Fans of immersive, engaging narrative are being spoiled by today’s news. Following on from the half-reveal of the next Alan Wake, we have news of a retail refresh for Heavy Rain.
The Director’s Cut version of the game will go on sale in the US next week for just thirty of your newfangled colonial dollars. That’s less than a third of a Benjamin, if those rappers taught me anything about maths.
It features the game, of course, as well as a plethora of extra content. The Taxidermist DLC, official score (which is brilliant) and the eight “making of” videos are probably highlights for most people. There will also be three dynamic themes, 15 new pieces of concept art, two bonus trailers and a new menu front end that’s fully Move compatible.
There’s no word of a UK/EU release as yet but hopefully it sells strongly in the US and we get to see it here too. The more people that get to play this kind of game, the better.
