Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch Also Has an Enhanced Edition

Starting out as an iOS title, Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch is a top-down, turn-based strategy game featuring the Deathwatch Space Marines. The Deathwatch are special in that only the best Space Marines may join their ranks. The story follows the Deathwatch as they take on the Tyranids, bio-mechanical super-predators.

Rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4, with shiny new shaders and lighting, Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch – Enhanced Edition is a PC exclusive redux of the original mobile game. Strangely, the game’s being toted as a way to fill the turn-based strategy hole left by XCOM 2’s delay later this Fall. It’s not too encouraging to see Deathwatch intentionally offered as a replacement.

The game does look pretty, so maybe there is more to it than just a time sink. Check out the game’s Enhanced Edition Trailer below, Warhammer 40,000: Deathwatch – Enhanced Edition is out October 20 for PC via Steam.
