Blade Runner in a refreshed edition
Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition will debut today on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. On PC you will be able to purchase the game via Steam. In addition, you can purchase a special physical copy of the game on PS4 and Switch, thanks to the actions of the publisher - Limited Run.
The game in the remastered version has undergone a thorough facelift. The frame rate was increased from 15 to 60 fps. The game also supports HD resolution, and all cutscenes have been properly refreshed. We can also play the game with modern controllers.
The visuals of Blade Runner have been enhanced with such functions as anisotropic filtering and SMAA (subpixel morphological antialiasing). You can judge the effects of these changes by watching the video below.
Not only a remaster
Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition is not the only game using the well-known brand, which we will play. Also 110 Industries is creating a new game in the world created by Philip K. Dick.
Unfortunately, for now we do not know too much about the project. The devs only revealed that the expected release date of the game is 2025.
