It's their "most exciting chapter" yet for the 3D turn-based strategy, with a dash of RPG. They estimate over 30 hours of gameplay awaits, where the Salamanders board the Space Hulk 'Virtue of Hatred'.
“The 3D models of the Salamanders are fantastic with lots of new details, and their scorched skin and bright red eyes make them stand out as a force to be reckoned with in the iconic Space Hulk universe," said CEO Thomas Hentschel Lund.
The Salamanders are sent to retrieve pages of the Tome of Fire, or to punish any responsible for defiling them. The studio promises many more environmental challenges alongside the predatory hordes of the Genestealers.
"The Salamanders bring new abilities to the table, as players can now have two Heavy Class Terminators in a squad, each with the option of having a Heavy Flamer to boot. The Salamanders also have an extra Flamer pattern too, and can walk unharmed through flames. The new Salamander Librarian also has some ferocious new pyromantic psychic powers."
Space Hulk: Ascension will be updated with the Salamanders Expansion in February.
