Space Hulk Returns in 2013
Independent studio Full Control today announced that in association with Games Workshop it will be bringing the Space Hulk IP to digital platforms in 2013. Based on the board game and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk is a 3D turn-based strategy game that recreates the board game experience for single player and multiplayer cross-platform play between PC, Mac and on iOS.
Space Hulk is set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of an ancient vessel lost in the graveyard of space. Players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Based on the “Sin of Damnation” campaign from the 3rd edition board game, Space Hulk includes a 12-mission single-player and co-operative campaign. Recreating the battles of the board game, multiplayer mode will allow players to go head-to-head as one player controls the Space Marines and their opponent the Genestealers. Cross platform functionality in multiplayer mode allows players to compete against friends whether they play on PC, Mac or mobile. The Space Hulk level editor will enable players to design their own levels, share them with others online and in a central hub explore creations of the community.
