Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels is the sequel to the Space Hulk video game adaptation. It is developed by Key Game and published by Electronic Arts.
The Blood Angels had detected a space hulk on a collision course with a planet. The hulk was inhabited by a Genestealer cult (which also consists of hybrids) and several Chaos Terminators of the Iron Warriors. A squad of Blood Angel Terminators was sent to set the hulk's course back to the Warp before it's too late.
There are some differences of gameplay compared to the original one. In the initial stages of the game, the player controls a Terminator and simply obeys the orders they are given. As missions are successfully completed, the player increases in rank and can then give orders to other members of their squad. As well as the main campaign, the game features training missions and recreations of historic battles.
The game included all the missions from the Space Hulk (1st Edition) rulebook, as well as the missions from the original game. The PC version came with 2 CD-ROM discs, which allowed for multiplayer games over a network. While the multiplayer was called "deathmatch" it was still a cooperative multiplayer game, where Terminators compete to kill the most Genestealers.
