Update 5 and Enhanced Edition Announcement
Community Manager

Greetings Brothers,

The fifth update is now live for Space Hulk: Deathwing!

This new update kicks off the countdown to Space Hulk: Deathwing's Enhanced Edition for PS4 and PC on May 22nd, 2018.

This edition will add exciting new content and features for players who dare enter the Genestealer-infested Space Hulk – all of which will be included in a series of free content updates for PC players.

This latest patch focuses on more gameplay variety by introducing the Special Missions game mode to multiplayer.

Special Missions, which have been added to Chapter 1 but are coming later to every chapter in the game, bring a new level of uncertainty for even the most hardened Terminator squads. Starting a chapter will generate a randomized sequence of missions and Genestealer spawns for a truly unpredictable challenge.

We are also excited to share a glimpse of just a few of the upcoming features players can look forward to in the Enhanced Edition:

  • Full multiplayer progression system with loot and class customization
  • New multiplayer class
  • New weapon and skills
  • New enemies

Here is today's patch notes:

New

  • Special Missions arrives in chapter 1 in multiplayer!
  • Played in the existing maps, players must successfully achieve different objectives randomly chosen.
  • Genestealer variations have been added - more scale and shading diversity!

Gameplay

  • Apothecary cooldowns in multiplayer are longer if you do not have the Narthecium.
  • Narthecium heal cooldown set to 60s.
  • When playing a “hold the position” objective, you have to stay in the siege area (automatic defeat outside the area after some time).

Bugfix

  • Fix of a possible block when opening the inventory as a guest player.
  • Fix some rare cases of bad behaviour or pathfinding (stuck Genestealer).
  • Fix of a rare case when you could be stuck in an empty lobby.
  • Multiple graphical glitches fixes.
  • Multiple controller menu fixes.
  • Multiple GUI and menu fixes.
  • Fix of a potential blocking issue with saves created during the first objective of chapter 7.
  • Fix of a potential block occurring when loading a save at the end of chapter 4.
  • Fix of issues related to dialogues being played when loading a save.
  • Fix of an issue occurring during a dialogue with the slomo option.
  • Fix of an issue where the player was losing SFX when loading a save during a dialogue with the slomo option.
  • Fix of an issue when saving with a jammed weapon.
  • Fix of a potential blocking issue occurring when issuing many inputs on the inventory menu with a controller.
  • Performance improvement in the psygate.
  • Fix of a potential blocking issue when loading a save inside the torpedoes in the chapter 1.
  • Fix of a SFX issue after locking a door.
  • Fix of a bug allowing players to unlock doors without being near them.

Known Issues

  • Crash DirectX is still being worked on.
  • When joining an already started multiplayer game, you can see the partially unloaded chapter during 2/3sec.
  • If joining at the very moment host launch the game, you enter the chapter with lobby menu overlapping the game. (Multiplayer only)
  • If you try to join a full server, you will be connected to a different one with an available spot instead.
  • Some attacks on the hold position of the C.A.T in the chapter 8 will not launch properly.
  • When an objective is finished in multiplayer, it might stop the current action of a guest player.
  • Zoom sensitivity has been changed from the previous build, let us know what you think about it!

@netheos Hi guys, I received an email this week stating the Ps4 launch for Space hulk death wing will be pushed back to may 2018?? From December to March.... now May.
Can someone please give me some info why 2 deadlines for release have been missed?

I can see on other forums/chats the lack of communication to fans on what's happening with the game. It doesn't take much for someone to write a quick statement to at least let us fans know (who are buying/bought the game) Whoever in charge of community relations should be sacked and sent into the warp.

Hello, we didn't announce a release date yet. Retailer dates (such as Amazon) are placeholder. The announcement of the official release date will come from the official Space Hulk: Deathwing channels, and will be posted on this forum as well.

Good early morning! I was wondering if there has been any news what so ever on when the enhanced edition is coming out. I pre-ordered the game and have played it repeatedly, I have to say over all it is a great game. I only ask because it has seemed that with the push back of the enhanced edition more and more people are moving away and i do not want to see this game die like most warhammer 40k games. Please a little bit of information goes a long way!

Development is on-going. We just finished a Closed Beta with some players and we're happy with the feedback gathered and progress made. We'll announce a date when we'll be ready. Have a nice day!
