“Being massive fans of the Space Hulk table-top game and Warhammer 40,000 universe, we are excited to work with FUNBOX Media to bring Space Hulk Ascension to consoles,” said Manny Granillo, CEO of Hoplite Research, LLC. “The game has new content and features, which takes it to a whole new level. With 103 missions, new mechanics and deep customisation, Space Hulk: Ascension will provide players with endless nerve shredding fun, as they lead a fearless team of Space Marine Terminators into battle, in the claustrophobic corridors of a Space Hulk.”
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.
