Nomad Games is making a Warhammer 40,000 version of Talisman Digital (PC and Mac). With Talisman: The Horus Heresy, the game is scaled up so that players are competing for control of the galaxy. It’ll feature both against-AI and online multiplayer modes at release next month.
Another 40K game, Space Hulk, is seeing release on Nintendo Wii U courtesy of HR Games.
Square Shooters, the dice as playing cards game, is being developed as a free-to-play mobile app. A version for online casinos is also planned. Development is being performed by students at the Cleveland Institute of Art as a class project.
HR Games and Funbox Media announced that they have inked a PAL/European publishing and distribution agreement for the boxed and digital version of Games Workshop’s SPACE HULK: Ascension for the PS4 in 2016.
Features for Space Hulk: Ascension include:
• Huge amounts of content – 103 unique missions spread out across 3 campaign chapters
• New enemies – new Genestealer variations for you to face in the depths of the Space Hulk.
• New mechanics – a complete reworking of the board game rules and mechanics. It’s still the Space Hulk game you love, re-imagined for a new experience.
• Customisation – RPG-style skill progression and player squad management allow you to create your own tailor-made team of hardened veterans.
• New weapons, more complex maps, combi-weapons and flash missions.
• 10 times the amount of content of the original game, with 50 – 100 hours of game time.
SPACE HULK: Ascension is a 3D, digital, turn based, strategy game, which builds upon the classic board game experience, and adds new RPG style mechanics, additional weapons, enemy types, an all-new chapter and loads of other new features. Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of ancient vessels lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small force of fearless Space Marine Terminators in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory, alien Genestealers.
You can now get your copy of Space Hulk for your PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita created by Funbox Media along with HR Games. You can order them from the Funbox Media website.
Space Hulk pits a squad of Space Marine Terminators versus deadly Genestealers in the cramped and claustrophobic corridors of a Space Hulk, a derelict spaceship that is comprised of the shells of various spaceships crunched together.
The video game emulates the board game in how it works, so if you know how to play the board game, you already know how to play the video game.
Deep-Cut Studios have released another new gaming mat; The title Space Hulk speaks for itself and is a great background for all your sci-fi battles. As usual, the mat is available in several sizes and material options to suit every taste. Check our website for more visuals!
A new teaser appeared on the Games Workshop What’s New Today page showing off a teaser for what is without a doubt to be a new print run of the WH40K Space Hulk board game.
Earlier there were rumours, but now actual information and contents have emerged. As you can see below the contents of the box are very much the same as the 2009 version of the game and once again you’re getting a very nice looking and indeed quality product.
In the new White Dwarf it appears as if the focus is on running the Beachhead mission and it shows off the game quite nicely. There is even the Boarding Torpedo tile. The pictures below show off some of the tiles in the game including one of the new ones that is part of the Hard Vacuum mission. It represents a breached section of the Space Hulk that your Terminators must trudge through and it does have a nice design and feel to it giving you a claustrophobic feel.
As well as the actual release there is also a White Dwarf Exclusive mission that’s called Disable the Shields.
English Only Re-Release of the 2009 Version4
New Counters including – Boarding Torpedoes, Breach Counters, Damaged Control Room & Turbo Lift Tiles
32 Easy Fit Models including – 22 Genestealers, 1 Broodlord & 12 Space Marine Terminators
