In only a couple of days before Gamescom 2018, Space Hulk: Tactics just got a release date revealed along with an action-packed gameplay trailer.
An adaptation of the board game, Space Hulk: Tactics is set in the Warhammer 40K universe. Scheduled to be released on October 9, Space Hulk: Tactics pits humankind against aliens in turn-based battles.
On one side of the conflict are the super soldiers known as Space Marine Terminators — genetically modified to become walking tanks. On the other side are Genestealers, which are creatures that hide away in ship pipes and ducts, waiting for the right moment to strike with their deadly claws.
Space Hulk: Tactics is also filled with customization options across four chapters featuring the Space Marines and the Genestealer Hive Fleets. This allows players to design their forces with more precision — even down to a fighter’s shoulder plate.
The mission editor also lets players design and share their maps quickly. Coupled with two narrative-driven campaigns featuring a terrifying story in the Warhammer 40K universe, Space Hulk: Tactics gets a new card system for additional control and customization of forces.
The game will be available on the Xbox One, PS4, and the PC. Players who pre-order Space Hulk: Tactics on Steam would also get special bonuses, including beta access, a unique colour and emblem for each in-game chapter, as well as a 10 per cent discount.
