Deadly Premonition: The Director's Cut box art

Rising Star Games has announced the release date for Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut. The updated rendition for the Twin Peaks-inspired psychological thriller, by Hidetaka “SWERY” Suehiro, will be releasing in North America on April 30th, exclusively for the PlayStation 3.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut will be releasing in Europe at a slightly earlier time, as it is slated for launch on April 26th.

Rising Star has listed some updates that are to be seen in Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut:

  • New Scenario – “Surprising” new scenario from the game’s director.
  • HD graphics – “Complete graphic overhaul” with new HD textures
  • Improved Controls – Reworked control system and mappable controls.
  • DLC – Post-game DLC. “Let Agent York (and Zach) live it up in Greenvale – Details TBA”.

Some of these updates should provide some convenience, as intentionally tank controls and convoluted plot have made this game divisive. You can read more about them in the Press Release found here. Sounds pretty good, right?

Deadly Premonition

North American buyers who pre-order Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut between now and April 30th at select retailers, including Amazon and Gamestop, will receive free downloadable content. European buyers, however, will receive 30 days of free PlayStation Plus access upon purchasing at launch; but this offer is only for a limited-run release, and applies to a first-come-first-serve basis.

Additionally, UK buyers can earn free downloadable content upon pre-ordering at GAME or Amazon UK, similar to North America.

This looks to be a very exciting time for fans of Deadly Premonition, as this game remains relevant in people’s minds long after its initial run in 2010. As games such as this only satisfies a peculiar niche, and are both rare and bold in design, Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut should be supported as strongly as possible.

Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut is slated to release in North America at April 30th, and Europe in April 26th by Rising Star Games.

  • Is this game actually any good? All I know of it was when someone gave it to someone else on a podcast I listen to and they just went on about how bad it was.

    • It’s very mixed. Some people absolutely love it, while others hate it. It’s not a perfect game, it certainly has its flaws, and it’s kind of weird. In the end, it all boils down to taste. If the idea of a “Twin Peaks: The Game” possibly appeals to you, give it a try. There’s a Let’s Play out in the LP Archive, which might also be worthwhile looking into. I know I’ll be hoping to get it.
