event in Paris. For now they offer
and the following details:
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. Which side will you choose?
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!
