Forbidden StarsFans of the Warhammer 40,000 board game franchise will be happy to know that Fantasy Flight Games recently announced the upcoming launch a space-themed war game for the sci-fi lover in you.

Forbidden stars is set in the Herokon Cluster where factions from across the galaxy have converged to plunder for treasures and planetary claims in a section that was, until recently, surrounded by impenetrable Warp Storms.

Designed for two to four players, the game puts you in command of either the Ultramarines chapter of Space Marines, the Eldar of Craftworld Iyanden, the Evil Sunz Ork clan, or the World Eaters Warband of the Chaos Space Marines. The various factions offer different armies and play styles, so you can pick the one that best suits you.

In this heavy strategy battle game, players must plan out their scheme, but must also pay close attention to what their opponents are up to. Play special order tokens against your opponents to stop their attack or advancement. The board is constructed of 12 double-sided system tiles, each divided into void spaces and planets. Players move across the board along the road to war.

Forbidden Stars will be available in the third quarter of 2015 for $99.
