Shortly after Space Hulk: Deathwing originally launched on PC in December of 2016 to lukewarm reception, its developers promised that an Enhanced Edition that would fix some problems and add a ton of new content was on its way for both PC and consoles. Today, developer Streum On Studio and Focus Home Interactive announced that Space Hulk: Deathwing – Enhanced Edition would be releasing on PC and PS4 on May 22.
Space Hulk: Deathwing – Enhanced Edition will actually be available for free to those who already own the game on PC. That being said, the previously promised Xbox One version was not mentioned at all in the press release, so it is currently unknown whether or not the game will come to Microsoft’s console.
For those of you who are curious about what exactly Space Hulk: Deathwing – Enhanced Edition brings to the table when compared to the base game, there are new enemy types, weapons, and missions alongside a new class and some new customization options.
First off, a Class Customization system has been implemented to let players constantly unlock new armor and weapon skins, attachments, perks for whatever class they decide to play as. The developers also promised that these upgrades are only earned in-game, and can’t be bought through microtransactions.
The Chaplain class, who specializes in melee combat and helping his allies survive, has also been added. Special missions with randomized objectives have been included to give the game some extra replayability. This works in tandem with the newly implemented weapons and enemies to create an experience that will keep players more engaged than before.
