Deadly Premonition gets PS3 release date
Oddball adventure, Deadly Premonition, is coming to PS3 as a Director's Cut...
We knew Deadly Premonition was set to return, to polarise a whole new audience of gamers, and now we know the release date for the western market. April 26 will see the Director's Cut of the game arrive on PlayStation 3 in Europe, whilst America will get it on April 30.
The Director's Cut, which will be exclusive to the PS3, will feature improved visuals, reworked controls and new gameplay content, including a new scenario. There's also going to be some form of bonus DLC for pre-order through select retailers (Game and Amazon in the UK, Gamestop and Amazon in America), though it's not known what this will be at the moment.
If you missed it when it was released on Xbox 360 in 2010, Deadly Premonition is a distinctly different survival horror thick with strange characters, creepy foes and plenty of quirks. Some see it as a terrible game full of questionable voice acting and sluggish gameplay, and others see it as a refreshingly different adventure, and consider the quirkiness and rough edges to make the game as good as it is.
One thing's for sure, you'll play few games like it, and this alone can make it worth a try. Now that there's a Director's Cut on the way, it's as good a time as any.
