Publisher Microids has announced that 2020's maligned XIII remake will be getting a big free update this September.
In a rather bold move, Microids has moved development of the XIII remake away from PlayMagic, and instead entrusted French studio Tower Five with working on the project. The result is this update, which has been in the works for over a year, and should help players “enjoy the game as intended”.
“The development studio reworked the entire game from the Art Direction to the AI and added numerous technical improvements,” reads the official announcement.
You can see a full list of the changes coming to XIII on Xbox down below.
XIII launched on Xbox One in November 2020 and was heavily criticised for its extensive number of bugs and glitches, while it also pared back the original game's cel-shaded artwork, leading Microids and original developer PlayMagic to apologise for the state of the game at the time.
With this new update, it will be interesting to see how much of a difference it will make to the game's art style, and whether this can really turn around the fate of the much-maligned remake. The update will be launching across all platforms on 13th September 2022.
