Focus Home Interactive has announced today that Space Hulk: Tactics, the faithful adaptation of the board game Space Hulk, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, is releasing on the 9th of October on PS4, Xbox One and PC. To celebrate the released date announcement, the publisher unveiled a new gameplay trailer pitting mankind versus alien in desperate, turn-based battle.

On the side of humanity stand the Space Marine Terminators, genetically modified super soldiers clad in heavy armour and equipped with extraordinary firepower that turns them into effective walking tanks. Opposing them are the Genestealers, insidious inhabitants of the floating amalgamations of smashed-together starships called space hulks, hiding inside every pipe and duct, prepared to rend anything that comes close to pieces with glistening claws.

An innovative new card system gives players greater control over their forces, while two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns tell a new, terrifying story in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A full customisation system is available across four Space Marine chapters and four Genestealer Hive Fleets, letting you design your force down to the last shoulder plate or weapon hilt. A robust mission editor, inspired by the clip-together nature of building scenarios in the board game, means you can design, share, and play your own maps quickly and easily.

Space Hulk: Tactics is now available to pre-order on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Those who pre-order the game will get special bonuses, including a 10% discount, beta access, and unique colour and emblem for each chapter and other variants.
