    It's confirmed: The new version will support 4K resolution, a modernized interface and remastered soundtrack, and updates "curated" by Chris Avellone, the lead designer on the original.

    It's too soon to determine anything of value.

    No new content, huh. Not sure how I feel about that. I certainly wouldnt want them to touch the story. But some more enemies to smash mighta been nice.

    I certainly wouldn't mind the cut content being restored, not sure if they're saving that for an optional addon or DLC later on...

    Well, it's not so much an "if". There's no doubt it's gonna get updated. Hell, if no one else will, I'll do it. :shake:

    It does seem odd that they decided not to include it. I guess Avellone wasn't happy with the state of things, so he preferred for it to stay cut by default?

    Without any resources to fall back on, you would have to remodel the scenes used for the videos for scratch, including not only terrain and objects, but also character models that will need rigging for them to move around in the scene properly. Would be a pretty involved project actually, considering that modeling a single thing can be a days work.

    Which is why I said "relatively speaking". You have to take into account that you already have all the sound work, scenes, and templates done. All that remains is basically the creature models (what few there are) and a bunch of textures, which don't really have to be particularly impressive to match the original videos, plus the very short animations which were never that complex to begin with. Replicating the videos shouldn't be a monumental endeavor, although improving upon them could drag out the project to many months.

    Wow, that's very generous of them. Or rather, at least helps to somewhat justify the crazy price on the SoD CE.

    No amount of pandering will wash away the bitter taste at this point.
