Deadly struggles are waged in the cold depths of space in Space Hulk, the strategy mmo developed by Full Control. Based upon the classic board game by Games Workshop, this game features squads of heavily armored space marines fighting terrifying alien foes on hulking derelict spaceships. Set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, players take part in a 3d digital turn based strategy game with a claustrophobic atmosphere.
In the grim darkness of the far future, mankind has colonized the stars but has fallen into a new Dark Age. Rife with superstition, humanity struggles to survive against countless alien foes seeking to destroy the human race or enslave it. The chief protectors of mankind are the fearless Space Marines, genetically engineered super-soldiers who, encased in mighty suits of powered armor, willingly die to serve the Emperor and keep humanity safe. One of the countless tasks of squads of specialized Space Marines called Terminators is to explore the derelict remains of ancient vessels that have drifted for decades, or centuries, in the graveyard of space. These ships may contain priceless technological artifacts and need to be explored. Space Hulk recreates the space marines' forays into the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of these lost ships. All too often, these abandoned ships are infested with Genestealers, horrific alien creatures who have lightning fast reflexes and can shred armor with their razor sharp claws.
Space Hulk faithfully recreates the classic board game originally released back in 1989. Players can engage in the tension-filled action across multiple platforms (PC, Mac, and iOS). This turn based mmo game features the Blood Angels Space Marines facing off against the numerous Genestealers. Players can play single player as the Space Marines as they fight their way through the ancient ship, always expecting that turning the next corner or opening a door will lead to an attack. The battles are tough with the Genestealer AI being extremely challenging, so expect every victory to be hard-won. Two players can play co-op with each player taking command of a single squad of Space Marines. For the ultimate test, two players can go head-to-head with one player taking the Genestealers whilst the other takes the Space Marines.
Fans of the classic board game and lovers of turn based strategy games will rack up the hours with Space Hulk. A faithful recreation that works both as a single player and multi-player game will result in countless battles being fought online. Full Contact is promising a level editor so players can create their own hulks and share them with others. Future game expansions with other Space Marine chapters and other content will be released in the future as DLC.
