Enhanced version offers new endings, locations, and items.

Lone Survivor: The Director’s Cut, an enhanced version of last year’s PC indie hit Lone Survivor, will launch as a Cross Buy title for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita this coming Tuesday, September 24, Curve Studios has announced.

The “psychological horror adventure” game will offer “all the hallmarks of classic survival horror games,” such as high atmosphere and low ammunition, and players can use stealth or firepower to take care of baddies.

Upgrades to the PlayStation version include PS Vita touch support, an improved lighting system, twenty new items, new endings, new game locations, and more.

    Nice, I’ve actually been looking forward to this.

  • Xaltmas

    Another indie game to add to my Vita shopping list.

  • Alkhan

    Seriously Sony, I need that 64 Gb memory card soon. There are so many games that I have backed up on my PS3 because my Vita is out of room..

      The bubbles still have a limit though! (I think it’s 100 bubs max)

      • Sevyne

        Is it bad that I read that in a Wolverine voice when I saw the word “bub”?

  • Sevyne

    I strongly recommend this game to any horror fan who hasn’t played it on PC. It really does have a creepy as hell atmosphere, and pretty solid gameplay. I’ll definitely be buying it again just to have it on my Vita.

  • jujubee88

    Great! Love the exclusive indie content.

    How can anyone deny that the best place for indies is Sony’s platform with cross buy/cross play. These games are great on the Vita.

    • almostautumn

      I can— I dunno about what Vita you own, but mine can play games like Gravity Rush and Killzone Merc on it.

      I don’t have anything against indie, but your style of comment is what brings up the dissatisfaction amongst Vita consumers. Indie is fine, except Sony *seems* to be compensating for few retail releases with excessive advertising for indie titles. The issue is though, that they’re not fooling anybody who has played a retail Vita title.

      Again, nothing wrong with indie, but to say that Vita is the ‘best’ place for indies is ridiculous; the vita is the best place for vita titles.

      • Xaltmas

        With the Vita selling as horridly as it is, major third parties don’t want to touch it, so it’s probably easier to get the indies on board.

        • Sevyne

          At least for now this seem to be the case. Hopefully that Vita TV will help a little bit. Already seems to have good pre-orders in Japan.

          • Xaltmas

            I hope it does really well. I know some Vita fans are nervous about it, but the thing IS a Vita.

            Depending on how games look scaled on a TV, I wouldn’t mind getting one with a 64GB memory card and loading it up with indie games.

            I bet if Sony could market it properly as the cheapest way to play Minecraft on your TV, it would sell really well in the states.

            • Sevyne

              Yeah, I’m definitely getting one myself. If for some reason it doesn’t make it west (I’m sure it will), I’ll just import one. Not like Vita is region locked anyway.

              I’m hopeful that it’ll help things a bit.

      • Sevyne

        Your entire comment has nothing to do with his statement though and doesn’t really answer the question. It’s almost as if you are reading a completely different post.

        He doesn’t mean that Vita is the best place FOR them to be, he means that Sony platforms have provided the best/most support for Indies above the rest of the competitors.

      • Elvick

        With that logic, “PC can play games like Crisis and *whatever*”.

        “PS4 can play games like Killzone and *whatever*”

        Leaving no place for indies. Unless they want to retroactively make SNES games or something.

        • Xaltmas

          People who write off indies are going to miss out on so much, especially in the upcoming console generation.
