Space Hulk: Deathwing – Latest update adds Special Missions

Streum On Studio has released a new patch for Space Hulk: Deathwing. According to the press release, 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.

This update will be auto-downloaded from Steam, and below you can find its full release notes.
