Nightdive Studios has offered a look at Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition in a new comparison trailer, putting the game's new cut-scenes side-by-side with the original versions from Westwood Studios' classic 1997 point-and-click adventure based on the seminal 1982 sci-fi movie.
Announced back in March, Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition is being positioned as a "polished and premium restoration" of the 23-year old PC title, painstakingly rebuilt using the KEX engine, with updated character models and animations, widescreen support, and customisable controls, as well as original foreign language translations.
As shown in the trailer below, the cut-scenes have also been given attention, with some of the edges smoothed out and the animations ever-so-slightly overhauled. Blade Runner features an original, non-linear narrative that runs alongside the film of the same name, albeit from the perspective of protagonist Ray McCoy, a blade runner on the hunt for rogue replicants, not unlike Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard.
Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition will be coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, but is still in development and has yet to be given a release date.
