A Space Hulk video game, based on the best-selling board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, will be released for PC, Mac and iOS in 2013, independent studio Full Control has announced in association with Games Workshop.

Space Hulk will be a turn based strategy game that recreates the classic board game experience for single-player and multiplayer cross-platform play between PC, Mac, and iOS.

Set in the corridors and chambers of an ancient vessel lost in space, players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle against hordes of alien Genestealers.

The game will include a 12 mission single-player and cooperative campaign based on the Sin of Damnation campaign from the 3rd edition board game.

Cross platform functionality in multiplayer mode allows players to compete against friends whether they play on PC, Mac or mobile. The addition of a level editor will enable players to design their own levels and share them with the community.

"Since playing the board game decades ago I have always wanted to recreate this slice of Warhammer 40,000 as a computer game. Now we can finally bring the board game to life in glorious 3D full of scary Genestealers and mighty Terminators fighting for human kind," said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control. "As huge fans of the Space Hulk board game and the Warhammer 40,000 universe in general, we are delighted that Games Workshop has given us the opportunity to work with this iconic license and bring our version of Space Hulk into the hands of all fans out there."

Full Control has previously released Tactical Soldier - Undead Rising and Frontline Tactics.
