Nightdive Studios has released a trailer for Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition showing off some of the game’s updated cutscenes.
Described as a “polished and premium restoration” of Westwood Studios’ 1997 point-and-click adventure game, Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition was announced in March for release this year.
In development for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (Steam), the title includes updated character models, animations and cutscenes, widescreen support, customisable controls and original foreign language translations.
Featuring an original, non-linear story which runs parallel to the plot of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner film, the game sees players step into the shoes of detective Ray McCoy, who’s on the hunt for rogue replicants in the neon-and-rain-soaked Los Angeles of 2019.
It includes over 100 interactive environments, more than 70 motion-captured characters, plus recreated cuts from the original Blade Runner soundtrack.
The classic Blade Runner game was released digitally for the first time in December 2019, 22 years after its original release.
Earlier this year, Nightdive’s head of business development Larry Kuperman told The Hollywood Reporter that while the original Blade Runner source code was lost, the studio had “painstakingly reverse-engineered the code” and imported it to its KEX engine to create the Enhanced Edition.
