Woo some new Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut items have trickled into the US Playstation Store. Now we can deck our home avatars as the mysterious RCK and even gain Willie as a companion on this side of the pond! I think I may actually have a reason to install PSHome on my PS3! :)

Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut Avatar Items Now Available for PlayStation®Home

The Greenvale Police Dept. has issued this extremely important All Points Bulletin:

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

From the desk of Sheriff George Woodman:

Greetings,

Today we have learned that a very dangerous person is on the loose and has been terrorizing PlayStation®Home inhabitants. This legendary Greenvale menace, better known as the Raincoat Killer, can be easily identified by his signature red raincoat, glowing crimson-colored eyes, and may also be seen wielding a razor-sharp full-size axe. This terror is to be considered highly dangerous and should not be engaged directly. We are aware that there may be copycat suspects dressed as the Raincoat Killer. While these suspects have yet to present a threat, it is still advised that everyone proceed with caution and try to remain calm.

To better assist in your safety, and the security of all PlayStation Home residents, the Greenvale Police Dept. has assigned Willie the Dog to aid you in the hunt and seizure of the Raincoat Killer.

If you have additional information on the whereabouts or have seen the Raincoat Killer please contact the Greenvale Police Department, HERE.

Gamers who feel like scaring the biscuits of their fellow PlayStation Home peers can now download the Raincoat Killer’s Costume; complete with signature red raincoat, glowing eyes, and matching axe to complete the ensemble of Greenvale’s greatest terror. The Killer’s Axe, the Killer’s Raincoat, and the Axe of Anguish can also be purchased separately. In addition, a trusty new companion fit for any Deadly Premonition fan, Willie the Dog is also available for download. All items can be downloaded from PlayStation Home on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

May 29th, 2013 | 10:15 am   By: Whitney

Good news! It looks like the new DLC is starting to trickle into the Europe and North American Playstation stores (with more coming in the next few weeks).

In North America we can now purchase the Espresso and York’s Field Ops suits that were offered at Gamestop and Amazon for pre-ordering the game. (still waiting on the cars, avatars, and PS home items previously listed in the Europe PSN weeks ago)

In Europe Emily’s two alternate outfits : “Cat Girl” which we saw in the Director’s Cut launch trailer and “Friday Night Outfit” (a picture which Ross has graciously provided below) are now available.

Fans report DPDC is buggy and the EU digital release is delayed

April 27th, 2013 | 12:34 am   By: Whitney

So Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut officially released in Europe! Yay! I know I’m jealous because I won’t get my hands on the game until Tuesday, April 30th here in the US.

However, instead of the plethora of tweets and posts of excitement I expected on DPDC EU release day there’s been an increasing amount of discussion about how glitchy, and depending on who you talk to, unplayable the game is :(

Fans are reporting major frame rate drops while playing the opening chapter and driving around Greenvale along with varying audio problems, translation errors and even York killing glitches.

I have to say these reports are not only disappointing but also surprising given that the build I saw back in both January and March of this year at the two DPDC San Francisco press events I attended displayed no such issues! Unfortunately, since the Director’s Cut won’t be released in the US until next week I’m not sure if the problems reported are strictly limited to the PAL release or will plague the NTSC release as well. As soon as I get my hands on my own copy I will let you guys know of any issues I experience!

Additionally, I had several fans tell me last night that the day one European digital release has also been delayed until May 1st! However, according to a message Ill Saint received from the Playstation Store it hints that this release may be delayed even longer then originally reported due to technical issues

Our records show that you have pre-ordered ‘Deadly Premonition: Director’s Cut Preorder Pack’ from PlayStation®Store. We regret to inform you that due to technical issues, Deadly Premonition will miss its expected release date of 26th April. We are working hard to resolve these issues as quickly as possible. Unfortunately we are unable to provide a revised release date at this time. For the most up-to-date information please visit the product page, which can be found here:
https://store.sonyentertainmentnetwo…00000000000397

Be advised your pre-order has not been cancelled and as of 24/04/2013 your Sony Entertainment Network Wallet has not been charged. The charge date for your pre-order will be revised based on the new release date. If you require any assistance, please visit the PlayStation Support page which can be found here: http://eu.playstation.com/support/

Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.

The PlayStation®Store Team

Could this be due to the day one bugs fans have been reporting? I have my fingers crossed that maybe a patch is already be in the works.

Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut Pre-Order DLC for US and UK Details Revealed [Update]

March 23rd, 2013 | 10:13 am   By: Whitney

header

While scoping out the various stores the Official Deadly Premonition Director’s Cut site links to pre-order the game I noticed that stores in the US and UK now display what their DLC pre-order bonuses are!

US DLC Pre-Order Bonuses

In the US if you pre-order from Amazon or Gamestop you will receive a special suit for York to wear.

Amazon is offering the “Field Ops suit” that when worn will increase York’s HP and Attack Power times three.

fosuit

Pre-order Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut and get the Amazon exclusive Field Ops suit, increasing HP and Attack Power x3. Greenvale can be a dangerous place. Dress to kill with the fashionable and imposing Field Ops suit to enhance attack and strengthen defense. Offer valid when shipped and sold by Amazon.com. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. Access code will be emailed within two business days after your order ships. This offer will be extended to all existing pre-orders. Amazon reserves the right to change or terminate this promotion at any time. Limited to one per customer order. Please read the PlayStation Network terms of use.

While Gamestop is offering the “Espresso Suit” which will increases York’s tolerance to hunger and tiredness times three.

espressosuit

Pre-order Deadly Premonition The Director’s Cut now to receive the GameStop Exclusive Espresso Suite!

Espresso Suit

-Tolerance to Hunger and Tiredness x3

When working on a mysterious murder case, trivial things such as eating and sleeping just end up getting in the way. Fear not! With the stylish and snappy Espresso Suit York can keep going all night.

Online Customers: Code will be emailed within 2 business days after your order ships.
Store / In-Store Pickup Customers: Code will be printed on your receipt at time of pickup.

I have to the say that between two DLC suits offered in the US Amazon’s seems most useful as I never had too much trouble keeping York awake and fed through out the game.

UK DLC Pre-Order Bonuses

Meanwhile across the pond Amazon.co.uk offers the same “Field Ops” suit as the site’s US counterpart described above Well Amazon.co.uk now says it’s offering a “Survivor Pack pre-order bonus” whatever that is! No pictures on the site just yet. (Thanks Ross!)

while Shopto.net is offering up something completely different.

When you pre-order from Shopto.net you will receive the “Transporter Pack” DLC that contains four brand new rides, each with their own special attribute described below, for York to cruise around Greenvale. Unfortunately there aren’t any pictures of these new rides just yet.

Deadly Premonition: The Directors Cut Transporter Pack DLC

Includes: The Devil’s Red, The Blue GT, The Green Drifter and the Chibi Chibi Bang Bang Car.

- The Devil’s Red: Increased max speed and faster acceleration – Everyone knows red paint makes you go faster and this car is no exception. Pick up the keys to The Devil’s Red and hold on to the seats!

- The Blue GT: Enhanced handling – Dodging down side streets and weaving through traffic is inevitable in those heated moments. The Blue GT will never let you down with its improved handling and stability.

- The Green Drifter: Expert car able to drift – Some like to live life on the edge. The Forest Green is a car for the thrill-seekers. Drift your way through Greenvale in this expert car for maximum respect.

- Chibi Chibi Bang Bang Car: Skin only – Not all cars were made equal and this car is certainly in a league of its own. Become an ultimate fan with this chibi decorated Deadly Premonition police car.

If you pre-order the Director’s Cut through the EU PSN you can receive “Suit-Up & Transporter packs” DLC. (Thanks Ross!) The Director’s Cut hasn’t popped up for pre-order on the US PSN just yet but I hope there’s a similar deal.

I have the say the new rides for York sounds pretty appealing as well, it’s too bad I’m not in the UK!

Director’s Cut – US and UK Release Dates and DLC Pre-order Bonuses!

March 20th, 2013 | 5:54 pm   By: Whitney

51ruqW+oc0L._SX385_

If you aren’t sure whether or not to pre-order the Director’s Cut (releasing April 26 in Europe and April 30th in the US) maybe this will tempt you!

If you pre-order from certain retailers in North America and the UK (detailed below) and you will receive some sort of exclusive downloadable content. Unfortunately neither press release I received detailed what the content is but I have to say I’m intrigued!

It seems though according the Rising Stars Games UK Press Release that EU Playstation Plus members will also have an addition DLC incentive as well (again no details on the particulars of this content have been revealed). I hope that’s something US Playstation Plus members can expect as well!

UK Press Release

From now through to its UK release date, fans who pre-order the highly anticipated title (from participating retailers) will receive exclusive downloadable content. Participating retailers across the UK include GAME, Amazon, and will also include a group of dedicated independent retailers via Advantage Distribution. In addition, Rising Star Games is excited to be working closely with Sony Entertainment Network on a digital pre-order incentive that will be offered exclusively to Playstation®Plus members.

For gamers who have yet to subscribe to PlayStation Plus, Rising Star Games has teamed up with Sony to offer customers a free 30-day trial membership of PlayStation Plus. This will be available on a limited run of Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut and is exclusive to boxed retail copies.

The dedicated website for Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut lists the retailers across all territories who are participating in the campaign: www.deadlypremonitionthegame.com.

North American Press Release

From now through its North American release date of April 30, 2013, fans who reserve the highly-anticipated title (from participating retailers, including Amazon.com and Gamestop) will receive downloadable content so plush, that Agent York (and Zach) will feel like their investigation in the small country town of Greenvale just turned into a vacation.
