There’s been a lot of exciting news oozing from this year’s GDC, but for me, one of the most cheer-inducing has been the unveiling of Full Control Studios’ Space Hulk.
Based on the classic Games Workshop franchise, you’ll be taking command of a small squad of Terminators on a series of often near-suicidal missions aboard derelict spacecraft. Opposing your little team are hundreds upon hundreds of genestealers; freakishly strong and fast aliens from your darkest nightmares.
Sounds like a party.
Full Control Studios are aiming for a direct conversion of the classic boardgame. Space Hulk is a series that has languished unloved at the bottom of GW’s IP bucket for a considerable time, but given the popularity of XCOM’s turn-based shennanigans, I’d be very surprised if this one doesn’t do very well indeed.
