Something is coming, like a bent-over-backwards-ghost-with-gaping-holes-where-its-eyes-and-mouth-should-be. That’s awfully specific, but then again, this is about Deadly Premonition so I guess we have some idea of what’s coming. The Xbox 360 exclusive will be one no longer on April 30, 2013. That’s when a special, director’s cut version of the game will be released for PS3 owners to enjoy. Ha ha, Xbox 360 owners! You may have gotten Deadly Premonition first, but we’re getting it best!
Yes, I swear that made sense. Trust me.
Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut is an enhanced version of the original Deadly Premonition from February 2010. It’s also a case where “director’s cut” really means “director’s cut.” PS3 owners aren’t just getting a prettier version of the game, though all the graphics are HD now. It’s getting a game that’s just better. The standard controls have been optimized and Move controls have been included for people who dig the peripheral. It also will be easier, have new scenarios for special agent York to investigate in Greenvale and a new ending.
Also included in the Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut release is DLC support. Yes, Access Games and Rising Star Games will be bringing us even more content. We can then decide if the extra cool stuff is worth our time and money or not. I can’t even tell you what the DLC could possibly be, because North America and Europe are the first regions scheduled to receive this version of the game. It could be something silly like costumes, or it could be something awesome like even more eerie investigations for York.
If you’re interested, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut could be worth the risk. The original received mixed reviews, sure, but this version will have lots of extras and be only $39.99 when it makes its April debut. It could be worth the gamble.
