Focus Home Interactive and Cyanide Studio have release a new trailer for Space Hulk: Tactics showcasing the map editor in-game that will allow players to create custom missions.
This adaptation of the classic board game allows for gamers to pit Genestealers and Space Marines against one another in a brutal battle for survival. The map editor allows players to shape the layout of the map, as well as mission parameters and available units for each team.
Here is an overview of the tool, via Focus Home Interactive:
Learn the ins and outs of making your own missions quickly and easily. Changing layouts and looks, adding logic, and linking elements is just a single button press away, with testing done on the fly from within the editor itself. Custom Terminator squads and Genestealer swarms can be designated for each map, as well as unique rulesets, restrictions, and opportunities for either side. Plus, set an objective for the Terminators – one of twenty which range from annihilation to escape.
Once your masterpiece is complete it can be uploaded online and shared. We’ve created specific forums for players to talk about their creations, creating threads for everything from asking for advice to providing a space for narrative to link a selection of maps that they’ve made. Maps can be found easily in-game through various search and filter tools, including for map creators.
Space Hulk: Tactics is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 9. Check out the trailer for the map editor tool in the game down below. The Steam pre-order beta is available now.
