Space Hulk: Ascension Edition
« on: September 2, 2014, 09:05:13 AM »
Hi,

I'm Andreas, Community Manager at Full Control and I wanted to share some additional content about Space Hulk: Ascension Edition, which we announced in the beginning of August.

If you missed the announcement trailer, you can find it on Youtube (Space Hulk Ascension Edition) I unfortunately can't get the embed function to work.

I wanted to share some more content from the game along the way, so I hope it's fine I make a post here:

For this new version we're adding Combi Weapons: Combi-Flamer, Combi-Plasma and a Combi-Melta

The Combi-Flamer will have 2 flame shots, which is good to have when there's a hoard of Genestealers coming at you.

The Combi-Plasma can only be wielded by sergeants and should only be used as last resort as it can backfire - Unless you like to gamble :)

The Combi-Melta pretty much destroys everything in its way but also has a very limited ammo.




If it's fine with the mods, I'll pop in and share more info once it's ready :)

Sounds cool to me but I would say you might wanna take a look at those weapons again if you're trying to keep them like the ones on models. You're combi weapons don't appear to have barrels for the bolter.

I will let the guy making them know, but they are approved by Games Workshop  ;)

I just think it's the angle of the camera that covers the barrel for the bolter

Is the muzzle of the bolter on the right side of the weapon then?  Because otherwise, there is no barrel for them at all.
If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.

Once again I have more goodies to share with the community 

We have been playing around with sound effects and animations for SHA and I'd like to share two of the examples with you in here:

http://www.spacehulk-ascension.com/public/images/uploads/Melee_attack_audio_example1.avi

http://www.spacehulk-ascension.com/public/images/uploads/Melee_attack_audio_example2.avi

These are the only ones I currently have with sound, but looking over the should of the animator there's a lot more to come ...and yes the muzzle of the gun is on the right side of the combi weapons.

For Space Hulk Ascension Edition, we'll also be adding Relic Weapons, which means you can look cool while causing more havoc.

Thanks for sharing that link, was about to share it here as well :)

We've also just shared some images of two Genestealer Bio-morphs. one with Scythes and one with FleshHooks:

A Genestealer with Scythes is a mean killing machine and therefore has additional attacks


 

A Genestealer with Flesh Hooks has the ability to drag in Terminators in true Scorpion, from Mortal Combat, style, so don't get too close.

We're currently working on a developer diary that explains some of the diferences between Space Hulk and Space Hulk Ascension.

In the meantime, I wanted to share this neat animation.
