Blood Bowl dev announce new Warhammer game for Steam PC
French developer working on its next Warhammer 40,000-based game
Cyanide Studio announced today (February 2nd) that the team will be jumping back into the Warhammer 40,000 Universe with turn-based tactical game Space Hulk: Tactics.
Published by Focus Home Interactive, the game will bring a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, featuring 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. Space Hulk: Tactics will have two narrative-driven campaigns from the points of view of two different factions - one campaign puts you in control of a Blood Angels squad, which allows you to customize and upgrade as you progress - while the other puts you in control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game.
Cyanide Studio have also revealed that the game will use a unique card system, giving players more ways to customize their squad before a match, allowing you to turn the tides of battle with abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment.
The game's expansive online competitive multiplayer modes, which includes the Genestealers and four types of Marine units - the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels - as playable teams, will also have map creation tools for customizing objectives and sharing with fellow players.
Space Hulk: Tactics will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this year, with more information due to be unveiled at Le What’s Next de Focus press event in Paris next week.
