Space Hulk: Ascension Edition Preorders Up, Date Set

By   /   Nov 3, 2014

Preorders are now available for Space Hulk: Ascension Edition, the improved sequel for the board game adaptation from Games Workshop. It’s still a pricey item, ticking through to €27.99, but there is a slight discount dependent on your previous purchases.

Normal preorders receive a 10% discount. Those who have bought the first Space Hulk game, however, will get another 15% off, which puts the price at €20.99.

In addition, Space Hulk: Ascension Edition has an official release date. It will make its way to PC on November 12, 2014.

There is a ton more to the game than previous time around, for those who are skeptic about the release. There are three campaigns and those yield a sizable 103 missions.

Moreover, new Genestealer aliens will face off against the squads of Space Marines. Those known with the vile race can expect Fleshhook, Feeder Tendril and Acid Maw units during their missions.

Roleplaying game (RPG) elements are added to squad members, so surviving soldiers can increase their skills. Customization also allows you to change appearances and, more importantly, loadouts.

When it first came out, Space Hulk was met with resistance from critics and fans alike. While the board game atmosphere is well-represented in the game, a limitation on content made the price rather demanding.

Still, if Space Hulk: Ascension Edition is doing away with that, it should still be the great tactical gameplay of the previous turn-based adventure. In particular, having to maneuver through narrow corridors and covering each other’s backs made for a claustrophobic experience.

Tell us in the comments if you’re satisfied with how Space Hulk: Ascension Edition is trying to improve the model.
