Copenhagen, Denmark -- October 11, 2013 -- Danish development studio Full Control today revealed the first chapter expansion for Space Hulk, the 3D digital turn based strategy game based on the best-selling board game set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. Scheduled to launch in late 2013, the Space Wolves chapter expansion will includes a three missions based on the classic “Fangs of Fenris” campaign, that first introduced the ferocious warriors of the Wolf Guard into Space Hulk.

“When it came to selecting the first expansion chapter for Space Hulk we felt that the introduction the Space Wolves would be both a great addition to the game, and a nod to the fact that our studio is based in the heart of Scandinavia – the Viking kingdoms of the past”, said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control. “Devastatingly ferocious in attack and immovably resolute in defense, the Wolf Guard will be a fantastic addition to the Space Hulk universe introducing new gameplay styles and methodology into the classic turn based action”.

The three mission campaign “Fangs of Fenris” uses the elite Wolf Guard Terminators of the Space Wolves chapter. The campaign was originally posted in White Dwarf magazine #200 from 1996, and is now making the leap to the digital game. The chapter will also introduce new weapons including the Frost Blade, Frost Axe and Wolf Claws.

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.
