I knew it was only a matter of time for the latest Gauntlet title to make it over to the consoles from PC and it looks like the first leap is with Gauntlet: Slayer Edition coming to the PS4. It only took about a year but Arrowhead Game Studio and Warner Bros. has been able to bring the dungeon brawler to a larger audience on August 11th. That would be the day that Gauntlet: Slayer Edition is launching on the PS4 just in case you couldn't make that leap of logic. That shouldn't be a too drastic of a leap for many of us but it just seems like it needed to be added in here just to be safe. Safe being something we are not in the game filled with traps and horrors in the deep depths of the dungeons.
Of course it wouldn't be that huge of a deal to require a new subtitle here for Gauntlet if there wasn't something new coming for this edition of the game. Of course with something like the Gauntlet: Slayer Edition you can easily make that assumption. That said it looks like we are getting to travel to an unexplored realm and encounter new hero weapons and abilities, new monster types, additional features that increase team dynamics and strategy, and new gameplay modes. Of course Arrowhead Game Studio didn't want to spoil everything here for the Gauntlet: Slayer Edition so the in-depth details for all of that will be released between now and when the game fully hits the market.
As of right now you can pre-order the Gauntlet: Slayer Edition over on the PSN for $19.99 in preparation for release. Doing so will score players in-game item codes for Mordok's Screaming Hammer and Reaper's Visage Helm for the Warrior character. That way he won't "need food badly" as often from the start of the game. That should be at least a bit more incentive to get Gauntlet: Slayer Edition and not just to pad the wallets of Warner Bros. here.
