PC and consoles now have access to the Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition

A classic adventure remastered by Nightdive

One of Westwoods classics has been enhanced and updated, this time for modern hardware. It is now available for PC and consoles.

This remastered version of the 1997 adventure classic has been placed on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles, as well as on the Nintendo Switch. The Limited Run version is also being available in physical versions.

Although Westwood may be well known for its history in the real-time strategy genre, it was its surprise adventure hit. It runs alongside the Ridley Scott film, weaving through the events of the film. It has toy paths though, and has been well-remembered for both its design and its technique.

Remastered dreams of electric sheep

Nightdive, the studio that has used other remasters like, has put a few modern touches on. Since its introduction to consoles, gamepad support is evident.

The original Westwood footage has been enhanced to 4K resolution and 60 frames per second. There is also a HD display, and a new clue interface. Plus, international fans may use the original foreign-language translations in Spanish, German, French, Italian, and Chinese subtitles.

On launch day, users on Steam are voting it into the Mostly Negative tier. Rock Paper Shotgun was also a fan of this concept, as well as other options, and provided some excellent comparison screenshots.

On GOG, there is another version of the original just for PC. If your impressions of theare are similar, you can at least choose that one.
