Space Hulk: Tactics Announced; Taking the Series Back to Tactical Board Game Style


Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studios have just announced Space Hulk: Tactics, a new game based on a Warhammer 40,000 board game Space Hulk.

Many Warhammer 40K fans may be familiar with Space Hulk: Deathwing, the first-person shooter that takes place within a giant, derelict spaceship with Space Marines battling waves of Tyranids. Yet, what some may not realize is that the original board game is actually played at a slower, more tactical pace.

In fact, another thing some may not know is that Space Hulk will now have three video game iterations attached to its name. There’s Deathwing, as mentioned before, as well as the original game simply called Space Hulk, which more closely resembled the board game. It was very thin on story, mostly focusing on being just a digital representation of the tabletop title.

Space Hulk: Tactics seems to be a mix of being an homage to the board game, while also bringing more to the table on the video game side. There hasn’t been much in the way of gameplay revealed, but the game is going to be fully unveiled fully during a press event in Paris later this week.

It’ll come for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2018.

While an Xbox One version of Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition was previously planned, it seems to have been quietly cancelled. The press release for today’s announcement, new gameplay trailer, and official website all make no mention of an Xbox One version.

Here is an overview of the game, via Focus Home Interactive:


Play as a Space Marine of the Deathwing – the feared 1st Company of the secretive Dark Angels – and engage in a desperate battle against Genestealers within the confines of a Space Hulk. Grow more powerful, gain skills and abilities, and master devastating weapons as you earn experience. Play solo or in online cooperative multiplayer with up to 4 players. The Enhanced Edition brings a host of new content and upgrades, expanding upon the base game for the ultimate Space Hulk experience:
•Class Customization – deep progression system lets players unlock armor and weapon skins, attachments, perks and more for aesthetic and gameplay customization.
•Chaplain Class – the Chaplain brings a host of abilities to increase the squad’s survivability, and is more than capable of killing hordes of Xenos in melee combat.
•New Weapons – more melee and ranged weapons give players even more options to load out their squad in battle.
•New Enemy Types – new, unique Genestealer types offer greater challenge to those who dare enter the depths of the Space Hulk.
•Special Missions – randomized objectives and enemy spawns bring a new level of replayability.

All aspects of Class Customization are earned entirely in-game, with no microtransactions. Several of the above features have already been made freely available on PC, as part of the game’s ongoing support.
