Copenhagen, Denmark – December 18th, 2014 — Independent developer Full Control today announced that the first expansion for Space Hulk: Ascension is available now to download for PC, Mac and Linux on Steam. The Imperial Fists Expansion unlocks the Imperial Fists Chapter and brings 15 new unique story missions and 20 flash missions for players to conquer in Space Hulk: Ascension. Based on the best-selling board game set within the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk: Ascension, is a 3D digital turn based strategy game, that features reworked mechanics and a host of new features, including RPG progression mechanics, new Genestealer variations, new rules, and mission structures.
“We can’t wait for our fans to experience all the new content.” said Thomas Hentschel Lund, CEO of Full Control. “On top of the new missions, the Tarantula Turret adds a whole new layer of strategy to the game. We think players will relish the opportunity to test it out!”
The primary objective of the Imperial Fists, is to prevent the Genestealers breaking through a defense zone and attacking the flank of the beachhead. As the main campaign expands, the Terminators slowly cleanse areas of the Space Hulk to prevent the Genestealers from building a larger force. Meanwhile, hidden in the Space Hulk, the Genestealers have started massing into a vast force. During the campaign the Imperial Fists are armed with the ferocious Tarantula Turret; a powerful automated weapons platform that can decimate the Genestealer hordes in seconds.
The Imperial Fists Expansion is now available on Steam for $7.99/€7.99/£5.59:
