Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition arrives on modern gaming platforms just in time to celebrate the anniversary of when the iconic science fiction film debuted 40 years ago — which was on June 25, 1982.
Originally released in 1997 by Westwood Studios, Blade Runner was one of its era’s most innovative adventure games. Long praised as a masterclass in game design for its painstaking recreation of the sci-fi cinematic masterpiece, the game delivered an unforgettable gaming experience with groundbreaking graphics, an original musical score, and an original branching narrative seamlessly interwoven with the events of Ridley Scott’s 1982 film.
Becoming widely available to a whole new generation of gamers worldwide, fans of the cult adventure game can enjoy a polished and premium restoration with the original Westwood videos reconstructed and upscaled to 4K resolution and 60 FPS, along with a variety of new features such as modern HD display, keyboard and gamepad support, and a new KIA clue interface. Nightdive has also sourced the original foreign-language translations, offering international fans the game in Spanish, German, French, and Italian, as well as Chinese subtitles — just as Westwood intended.
“Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition has been a labor of love for the Nightdive team, and one of our most requested and revered titles yet,” said Nightdive CEO Stephen Kick. “We're excited to finally share our game with fans; we expect that they'll be very pleased.”
