The video game adaptation of Space Hulk is now available to buy on Steam, where it’ll set you back a cool $29.99.

The game includes the “Sin of Damnation” single-player campaign, as well as asynchronous multiplayer that works cross-platform between PC, Mac and even iOS. A brief in-game trailer has also been released, which you can find below.

UPDATE: Stoibs points out in the comments below that the developers are considering adding 2/3/4-player bundles to the store. So if you’re keen on multiplayer with some friends, it might be worth holding off for a bit.

Space Hulk is one of the seven new Games Workshop licensed titles announced, including the upcoming PC RTS Armageddon, the MMO Eternal Crusade and the just-announced Chainsaw Warrior single-player title.

Love the tagline below the pic :P

Saddens me to not see this at all on the first page of Steam’s bestsellers.

EDIT: Just readin the discussion area on steam, the devs are talking about maybe including a 2/3/4 pack option. Might be worth holding off for that since it will have co-op/multiplayer aswell.

Am I the only one that thinks $30 is a bit much? Expected it more in the $10-$20 category.

Yeah despite hanging out for this, im inclined to agree. I was expecting more around the 20-25 mark – and it is a bit laughable, only being $5.00 more, but it does look like a budget title.

Then again, I also picked up Wargame: Airland Battle for $30 – and that game is brilliant.

I’ll be buying this regardless, have been hanging out for a Space Hulk remake for years. The chance to purge my mates face with righteous flame in vs is going to be too good.

The level of polish/quality just doesn’t seem very high… I dunno. I’ll probably bargain bin it later.

 

In a world of Steam sales and bundle deals, correlating gaming value with dollar value is impossible.

 

I’d think the main reason for the price would be the cost of the License . I can’t imagine getting an official 40k license would be cheap, but then again if it wasn’t named “Space Hulk” would this game have even made most peoples radar? Compared with a lot of other games with standard US based pricing it does seem a bit high, but when you look at it against some of the Australian price-gouged games it’s really quite reasonable.

it just depends on how you want to look at it, it’s overpriced, but it’s cheap, none of that really matters. Is it a good game? That’s what counts to me.

 

But ultimately – 30 bucks is pretty cheap – you cant even buy two movie tickets for that these days, and add extra lol onto that price if you buy anything from the snack bar. If i get over 4 hours entertainment from it, it’s been cheaper than sitting through two movies.

Nope, lots of people in the discussions were also expecting it cheaper.
Could wait to see if it goes for sale at GmG or wait for one of these multi buys I suppose.

Personally I was one of the people pleading to Full Control to let me add $30-$40 as an addon to help their Jagged Alliance Kickstarter to receive this aswell, so I’m fine with the price as is.

 

$30 seems fine to me. Sadly I wished it was a higher budget title. I want it to be first person too.

 

Honestly not willing to shell out 30 dollars for what basically looks like an unpolished direct remake of the old game I already have.

Call me shallow, but even the logo puts me off, it looks like it belongs on someone’s Geocities page.
