Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition shows off its remastered cutscenes

Videogames | September 8, 2020

Work continues on the remaster of Westwood Studios’ 1997 point ‘n’ click adventure Blade Runner. A newly released video from developer Nightdive Studios gives fans their first look at the classic adventure’s spruced-up cutscenes.

While the late ’90s character models are present and correct, Nightdive has seemingly done a good job in making the FMV sequences crisper from a visual standpoint, with smoother edges, higher resolution, and added fluidity to their animation. Though it must be said that the shading has lost its nuance. Scenes featured in the video include the opening pet store massacre, and Rep Detect agent Ray McCoy traveling through Los Angeles circa 2019… Yeah…
