Independent studio Full Control is developing a Space Hulk game, Games Workshop has announced.

Based on the best-selling board game and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk will be a 3D turn-based strategy game that seeks to recreate the classic board game experience.

Based on the "Sin of Damnation" campaign from the 3rd edition board game, players will lead a small army of fearless Space Marine Terminators to battle in a ferocious fight for survival against hordes of predatory alien Genestealers.

The game will include a 12 mission singleplayer and co-op campaign.

In addition, it will support cross-platform multiplayer between Windows PC, Mac, and iOS devices.

A level editor will enable players to design their own levels and share them with others online.

“As huge fans of the Space Hulk board game and the Warhammer 40,000 universe in general, we are delighted that Games Workshop has given us the opportunity to work with this iconic license and bring our version of Space Hulk into the hands of all fans out there” said Full Control CEO Thomas Hentschel Lund.

Full Control previously developed 3D turn-based games Tactical Soldier - Undead Rising and Frontline Tactics.

Space Hulk is due out in 2013.
