Having played and enjoyed this title on PC some time ago, it’s nice to see it getting a proper console release with some updated materials.
Grip Games, publisher of shooter smash hit Tower of Guns, have finalised the console release dates for the much-anticipated ultimate edition of the physics puzzler connoisseur’s favourite: Q.U.B.E: Director’s Cut.
Q.U.B.E. launches on both PlayStation 3 and 4 in the US on 21 July, with the rest of the world following on 22 July, and will be available globally on Xbox One on 24 July. The WiiU version will follow in August. The price will be €$9.99 on all formats. On the PSN, the game supports cross-buy – purchasing Q.U.B.E on PS3 or PS4 gives you an instant free download on both consoles.
In Q.U.B.E (‘Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion’), you awake in a mystery-packed spaceship, your only hope being the clever manipulation of a collection of physics-bending blocks, to discover all the secrets of the ship, and find your way home. In addition to the existing first-person platforming challenges, 3D jigsaws, bonus pick-ups and myriad of hurdles combining precision, logic and quick reactions, this new edition adds exclusive new levels including Against The Qlock, with time trials to win you a place on the scoreboard for friends all around the universe to applaud – or challenge!
A cross-platform hit on its original release, Q.U.B.E has been expanded and enriched in this all-new edition published by Grip Games and masterminded by original developers Toxic Games, who brought in award-winning industry legend Rob Yescombe, writer for Crysis 2 and Alien: Isolation, and actors Rupert Evans and Rachel Robinson, to bring a whole new level of immersion to Q.U.B.E’s mystery-filled narrative.
Grip Games’ Jakub Mikyska said, “Everyone who became immersed in Q.U.B.E on its first release will be glad to return to face the all-new challenges, while gamers who have yet to experience the mysteries of Q.U.B.E have a treat in store.”
