Space Hulk: Tactics gets pre-order beta, better look at the Genestealers release

A turn-based title based on the Space Hulk tabletop game, Tactics is almost here. Get a detailed look at the Genestealers and play the beta today.

Looking pretty good there, as Cyanide Studios digs back into thee Warhammer 40k universe. This time of course, it’s for ages that’s a little slower and more… tactical. And I mean turn-based there, as you an see in the trailer.

Also as you can see, a big part of the game will be customization. Apparently that goes for the Genestealers as well as the Space Marines. We saw the latter in a previous peek at the game, but here we get to see what customizing the Genestealers looks like. It’s seemingly much the same as the Space Marine options, just sans the hardware. You can however, really mess with the color schemes, which is pretty neat. After all, The Genestealers have looked pretty much the same forever.

One of the coolest things about the game too, is there there’s a pre-order beta kicking off soon on Steam. So if you  pre-order a copy (via Steam) you’ll get to play pretty early. The beta will allow you to play as the Marines or the Genestealers across five maps in both skirmish and multiplayer modes. Getting back to that theme of customization too, you’ll be able to play with the editor in depth, including the map editor so you can make your own missions. So there’ll be a lot to do before the game even launches.

The beta kicks off today, while the full game hits stands on the 9th of October.
