Cult classic psychological horror game Deadly Premonition is finally making the move to PC, after fractured Xbox 360 and PS3 releases.
Heavily inspired by 90s TV classic Twin Peaks, Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut is a hugely divisive game that has built up a significant following over the years…
Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut is set to launch on Steam on October 31st, a very original release date we’re sure you’ll agree.
The game has you exploring the small town of Greendale as Agent York, free-roaming and engaging with the denizens of the town, in order to investigate the ritualistic murder of a young woman. Where's Agent Dale Cooper when you need him?
Often lumped into the ‘so bad it’s good’ category, Deadly Premonition has the unique honour of holding the Guiness World Record for most critically polarising survival horror game. A dubious honour at best but those fans who love it, really do love it.
The game has often been criticised for being very rough around the edges, featuring shonky controls and even shonkier graphics; but fans have learnt to look beyond this at a game that is resolutely old-school in its approach to horror, acting almost as a spiritual successor to the original Silent Hill games.
This Director’s Cut version of the game features the same updated version that released on Playstation 3 back in April, including updated visuals and added story threads. On top of this the PC version will also be getting some exclusive DLC included, the details of which have not yet been revealed.
So get a cup of steaming hot cuo o’ joe on the go and serve yourself up a delicious slice of pie ready for the release of this one.
Will you be willing to look past some of the gaping flaws with this game to give it a chance? Do you prefer the golden age of horror games or the Dead Space's of the world?
