Space Hulk coming to PC in 2013 with co-op

If you missed Games Workshop's recent reissue of Space Hulk, or simply enjoy purging aliens from derelict space ships, good news! A new video game adaptation is in the works for PC, Mac and iOS, staying true to the classic turn-based Warhammer 40,000 board game but packing lovelies like a co-op mode and cross-platform play.

Space Hulk sees Space Marines clad in their finest and fanciest Terminator armour boarding hulking great derelict ships to clear out an infestation of naughty Tyranid Genestealers. It's attempting to recreate the tense tabletop experience, with Games Workshop saying "It's a turn-based game that emulates the look and feel of the board game, but with full 3D animation."

Along with 12 missions based upon the 'Sin of Damnation' campaign from Space Hulk's third edition, it'll pack cross-platform co-op and competitive multiplayer, and a level editor to share cruel creations with chums across the Imperium of Man.

Electronic Arts released a Space Hulk adaptation way back in 1993, and a sequel in 1995.

The new one is due in 2013, developed by Frontline Tactics maker Full Control. Don't miss the delightfully retro official website and announcement trailer:
