Rising Star Games announced that Deadly Premonition is out now on Microsoft Xbox LIVE Games on Demand. Originally released in 2010, Deadly Premotion developed a cult following after receiving hugely contrasting reviews from top games publications and respected reviewers. Deadly Premonition went on to be nominated for and, in some cases, win an impressive number of awards.
Developed by Access Games, Deadly Premonition is an open-world game set in Greenvale, a secluded rural town in North West America. Playing as FBI Special Agent Francis York, gamers are charged with solving the shocking, ritualistic and brutal murder of a local girl, unravelling the mystery via clues, lies and a trail of bodies. Agent York travels around Greenvale in a variety of vehicles – entertaining gamers with facts about movies along the way – encountering eccentric natives, supernatural creatures and a folklore killer, who stalks his victims in a blood-drenched raincoat. Agent York’s appearance changes in ‘real time’ (shaving, showering and eating are essential), and this level of hygiene has consequences as it influences the towns folk’s perceptions of him. Side quests and mini-games, such as darts, fishing and collecting trading cards also feature.
Martin Defries, managing director of Rising Star Games said:
“It’s been a real pleasure to work on Deadly Premonition. We’ve loved every minute of handling such a weird and wonderful title. It really found a place in the hearts of the gaming community when released on disc, so we wanted to give even more gaming enthusiasts a chance to play this awesome title. Now they can play Deadly Premonition by downloading it straight onto their Xbox 360s.”
Deadly Premonition is released today on the Xbox Live Network, priced at £14.99.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
