New Space Hulk Campaigns Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Full Control has announced the release of two new campaign add-ons for Space Hulk, its 3D digital turn based strategy game based on the best-selling board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Sword of Halcyon challenges players to recapture a damaged vessel and Defilement of Honor includes a race against time to shut down a Space Hulk's damaged engines before it is destroyed.

Sword of Halcyon

The Space Marine vessel, The Sword of Halcyon, left the orbit of the planet Falkan, for its journey home. Upon entering the Warp, the ship crashed into a Space Hulk, infecting the ship with Genestealers. When the Battlebarge, Mayan, picks up the escape pods, they decide to recapture The Sword of Halcyon. Time is of the essence in this campaign, as players must complete objectives, and take out Genestealers as quickly as possible. To aid players in the race against the clock, Bulkhead Doors are introduced, which enable terminators to completely shut off certain areas.

Defilement of Honour

Space Hulks do not move through space on their own power; but are pushed by the winds and tides of warspace. The Defilement of Honour is different, with a partially functioning engine room and an ancient navigational device in control of its course. The Blood Angels, must shut down the engines before they can destroy the Space Hulk. This campaign comes as maps featuring Air Ducts, which can only be entered by Genestealers.

About Space Hulk

Space Hulk is a 3D digital turn based strategy game that recreates the classic claustrophobic board game experience for single player and multiplayer cross-platform play between PC, Mac and iOS. Set in the isolated corridors and tomb-like chambers of an ancient vessel lost in the graveyard of space, players lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers. Based on the "Sin of Damnation" campaign from the 3rd edition board game, Space Hulk includes a robust 12-mission single-player campaign. Recreating the tense battles of the board game, multiplayer mode allows players to go head-to-head with one player controlling the Space Marines and their opponent, the Genestealers, in the ultimate fight for domination. Cross platform functionality in multiplayer mode allows players to compete against friends whether they play on PC, Mac or mobile.

The new add-ons for Space Hulk are available for $4.99 each.

Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

GameBanshee has posted a new review of Overhaul Games' Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. The game includes the original Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and the Throne of Bhaal expansion, as well as four new party members, a variety of new areas to explore, the new Black Pits 2: Gladiators of Thay arena combat adventure, and a host of bug fixes and performance improvements.

From the review:

The new character added to the mix is Hexxat, an evil-aligned female thief. Personally, I found her to be much more interesting and better-written than the other three. There's actually a pretty entertaining and well-guarded twist on her character that is revealed during her storyline, and it's nice to have an evil-aligned character who isn't a bloodthirsty lunatic, insane necromancer or self-centered jerk. While I always felt going good was a natural choice in Baldur's Gate II, with a character like Hexxat the argument for following an evil alignment is a bit more compelling.
