Born Ready Games announced today that they will be bringing their space shooter Strike Suit Zero to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next month. The game will be a "directors cut" of the original version which will include enhanced graphics, new suits, a restructured and updated campaign, and a bunch of other goodies. These changes will make their way over to an updated PC version sometime down the line.
Sean liked the original version and the few gripes he had were fixed in a subsequent patch. Hopefully the game gets a bit more love in its new form as the game does look like a lot of fun. Here's a trailer that shows off some of what you can expect from the new game.
