Space Hulk Ascension

Space Hulk: Ascension


Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of ancient vessels lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small force of fearless Space Marine Terminators in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory, alien Genestealers.
The standalone sequel to Space Hulk brings an all new and improved single-player experience for the turn-based strategy game.

Campaigns and Missions

100+ missions spread out over 3 complete campaigns, and all new flash missions. These are opportunistic mini-missions encountered as you explore the deep unknowns of the Space Hulk that can yield a tactical advantage or be a deadly trap.

Additional Weapons, Tactical Options and Game Rules

Genestealers with Fleshhook, Feeder Tendril and Acid Maw biomorphs have been added to the game, each with their own special game mechanics. You can also encounter biomorphs with scythes that have multiple attacks or carapace for increased armor.

  • It manages to take a step forward from the previous episode, and becomes one of the most faithful adaptations of the Warhammer universe.

  • With some of the most nerve-shredding strategy you can engage in and a real embarrassment of riches when it comes to content, Space Hulk Ascension’s niggles aren’t nearly enough to derail it from being both the best Space Hulk title and one of the better turn-based strategy titles available right now.

  • Pelit (Finland)

    The game lacks proper storytelling and has a clunky user-interface. Still, it’s very faithful to the original Space Hulk board game which is always a plus. [Dec 2014]

  • Space Hulk: Ascension Edition is the more complete and refined version of 2013’s title bearing the same namesake.

  • The new edition of Space Hulk is a rich and compelling turn based strategy game. Multiplayer support is gone but we got three full campaigns in return.

  • Full Control revisits the “Space Hulk” franchise by improving the game in every possible field. Deep tactical turn based battle approach, interesting unit customisation, true to the tabletop source material design and a claustrophobic atmosphere deliver an excellent game.

  • Space Hulk: Ascension rises to the challenge by preserving the spirit and most of the mechanics of the original board game, while still expanding on the design to embrace its new home on the PC.

  • Space Hulk Ascension is a faithful port of the famous board game with some new additions in the RPG ballpark that make the game both fun and interesting for tactical players. Too bad for the presentation issues that keep the game away from true awesomeness and don't do justice to the wonderfully crafted world of Warhammer 40k.

  • PC PowerPlay

    A proper video game adaptation of a great boardgame - at last! [March 2015, p.62]

  • What's truly disappointing is that there are seeds of greatness here. [Issue#161, p.94]
