Hotfix 1.06



Greetings Brothers!

We're pleased to release our first update for Space Hulk: Deathwing.

The main goal of this first patch was to eliminate any game breaking bugs, crashes and severe FPS drops. We hope many of you are now better able to enjoy the game! That said, we’re aware that some players are experiencing occasional lobby connection errors and performance issues, and that’s our current focus as we continue to read your messages on social media.

As always, your feedback is valuable for us to resolve any technical issues as soon as possible. You can report your issues in the technical section of the official forum. We’d also recommend consulting our Technical FAQ, Gameplay Tips and Known Issues & helpful workarounds threads.

Space Hulk: Deathwing - Hotfix 1.06 - 231MB

  • Various performance optimizations (this is also an ongoing process).
  • Inventory crash (in multiplayer) fixed.
  • Major FPS drop on Chapter 1 experienced by AMD processors fixed.
  • Input loss upon door interaction in multiplayer fixed.
  • Potential crash using NVIDIA graphics card fixed.
  • Multiplayer connection timeout increased, allowing more modest systems greater time to connect.
Please note that the update process opens the game file, meaning you need approximately 32GB of temporary free disk space in the Steam directory to update the game. Free some space if the update is stuck.

The last 5% of the download are the rewriting of the 32GB file which makes it appear stuck but it is actually processing and may take a while.

Space Hulk: Deathwing is now available!



Greetings Brothers,

Space Hulk: Deathwing is now available!

We're pleased to release Space Hulk: Deathwing after 4 years of development, and we'd like to thank you once again for your help during the beta phases. Your feedback has been incredibly useful for exterminating a wide range of Heretical bugs, and to implement improvements!

Here are some of the highlights with regards to bug-fixes and improvements in the release version:

  • Much faster loading times
    • Loading times are reduced by rougly 40-50% on average.
  • • Huge performance increase
    • The game should run more smoothly in most situations across all hardware.
  • Crash Fixes & Massive debug
    • The vast majority of crashes and bugs from the Beta have been fixed.
  • GUI improvements
    • The GUI has been updated according to Beta players' feedback.
  • Balancing
    • Changes regarding some multiplayer classes and difficulty values.
  • Localization improvements & debugging
    • Localization is almost final. Added some indications on the tutorial keybinds.
  • SFX Iteration
    • Belial and Librarian voices have been updated according to Beta players' feedback.
  • Controller debugging
    • Controllers aren't officially supported at release. Controllers previously corrupted keybindings. This is no longer the case, and the controller mapping has been updated. We're not 100% satisfied yet with controller support, and we strongly advise you to play with keyboard and mouse for now.
  • New Optional Multiplayer Game Mode: Codex Rules
    • Class change during mission disabled.
    • Equipment changing during mission disabled.
    • Progression and XP system deactivated, with access to all equipment unlocked from the start.
    • All skills and equipment are unlocked from the start.
    • Respawn is limited.

Our main priority was to have a smooth release with no game breaking bugs preventing you from purging the Space Hulk. As with every game launch, certain bugs may still remain. Please read our technical FAQ and Gameplay Tips.

We’ll continue to listen to our community as we support the game into the future! Keep talking to us, Brothers, we’re listening!

Have fun purging the Xenos tide!

The Emperor Protects!

About This Game

Space Hulk: Deathwing is a First-Person Shooter experience based on Games Workshop's classic Space Hulk boardgame set in the universe of Warhammer 40,000. Space Hulk: Deathwing was developed on Unreal Engine 4, and offers you and up to three of your friends the chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk. You also gain skills, new abilities, and new equipment as you earn experience during missions.

Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos. Made up of gigantic, mangled asteroids, ship wrecks, and other stellar debris, they can grow to the size of a moon, and often contain treasured and ancient lost technologies. They are often also infested with broods of the lethal Genestealer.

In the game you take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most feared Space Marine forces: the Deathwing of the Dark Angels Chapter.

As a Librarian, you can also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance in battle grant you Fervor Points to spend on 3 skill trees, allowing you to improve your abilities and unlock new powers.

Don your Terminator armour and arm yourself with the iconic weaponry of the Space Marines and face the threats that await you in the Space Hulk.
