Official promo artwork for Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition

Space Hulk: Deathwing had a lot of potential behind it, but unfortunately it launched with a whole bunch of bugs and gameplay problems, problems that just made it feel far too underwhelming. With that in mind, I am now delighted to say that the developers have finally released an Enhanced Edition on both PC and PS4, bringing with it solutions to many of the community's complaints.

What this means in gameplay terms is that the Enhanced Edition has introduced a variety of new weapons, the Chaplain as a new playable class, new enemy types and the "highly-replayable" Special Missions mode, as well as the ability to go in-depth with class customization. Perhaps most importantly, all of these features have been added to the PC version for free, while also serving as base content for the newly launched PS4 version!

While the recently posted trailer won't exactly give you much in terms of details, it will at least show you what the new and improved Space Hulk: Deathwing looks like. Have a gander, it's quite a short but sweet video:

I haven't played the Enhanced Edition myself, but so far the impressions seem to be quite positive. There are still plenty of bugs to contend with, both alien and technical in nature, but it really does look like the developers have addressed most of the community criticisms. Whether it's now finally worth the €40 asking price, that I'll leave for you to decide.

You can learn more about Space Hulk: Deathwing and its Enhanced Edition by visiting either Steam or the official website. Have fun!
