Restored Enhanced Edition of Blade Runner Coming to Consoles, PC

Nightdive Studios will handle the updated version of this classic point-and-click sci-fi adventure in collaboration with Alcon Entertainment.

Another classic sci-fi game is about to return in the shape of a remaster. Nightdive Studios and Alcon Entertainment have confirmed that Blade Runner is due for a restored, Enhanced Edition release on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.

There's no confirmed release date yet for the classic cyberpunk point-and-click title. The original '90s release trailer can be seen here, and anyone in need of a nostalgic blast from the past right now instead of later can pick up Blade Runner through Good Old Games.

Westwood Studios, the masterminds behind the beloved Command & Conquer franchise, handled the game's development when it first released in 1997.

Nightdive Studios is also currently working on a System Shock remake due out later this year.

I recently got the chance to try out the horrifying pre-alpha first level, where I said, "In the end, I came away neither hyped nor overly disappointed after playing the demo. My gut feeling? If the development crew doesn't run out of money and actually releases a finished product, I expect it will be just all right."
