Microids has announced that a major update for XIII Remake will come out on September 13th. Developed by Tower Five, this update aims to completely overhaul the game. And, naturally, this update will be free to all owners of the game.
According to Microids, Tower Five has reworked the entire game, from the Art Direction to the AI. Moreover, the team added numerous technical improvements. Finally, Tower Five implemented the highly awaited online multiplayer mode for up to 13 players.
Stéphane Longeard, CEO at Microids, said:
“We are fully aware and terribly sorry that the initial launch of XIII Remake on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game 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. Tower Five worked with us in the past, notably on the great port of Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders on Nintendo Switch. 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. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will of course benefit from all the work done to improve the game as well as the multiplayer mode, which will mark the end of the game’s development. We can’t wait for players to put their hands on this improved version of the game and (re)discover the classic adventures of Agent XIII, as soon as it’s released after the Summer.”
As said, this update will become available on September 13th!
