"If fighting in claustrophobic corridors against a terrifying alien menace is your cup of tea then today is going to be a very good day for you because the Space Hulk computer game is now available to pre-order for your PC via Steam.

The game's developers at Full Control have been working tirelessly to bring this stunning game to life, the result being an accurate recreation of the Space Hulk board game. Every minute detail has been faithfully recreated, from the pipes and vents on the walls, to the icons and purity seals hanging from the character's armour, to the alien Genestealers.

There are two cool bonuses if you pre-order the game too - a relic banner pole and a Hive Fleet Kraken Genestealer skin, both of which you can see above. The game is scheduled for release on August 15th, so you don't have long to wait before you can start blasting chunks of Genestealer up the walls (or tear open Terminators if you prefer to play as the xenos scum), and it features both single-player and multi-player modes."

  2. Hm, I still think they should have gone with a grittier look, I don't like the bright and flat colors used here.

    1. I dunno it seems like the environs are dark and gritty. It's just the symbolic interface that is bright, for usability and contrast reasons

    2. I'm talking about the models themselves, especially the Terminators which pretty much glow in the dark.

  3. Looks like something to add to my looking forward to list. I used to love the playstation version back in the day. Very creepy and dark. Not sure if this one will inspire the same reactions, but it looks like fun.

  4. Cannot wait. Space Hulk for pc introduced me to the concept of space marines. I would never have been interested in GW as I got older without ther influence

    1. Even at £23, it's a better option than trying to pick up the board game.

      Allowing the fact that you may own it already.

  6. I hope it's as difficult as the previous installments of Space Hulk for computer / console used to be.
    Also I hope they will bring DLCs to add some more chapters (want my Deathwing). ;-)

    Cheers,

    1. Here is for hoping. The trends are that it will be more 'accessible' to the general public while still trying to fulfill the needs for the experienced turn-based strategist. Here is hoping for several difficulty settings.
