Microids said today that they are releasing a “major update” for XIII Remake along with a new Nintendo Switch version.
The update comes nearly two years after the botched launch of XIII Remake, which was plagued with bugs that made the game nearly unplayable. The remake was released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The original game came out on PS2, Xbox, and GameCube.
“We are fully aware and terribly sorry that the initial launch of XIII Remake on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC did not reach players’ expected quality standards. A bit more than a year ago we took the decision to hire the studio Tower Five to finish the development of the game,” Microids CEO Stéphane Longeard says.
“We really wanted to take the time to fix the game and offer owners of XIII Remake a free update paying the best possible tribute to the original game we all love,” he adds.
Here’s what you can expect from the new update, according to Microids:
Owners of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions will receive a free update and enjoy the game as intended. The development studio reworked the entire game from the Art Direction to the AI and added numerous technical improvements. Finally, Tower Five implemented the highly awaited online multiplayer mode for up to 13 players.
Both the free update and the Nintendo Switch version are slated to launch on September 13.
