A couple of days ago, we unexpectedly received a nice announcement. An enhanced version of Westwood Studio’s classic adventure game Blade Runner, subtitled Enhanced Edition, will release on June 23rd. The digital version of the game will sell for $10 and will be released on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Switch (regional price tag not yet known). And today the game page appeared on Steam, it contains almost no new information, except that we now know for sure that the game will not have a translation into Russian.
The Enhanced Edition was announced back in March 2020, but then it was abruptly postponed indefinitely. Developers lure with improved cinematography, frame rate, resolution, interface, subtitle support, gamepad and anti-aliasing. The game will feature updated characters, animations, widescreen support, and redesigned controls.
Although the original game’s source code was lost, the developers were eventually able to reverse engineer it and use their own KEX Engine to upgrade it. Nightdive boss Steven Kick assured that Blade Runner is still an exciting game. So while the developers are improving the graphics and respecting the experience, he said they are defending Westwood’s original vision and gameplay. When we play the game on modern hardware, it will look and feel the way we remember it, Kik said in March 2020.
