Community Update #1



Hi everyone,

Space Hulk: Tactics released two days ago and we’d like to extend a huge thank to all of you who played and posted feedback about the game. We’re closely monitoring your reports on Steam, the official forums, and social networks to develop patches answering your requests.

You’ll find below our take on the main feedback we’ve received.

We’ve read a lot of comments about the AI of the game, especially in the campaign. Space Hulk: Tactics’ campaigns are meant to slowly introduce players to the mechanics of the game. The first missions feature a less aggressive AI to give time to new commanders to learn to control a terminator squad. The further you progress through the campaign, the more risks the AI take and it quickly starts to become aggressive, as you would expect a Genestealer pack to be.

Of course, it doesn’t mean the AI is perfect and we’re working hard on your reports to improve it. You can count on the Genestealers to be more aggressive in many situations after a first update next week!

The frequency and variety of the mini-skirmishes in the campaigns will also be tweaked as some of you reported some issues on that front.

We’d also like to come back on the mechanics of the macro map in the campaigns as we’ve seen some reports about the map being smaller than expected. The macro map brings an additional layer to the campaign with optional story elements, events, and loot.



The big points in the maps are the main missions and the other nodes are smaller encounters that flesh out your progression through the campaign. Note that a node can also be empty. It’s up to you to either rush from one mission to another by taking the shorter path, or explore the macro map to collect optional bonuses and fight mini skirmishes.

Once you’ve finished a main story mission, it will unlock a new portion of the macro map. The map you see at the end of the first mission is only a small part of the overall map of the Space Hulk you’ll visit. The Blood Angels campaign features 13 main missions, as well as 4 optional ones depending on your choices, and the Genestealers campaign features 9 missions in which you face Ultramarines, Dark Angels and Space Wolves squads.

Some of you posted some requests to speed up the overall pace of the game. We understand your feedback on that side as well and we’re working on various options to increase the pace of the game both in singleplayer and multiplayer. More about that soon as we plan this update in the coming weeks.

Finally, we’re hard at work on the remaining technical issues. We’ve just created a Beta branch for you to test the latest technical improvements. If you’re experiencing crashes in the campaigns, please try our Beta branch and tell us if it’s smoother.

See you soon for more info,

The Space Hulk: Tactics Team

Now available!



Space Hulk: Tactics is now available!

We've just updated the Pre-Order Beta with the full version of the game. Official release on Steam is in a few hours. That means you can still get the pre-order bonuses for a few hours and get the full game instantly!

Last week’s Launch Trailer is the perfect introduction to our turn-based tactical game, showing the deadly standoffs between the pinnacles of human development and the galaxy’s most deadly threat.

On the side of humanity stand the Space Marine Terminators, genetically modified super soldiers clad in heavy armour and equipped with extraordinary firepower that turns them into effective walking tanks. Opposing them are the Genestealers, insidious inhabitants of the floating amalgamations of smashed-together starships called space hulks, hiding inside every pipe and duct, prepared to rend anything that comes close to pieces with glistening claws.



An innovative new card system gives players greater control over their forces, while two non-linear, narrative-driven campaigns tell a new, terrifying story in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. A full customisation system is available across four Space Marine chapters and four Genestealer Hive Fleets, letting you design your force down to the last shoulder plate or weapon hilt. A robust mission editor, inspired by the clip-together nature of building scenarios in the board game, means you can design, share, and play your own maps quickly and easily.

Space Hulk: Tactics comes today to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

About This Game

Space Hulk: Tactics is a faithful adaptation of the board game Space Hulk, set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, bringing a unique twist to the cult classic formula. Engage in bloody battles through an immense Space Hulk - a twisted mass of asteroids, wrecked star 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 customise and upgrade as you progress, or take 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 provide more ways to customize your squad and allow you to turn the tide of battle with powerful 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 available – 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 objectives, and share them with other players!
