Full Control’s turn-based strategy video game reincarnation of Space Hulk, the classic Warhammer 40,000 tabletop game from Games Workshop, is officially a go for PC/Mac launch on August 15th, with today marking the opening of the game’s pre-purchase availability on Steam. An iPad version is also in the works, but its turn won’t come around until later in the year.

“We’ve been sweating away on Space Hulk for several months and are excited to finally unleash our take of this classic, iconic franchise, that perfectly recreates the classic claustrophobic board game experience for single and multiplayer play”, said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control. “As enormous fans of the franchise, we know that this game will drive home with the players and are excited to finally let battle commence.”

For the Steam version, which is priced at $29.99, pre-order customers will be rewarded with exclusive bonus content, including a banner pole to show off during multiplayer as well as a Hive Fleet Kraken Genestealer skin to rock during solo campaign action.
