Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio have just confirmed that the pre-order beta for Space Hulk: Tactics, the upcoming adaptation of the classic tabletop game, will start on Steam tomorrow.
As part of the announcement we got a fresh trailer showcasing the Genestealers, the "festering malice at the heart of the Space Hulk, ready to cut down any and all Space Marine Terminators that come aboard." You can check out the full trailer below.
During the beta, players can take control of the Genestealers, as well as jump into the more traditional boots of the hulking Terminators. The Genestealers are said to offer contrasting strategies and playstyles that result in a genuinely asymmetric experience, using their numbers to try and overwhelm their less mobile but more heavily-armed opponents.
The beta lets players enjoy both skirmish and multiplayer across five different maps. Also included as part of the test/demo is the full range of customisation options and the map editor. The pre-order beta will run up until the launch of the game on October 9, 2018, at which time things will get tactical on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
