It's a shame what's happened to this game, I can see a lot of potential in it. Great leading character, charming robot allies, cool setting and story, what it needed was more polished visuals, better waypoint system and a bit more variety in the mission structure.

If by some miracle we get a sequel then I hope it's given more polish across the board. If done right this could be a successful IP for Microsoft.

All good points, though for some fans, it may be mildly encouraging that they seem to be committing to “more content” (“awesome updates” / “great stuff”) beyond just the T8-NK bot and HDR:

Kinda wondering if they're doing a really big update. Maybe even a complete overhaul of the game. Will be interesting to see. I've been waiting for this update to jump back into the game.

They should have just launched this game a year later. ReCore was an unfinished, unpolished mess. The team was clearly not given the time they needed.

True. I would love to see a revamp of some sorts. Recore has massive potential imo I know some may laugh at that but I genuinely believe it. If it had that AAA finese it could be a superb first party franchise.

Well, MS must be paying for this extra content/extra work going into the Definitive Edition, so if they're still funding development for a whole year after the game first launched (as in, a "few more months" from now) it must have done well enough to make MS happy, right?! Or maybe a small team is finishing working on this while the rest of the studio is making a start on the sequel.

Surprised to see someone mentioned they should fix the controls. The game felt great, it just didn't look that good and there were a lot of bugs.

If they can eliminate the bugs and clean up the textures on top of the new bot and area then it's going to be enough for me to jump back in. It would be cool if they went even further with improving how they tell the story, enhancing visuals, and adding some variety to the landscapes and combat.

I'll second that the IP has potential to become a series. It's one of the best feeling platformers I've played in years.

I liked a lot of stuff in ReCore but hit a wall on a Boss and just gave up(probably went there too fast) and it wasnt really an easy game to grind if I remember, and started other stuff and never got back to it.

Might try it again with this.

I liked the game too but they should have got it right the first time and at the very least they should have released the cut content shortly after launch. Re-releasing the game (a year later!) in the state it should have been at launch after it got the middling reviews and had its price slashed is like closing the stable door after the horse has bolted.

This reminds me: if there's anyone who is still thinking of picking up ReCore, and you're able to play on a decent PC, would definitely recommend trying to get ahold of the digital version (Digital Foundry: XB1 vs. 1060 vs 480), even though it's the more expensive version (Amazon currently has the digital version at $27.68, while the physical/XB1-only version is $15.08). All load times were less than 15 seconds for me on PC (on an SSD), and it looks like PC folks using a regular HDD actually had exactly the same load times (less than 15 seconds). I don't have an XB1, and while reports do seem to indicate that the three major patches (9/19/16, 10/5/16 & 11/15/16) have improved XB1 load times, it still sounded like they were well-behind the PC version.

ReCore definitely looks like a big-budget AAA title. It's not a perfect game by any means, and the performance could be improved on Xbox One, but overall it's a decent-looking title that has several captivating elements to it...

Yup, I played on PC and had no complaints on the technical front. Ran at a consistent 60fps (at higher than native resolution, too) on my modest machine with everything maxed out, or very close to IIRC. Very reasonable load times as well.

Looks like we might finally be getting some news soon. A reddit user's achievement list updated ReCore with new art for the definitive edition.



This also implies that the definitive edition will be an update for existing owners.

Yeah this seems to confirm they're just updating the current game for everyone and the original version will no longer exist. Was worried they would go the Ori Definition Edition way and charge it as a whole new game with new achievements and everything.

Has there been any mention of the Definitive Edition polishing the game at all? I never played it originally because of how janky and unpolished the movement and combat looked.

Doing the call indexing you're supposed to do at the end of development would solve most of the problems people think they know about Unity. The engine had very little to do with the tech shortcomings on the XB1 version.

A port like you're describing would be a pointless endeavor unless they legitimately wanted to double the cost of making the game, and/or probably introduce more problems than it would fix.

I'm happy about this, I liked the game and I was hoping they could work a bit more on it to fix what I did not like.

Let's see if the manage to recover what's good in this game (it is quite a lot) and make it better.

There's definitely a chance. The Definitive Edition of Halo Wars is on Steam, to say nothing of Quantum Break, the upcoming Steam release of Killer Instinct and Ori 2 apparently being a "Windows 10 launch exclusive".
