With remasters being a fairly significant trend in the gaming industry these days, more and more publishers are joining in, especially given the apparent success of remasters. For publisher Deep Silver, they announced that they are going to release Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
Deep Silver said Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut would be available on Oct. 13 and that it will be playable at Gamescom 2015 as well. The game is said to be receiving a complete makeover with its visuals as Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will feature “more sophisticated lighting system, upgraded environments and improved textures as well as brand new, higher quality character models.”
Audio in the game’s voice acting have apparently been redone as have “all major speaking parts and NPCs,” which now have new voice-overs. The same can be said for the weapons in the game and their sound, as they have been redone to “provide more variety and punch.”
Additionally, Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will include gameplay advances that weren’t seen in the original PC launch. Those will range from things like “combat encounters” to “enhanced cutscenes.” Deep Silver highlighted “the game’s UI and control scheme have been completely reworked and optimized for consoles,” as being more important.
Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut is currently under development at inXile and will be published by Deep Silver. Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut will be launching this coming Oct. 13 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
