While the thought of The Incredible Hulk jumping from planet to planet, crushing puny things along the way, is certainly appealing, Space Hulk is entirely different. It's a 3D, turn-based strategy game from independent studio Full Control, set in the Warhammer 40K universe and based on the original board game from 1989.

Space Hulk follows the "Sin of Damnation" campaign from the third edition board game and puts players in the boots of a Space Marine squad as they fight to survive against an alien race called Genestealers, within the confines of a derelict ship abandoned long ago. There will be single-player and multiplayer in Space Hulk, the latter even offering cross-platform play between PC, Mac and iOS users. An included editor will allow players to create their own levels and share them with the community.

Space Hulk will launch sometime in 2013, and developer Full Control has already promised future expansions and DLC for after the game is released.
