Space Hulk Alpha at Rezzed
Normally I wouldn't really be paying much attention to the Rezzed and Indie Games Show, not when I'm still reeling from the deluge of E3 that has been hammering against my consciousness non-stop, but something made me pause. Then, slowly re-reading what I just glanced upon, a smile breaks out on my face. "FULL CONTROL UNVEILS "SPACE HULK" ALPHA THIS WEEKEND AT REZZED IN BIRMINGHAM, UK" Hell yeah.
Released alongside a few new screenshots, the alpha build has just been showcased to consumers for the first time, and what's more, the team, Full Control, is "confident of (their) Fall launch date". For those who are still unenlightened, Space Hulk is "one of the most anticipated turn based strategy releases of 2013", set within the rich Warhammer 40,000 universe, where there is only War. And giant shoulder pads. The developers have this to say about the game:
"Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of an ancient vessel lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Based on the "Sin of Damnation" campaign from the 3rd edition board game, Space Hulk includes a robust 12-mission single-player and co-operative campaign. Recreating the tense battles of the board game, multiplayer mode will allow players to go head-to-head as one player controls the Space Marines and their opponent, the Genestealers, in the ultimate fight for domination."
Anyway, check out the screenshots below, and watch the site for the preview, which I'm sure we'll be able to get our hands on sooner or later.
