Space Hulk: Tactics is Now Available in Pre-Order Beta

Pre-order Space Hulk: Tactics today and get access to the beta immediately!

Space Hulk: Tactics, the faithful adaptation of the classic Warhammer 40,000 board game with new twists on the formula, from Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio, is now available in pre-order beta. The beta includes the extensive customization system, full multiplayer and map editor features, as well as a tease for the two campaigns and is available on Steam to all players who pre-order.

In the latest trailer we profile the Genestealers, the festering malice at the heart of the Space Hulk, ready to cut down all Space Marine Terminators that come aboard. Their strategies and playstyle are completely different, creating a truly asymmetrical multiplayer. Using their numbers and agility to their advantage, the Genestealers are a more aggressive force, but one with less options on how to handle each situation.
Warhammer 40,000 In the Steam pre-order beta, players can play the Genestealers and the Terminators, in skirmish and multiplayer across five maps. Also available is the full customization system and the map editor, letting the creative types in the community get started early on new creations and master plans.

A preview of each faction’s campaign is also playable, serving both as a tutorial and a taste of what awaits in the full game. Save games will be compatible with the release version, so players can immediately continue their mission on October 9th. The pre-order bonuses will also be available in the beta, giving access to second founding chapters and other alternate versions of the base game’s Blood Angels, Space Wolves, Dark Angels, and Ultramarines chapters.

The pre-order beta will run up until the launch of the game, with regular updates to address bugs and balance issues as reported by the community. On launch day, October 9, players will gain access to more official maps as well as the two complete, massive single-player campaigns. All Steam pre-orders have a 10% discount up until launch and will give instant access to the beta, as well as the pre-order cosmetics.

THE GAME

Cyanide Studio is proud to take on another Warhammer 40,000 cult classic: Space Hulk! 

Bringing a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, engage in 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. Which side will you choose?

Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns: lead a Blood Angels squad, which you will customize and upgrade as you progress, or control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game! Space Hulk: Tactics is based on the rules of the popular board game, given a fresh new spin in the form of the unique Card system. Cards give more ways to customize your squad before a match, and allow you to turn the tides of battle with abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment.

Test your skills against other players in the expansive online competitive multiplayer. Command a swarm of Genestealers or a custom squad of different unit types from one of four Space Marine Chapters – the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels. The game includes a built-in intuitive map creation tool, to design your own original maps with custom objective, and share them with other!
