Heavy Rain Gets Move Patch and Demo on September 22nd

Posted by James Newton

A downpour of information inside

Heavy Rain: Move Edition is the updated version of Quantic Dream's seminal interactive drama, and it's set to arrive soon in two mouthwatering flavours.

If you already own the original Heavy Rain, you can expect to experience all the fun of downloading a new patch for it on September 22nd, which will add in all the Move functionality you can imagine. There'll also be a Move-enabled demo featuring early scenes Sleazy Place and Crime Scene available on the PlayStation Store on the same day, just in case you're unsure whether the updated title is worth your time.

If you're completely new to this Heavy Rain thing, you might want to hold onto your horses for the disc release of Heavy Rain: Move Edition. Releasing across mainland Europe on October 6th, New Zealand and Australia on October 7th and finally reaching the UK on October 8th – sound familiar? – for £29.99 or €39.99, the disc includes playable scene The Taxidermist, a trio of dynamic themes for your PS3, the soundtrack and nine behind-the-scenes Making Of videos totalling around 45 minutes.

Want the extra content but don't want to play the game with the shiny new Move controls? You'll still have full control using the DualShock 3, but that would be rather missing the point, we think.

Kinda sucks that those who buy the game for the first time now - even at a discounted price - gets more content than those of us who bought upon release. Not that this is a new thing, GOTY editions have been going on for years. This time it just seems so soon, to be giving away extra content. Those dynamic themes would have been cool...

@AlexWideScreen I believe Sony is set to announce something about this extra content being available on PSN. It might just be the video content so don't get too excited but from what I understand you might not be totally out of luck.

The Taxidermist is already available and was Free with Preorder, the themes will be available as a download im sure.

@slapshot82 Cheers for the info, I don't think we got that scene over here with the pre-orders, though it might have been on the special edition.

So if I buy move edition, can I still play the regular way without move?

Nice, Quantic Dream. Giving those who bought the original a patch is just the right thing to do!
