Space Hulk board game adaptation coming to PC, Mac and iOS

New, 2 comments

Space Hulk, the classic strategy board game from Warhammer 40,000 creator Games Workshop, is in development for PC, Mac and iOS devices by Denmark-based indie developer Full Control.

The adaptation will bring the claustrophobic, dungeon-diving fear of the original Space Hulk to the digital realm. One player controls a team of space marines that crawls through the narrow passageways of a derelict spaceship, while another player controls the "Genestealers," a race of deadly humanoid aliens. Many of the game's mechanics are based on sci-fi tropes; for example, the Marines can't see all the Genestealers on the map at any given point, but can see radar blips reminiscent of Ridley Scott's Alien franchise.

Check out the game's announcement trailer above. No release date for Space Hulk has been set, but the game's website promises that it will support cross-play between all three of its launch platforms.
