Last year's entry to the 1985 dungeon-crawling classic series, Gauntlet, is releasing on the PlayStation 4 and getting a huge PC update today in what the developers are calling the Slayer Edition.

The update promises to enhance gameplay depth, variation and visual fidelity, making the Slayer Edition the best version of the game to date. You can view the Launch Trailer below.
