Check out what’s new in the freshly-released Director’s Cut of indie horror Lone Survivor.
In a lengthy blog post, creator Jasper Byrne detailed the process of porting the game to PlayStation platforms alongside Curve Studios, broke down new content and features, and said non-console users won’t have long to wait.
“The PC amd Mac release, on Steam and the game’s website, won’t be far behind. in other words, it will be out as soon as i can physically do it. It will take time as it’s not a simple port, but it is my next priority and I will have more news about this soon,” he promised.
Lone Survivor hits PS3 and Vita this week; North American users should already find it on the PlayStation Store.
