D4: Dark Dreams Don’t Die, the first episode in a new time-travel murder mystery from Deadly Premonition creator Swery, will be available tomorrow. Players will be able to swap between the controller or Kinect, with the latter offering a way to merge player and protagonist David Young with facial recognition and gesture replication. Kinect can be used while seated, or not at all. A ranking system will also show how the player’s moral compass aligned by comparing their actions to other players’ at the end of each episode.
The last round of downloadable content has launched for Drakengard 3. Over six weapon and outfit packs as well as a prologue and a theme pack are now available on PSN, and each is detailed below. Several of the packs were pre-order bonuses or are from the Collector’s Edition, including three alternate color schemes for Zero, an outfit based off of Caim’s from Nier, a costume based from Nier’s outfit in the Japan-only Nier Replicant, and even a Giant Baby head for Mikhail styled after the bizarre creatures in the first Drakengard. One’s Prologue, formerly a CE exclusive, is also available, which helps to flesh out backstory behind all the bloody mayhem.

The PC version includes all of the extra content and updates added for the PS3 version as well as Steam achievements and trading cards, reworked controls, improved textures, a new scenario, and access to upcoming PC-only DLC.
The first round of downloadable content has been released for Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut. The drops, detailed below, are packed with new outfits, new cars, and vehicle skins.
