Space Hulk - Ascension Edition Announced

by Couchpotato, 01:51

Danish developer Full Control announced the upcoming release of a new complete edition with all the Dlc for Space Hulk called The Ascension Edition.

Space Hulk: Ascension Edition is a 3D, digital, turn based, strategy game, which builds upon the classic board game experience, and adds new RPG style mechanics, additional weapons and enemy types, an all-new chapter and loads of other new features to both the single player and multiplayer experience. 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. The game comes with over 100 missions spread out over 3 complete campaigns, and all new flash missions. These are opportunistic mini-missions encountered as you explore the deep unknowns of the Space Hulk that can yield a tactical advantage or be a deadly trap.

The introduction of squad management and skill progression lets players build their own squads of hardened veterans. There are also new variations of Genestealers to face, and more complex maps to overcome, making the game more fun, challenging and rewarding to play. Space Hulk: Ascension Edition also introduces the Ultramarine chapter, combi weapons and the mighty Cyclone missile launcher as new weapon options, which are sure to shake things up on the battlefield.

About the Space Wolves Expansion

The Wolf Guard’s boarding torpedoes slammed into the side of the Messenger of Woe and the Terminators stormed out, quickly establishing a bridgehead from which to launch further attacks. Progress was good and hundreds of Genestealers fell to the Space Wolves’ assault cannon and chainfists. However, a relatively small force of the vile aliens managed to evade the fate of their brethren, slipping away into the shadowy depths of the hulk whilst the Wolf Guard fiercely battled their way towards them. Eradicating this knot of resistance would be the Space Wolves’ main, and most treacherous, task. The Space Wolves Expansion is priced at $4.99 and can be found here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/242570/ or https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/space-hulk/id742022720?mt=8

When the Battlebarge, Mayan, picks up the escape pods, they decide to recapture The Sword of Halcyon.Time is of the essence in this campaign, as players must complete objectives, and take out Genestealers as quickly as possible. To aid players in the race against the clock, Bulkhead Doors are introduced, which enable terminators to completely shut off certain areas.
