Strange survival-horror game Deadly Premonition gets new Director's Cut

Gaming is in its golden age, and big and small players alike are maneuvering like kings and queens in A Game of Thrones. Register now for our GamesBeat 2015 event, Oct. 12-Oct.13, where we'll explore strategies in the new world of gaming.

Developer Access Games’ weird, ugly, and beloved Deadly Premonition gets new content in a rerelease for the PlayStation 3.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut brings new high-definition graphics, updated controls, new story scenarios, and postcampaign downloadable content to the 2010 release.

The plot follows FBI special agent Francis York Morgan as he investigates a murder in the fictional town of Greenvale. It gets a lot stranger than that as the hero uncovers more murders and begins to talk to an unseen character named “Zach.”

The game has a cult following who loves it for its eccentricities. Fans often apply the “it’s so bad, it’s good” badge of honor to it. Deadly Premonition also holds the rather narrowly defined Guinness World Record for “Most Critically Polarizing Survival-Horror Game,” as some reviewers loved it and others despised it.

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut does not yet have a price.
