Killer is Dead Heading to PC

SUDA 51’s most recent Assassin title, Killer is Dead, is heading to PC courtesy of Deep Silver.

Titled the Killer is Dead: Nightmare Edition, the release will land on May 9th with some new content;

  • New difficulty mode called Nightmare Mode. In this mode, enemies can only be defeated using the following attacks: Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst, Headshots, so the gameplay requires far more skill and tactics. Players will not be able to use the Final Judgement finisher (QTE mode) to defeat enemies.
  • Smooth Operator Pack for console will be included and unlocked after Episode 3.
  • Theater Mode – Rewatch cutscenes and get extended background information on characters, helping to unravel the story after your 1st playthrough

Now, I wasn’t the biggest fan of Killer is Dead when I reviewed it back on its console release. It was alright, but as an action game it wasn’t up to Metal Gear Rising’s standard, and as a SUDA game it failed to hit the highs of Killer 7 and No More Heroes.

That said the first new tweak, the new difficulty, could go some way to tackling the monotony of conflicts if there’s a touch more thought required. Perhaps I’ll give this another investigation on the ol’ Personal Computer in May…
