New Gameplay trailer for Space Hulk: Tactics

Space Hulk: Tactics is due for release sometime in 2018 and Cyanide Studios and Focus Home Interactive have just released a brand new trailer. Space Hulk: Tactics is a faithful adaptation of the board game, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, bringing unique twists to the cult classic formula. The new trailer showcases the game’s battle system, team management, customization and unique card system, so you’re ready for glorious combat when Space Hulk: Tactics releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

First twist is the innovative new card system, giving players greater control and more options than ever before. Grizzled veterans and Space Hulk newcomers alike will find the cards add a new layer of depth, replayability and customization, as explained in the trailer. Also showcased are the two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns, offering hours of epic single-player entertainment. One campaign sees 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.

The game also provides an intuitive but powerful community tool in the form of the map maker, with dozens of varied objectives and endless possible combinations of layouts, objects and tilesets. Once completed, share your maps with others for the community to play and rate.

Finally, Space Hulk: Tactics offers a deep customisation system affecting both gameplay and the appearance of your squad. Hand-craft your forces from one of four Space Marine Chapters or four Genestealer Hive Fleets. A 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, along with all multiplayer cards.

After successfully bringing Blood Bowl, the classic board game by Games Workshop, to Consoles and PC with two faithful adaptations, Cyanide Studio is proud to take on another fan favourite from the Warhammer 40,000 universe with their turn-based tactical game, Space Hulk: Tactics!

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.

Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns, from the points of view of two different factions: one campaign puts you in control of a Blood Angels squad, which you will customise and upgrade as you progress, while the other puts you in 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, letting you 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. Multiplayer modes and tools offer a rich and deep online experience, and include an intuitive map creation tool, which gives players everything they need to create original maps with custom objective, and share them with other players to play either online or against the AI, all from within the game!

Space Hulk: Tactics comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2018.
