What is Deadly Premonition?
Deadly Premonition is a horror game that puts us into the role of Francis York Morgan, who comes to Greenvale to investigate the murder of a young woman, called Anna Graham, seemingly another victim of ritual killings similar to many others across the country.
Deadly Premonition though is diverse from horror games of norm as it includes several different elements which aren’t usually associated with the genre. For starters Greenvale is free to roam and explore, with no linearity, players can play secondary missions as well as the main one. Players will play with a behind the shoulder perspective throughout this survival horror.
A day and night cycle also occurs within the game and the characters of the world will move about accordingly following their schedule, as well as meaning that several locations are only open at certain times.
There is also a weather system that occurs and with many collectibles scattered around the city though you won’t be able to do any of this if you don’t take care of York, who needs to be taken care of throughout the game and another difference from horror games norm is that you’ll be able to drive your own personalised car.
The game is very story driven, bringing to mind such games as Fahrenheit or Heavy Rain and it’ll be up to you to explore locations, discovering clues allowing you to reconstruct the sequence of events that led to the murder.
What’s coming with the Director’s Cut?
The Director’s Cut comes with updated graphics, updated controls, many new improvements, DLC as well as pre order bonuses and additional scenarios, as well as PS move and Stereoscopic support.
So if you want to play Deadly Premonition and never got the chance, Playstation users be sure to grab this divisive game coming out very soon!
