Lone Survivor – The Director’s Cut is coming to Mac and PC on

Halloween, the 31st October, 2013

i have quietly been beavering away over the last few months to bring this enormous update back to the format it began life on. it was originally going to be a very slightly updated version of the original game, but turned into a ten-month odyssey. i was able to add all the little details which i wasn’t able to squeeze in the first time round, so that i could bring my original vision to you with no compromises, and with them a whole load of new ideas that emerged as i worked on it.

almost without fail, business-minded friends and colleagues, as well as the players themselves, expected i would release the game as a brand new version, requiring the players of the original game to purchase it again, or at the very least to release the update as paid DLC. i gave it a huge amount of thought, and eventually i realised i would rather just give the update away for FREE to all 800,000+ customers, to say thank you for your support… and that’s exactly what i’m going to do!

yep, you heard it right: Lone Survivor – The Director’s Cut is going to be 100% FREE to anyone who has bought the game so far (even for $0.01 in the Humble Bundle!)

to offset some of the (quite large) costs of making it, i will be having a small price increase on release, although i’ll be running a sale for the first couple of days so that it’ll still be possible to purchase at the original price before the increase. exact pricing TBA on release day, as i am still talking to the various vendors. on the subject of which, i am very happy to announce that the game will also be coming to Good Old Games, a fantastic site doing great work to preserve the classics of yesteryear, as well as releasing the greatest of the latest.

what’s really cool is that your saved game from the original version will still be compatible with The Director’s Cut (but not the other way round.)

the response to the PlayStation versions has been wonderful, with the game earning not-too-shabby 84% on Metacritic. i am so happy to see a new generation of console players discover the game, which marks the end of a massively important chapter of my life. thanks so much to Curve studios for their fantastic ports, and especially to all the players who have supported the game.

i really hope all my PC and Mac owning brethren enjoy The Director’s Cut,

love and peace to you all!

    I’ve gotten Lone Survivor in the Humble Indie Bundle V. Will this version also be updated?

    Thank you so much, but please, make a patch with spanish subtitles for PS3 and PC someday. Many people can’t play this great game for this reason. It would be great to play this game in my language on PS3. Thanks again.

    Hello, Jasper, how are you? I really hope that you read this, in any case I will also attempt to contact you through your e-mail.

    I have purchased Lone Survivor in 3/30/2012 and had a real good time with it, now, I wanted to re-experience it, but it seems that I cannot download the game anymore. I also noticed that the game is now on Steam, and purchasing it from your store also gives players a Steam key, I am entitled to one of those? Even though I bought the game before it was on steam?

    Thank you for your attention.

    Pedro.

    Thank you so much for bringing this to PC, and for free for existing customers? That’s excellent of you.

    Does this represent the end of your support for this title? Looking at the list of Director’s Cut features for the PlayStation family, having controller support and Steam achievements would be an excellent addition for those of us who prefer using a controller with their PC.

      hi there,

      i have asked all youtubers who sought permission to use footage of the new endings to wait until 6 weeks after the pc release (dec 15th.) this is so that the original customers of the game get a chance to discover the content themselves, that’s taken me a long time to add. if you had asked me, i would have said the same thing.

      my games are unusual in that they take many years to make and they contain a lot of hidden content and so it’s really important to me to be able to preserve the mystery for a short while after release.

      i did send you two messgaes (if you are the youtube user i had to issue a copytight notice to.) i did try and ask politely. i am sorry i had to issue the copyright notice, but you wouldn’t respond to me.

      i hope you can understand,

      sorry once again,

      jasper

      Maybe if you hadn’t misused the content in a lame attempt to generate views on your channel the account wouldn’t have needed to be banned. Funny how there are consequence to actions huh?

      Honestly, what is YOUR problem Carlo? Your sense of entitlement is disgusting.
