What is that sound? That distorted surge making my eardrum cling to all hope; is that my own breath exasperating? I think it is. As I stand here in this cold and withered mausoleum it is the walls that regain my memories of the past five minutes.
Walls decorated with blood tell me of the battle I just participated in, but it is the floor, it’s the floor that tells me of the outcome. The red reservoir populated with bone and sinew speaks of a Genestealer ambush. As I spectate the carcasses, I notice familiar pieces of steel sporadically scattered throughout the turmoil.
Steel frames occupied by men, my men, noblemen now nothing more but an object amongst a clutter of death. It is I who is left standing, it is I who is alone, and it is I who is victorious.
Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition
Being a gentleman from Nottingham, it only seems right that I write a news piece about a Warhammer 40K game – this time it’s Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition.
Made by the Nottingham-based board giants Games Workshop, it happens that my best friend is a graphic designer for them as well. And no readers I can’t get you a discount.
But a long time ago I use to play Space Marines with my father along with Hero Quest (yeah, sit down board game nerds), I painted the figures with him too – my father not being too impressed when I painted one completely in gold with my child-like imagination.
So, anyway, an enhanced version of Space Hulk: Deathwing has you fight through hordes of Genestealers in claustrophobic confines that the series is known for. You gain new skills, abilities and weapons along the way in both single and multiplayer modes.
Key Features Of The Enhanced Edition Include:
- Play as a Space Marine Terminator, including a powerful new class – the Chaplain and his powerful Crozius Arcanum power mace
- Customize each class in solo and multiplayer and unlock devastating weapons, including an expanded arsenal exclusive to the Enhanced Edition
- Plunge into the Space Hulk and experience a desperate battle against the Genestealers, including new, deadlier enemies
- Special Missions bring infinite replayability to both solo and multiplayer modes, with randomly-generated objectives and enemy spawns for every game chapter
The original version received average scores at best, so hopefully, the Enhanced Edition irons out some of the kinks and makes for a more polished and overall better gaming experience. No doubt the game will be somewhat successful with Warhammer’s loyal community pushing its sales.
Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition is out on PC and PS4 now. For the Emperor!
