Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy remastered comes out 29 Jan

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy remastered comes out 29 Jan

Rumours of Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy’s return have turned out to be true; Aspyr Media will be releasing a remastered version on PC tomorrow (29 Jan). Since David Cage’s game had different titles in Europe and the US, they’ve just combined the two into one longer title.

I’ve not played the original, but Tim assures me that it’s “great … for the first two hours.” Then he started talking about Mayans and “the Purple Clan.”

Anyway, it’s a David Cage/Quantic Dream game from 2005 so I’m sure it’ll have a least one lady walking around an apartment in a white tank top and panties.

According to the nice and extensive FAQ about this new edition, Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy will be the fully uncensored international version, with “no cut content.” New to the remastered version will be fancy pants HD graphics (increased texture detail and image resolution,) uncropped widescreen, full controller support on PC, and the ability to seamlessly switch between old and remastered graphics.

Aspyr Media apparently did all the technical leg work on this, but had “invaluable feedback” from Quantic Dream during the process.

The “Buy Now” button in the top right corner of the main page confirms that the game will be available from Thursday (ie; 29 January.) None of the purchasing links are up at the time of writing, so I’m unsure how much it’ll cost.

Here’s a launch trailer though, and the PC system specs:

      Now that’s a cashgrab.

      They ‘leaked’ the US pricing on Amazon a couple days earlier, it was $9.99, so might go somewhere around the £8.99 mark I assume.

      It looks the same as the original. Am I missing something?

      I was thinking the same thing. I didn’t notice any “remastering”. Marketing can be tricky, but maybe what they did is to release the game on higher resolution for the consoles, where for PC resolution was never an issue. Maybe added Antializing? We will see on the reviews I guess…
      Overall, I love that game 🙂

      Great, unique game.
