inclusion of a robust mission editor, inspired by the clip-together nature of building scenarios in the board game, this is one Space Hulk title you won’t want to miss.
If you’re up for checking out the desperate battle between man and alien like never before, then Space Hulk: Tactics should be purchased immediately. Get yourself over to the Xbox Store if you’re fighting on the Xbox side of the war, whilst those on PS4 and PC will need to head to their own digital stores.
Those taken in by the gameplay found within and who wish to take their experience to the next level would do well to consider a purchase of the rather cheap Customisation Pack too. For just £1.59 you get the opportunity to customise your game with unique colours and badges from Successor Chapters of the Blood Angels, Dark Angels and Ultramarines, and the same again from Heresy-era Space Wolf Terminators, or those belonging to Bran Redmaw’s Great Company.
