Space Hulk: Deathwing

Those intending to play Space Hulk: Deathwing at launch later this week will need to make new plans. Two days before it was set to launch, developer Streum On and publisher Focus Home Interactive have announced a short delay.

Deathwing, a first-person shooter based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe, will now arrive on December 14; it was previously slated for this Friday, December 9. This move comes after a recent beta test that helped to identify various problems.

"While some of you may be disappointed, others have expressed support for allowing time to fix the remaining bugs," an announcement on Steam reads. "Most of the issues from the beta have been addressed, including drastic improvement of the loading times, optimization of the general performances, improvement of certain interface and menu elements, sound-design changes (character voices), and fix of numerous bugs and nearly all occurrences of crashes.

"We know you are eagerly waiting to purge Xenos, but we want to ensure all players can enjoy the game optimally on launch by continuing to work on the massive amount of feedback for an extra week."

Although Deathwing's release date has been updated on Steam, a special pre-launch promotional price is still set to expire on Friday at 10 AM PT. You have until then to get the $40 game for $34.
