Space Hulk: Tactics is the next upcoming video game iteration of the old Space Hulk tabletop, and if our preview is anything to go by, it's looking to be the best version yet. One of the things we're most excited about is its Genestealer campaign feature!
The latest trailer released for Space Hulk: Tactics showcases just what we ought to expect from its Genestealer campaign, with a particular focus on the Xenos' unique gameplay features and customisation options, as well as their specialist strains.
For example, whereas the Astartes Marines will spawn on the map from the start of the match, kickstarting one of their various objectives, Genestealers' controller will have unspawned nodes of Xenos that they'll then have to move around to get the drop on Marines.
Similarly, while the Marines will have to complete specific objectives on any of their levels, Genestealers will simply have the task of slaughtering all of their opponents as soon as possible. To aid them in this task are three special variants of Tyranid at their disposal.
Be sure to check out the gameplay trailer down below for a look at how you'll be able to customise your Xenos, too, as well as a taste of how they'll play in practice. Space Hulk: Tactics is coming out on 9th of October!
