Heavy Rain: Director's Cut out next week

DLC, soundtrack and other goodies bundled into one box

SCEA has confirmed it will release Heavy Rain: Director's Cut in US stores on November 8.


The new version will come packed with the download content expansion 'Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode 1 - The Taxidermist', the soundtrack, bonus making-of videos and more.

Here's the full list:

- Complete, original game, Heavy Rain
- Heavy Rain Chronicles: Episode 1 - The Taxidermist DLC
- Heavy Rain Original Videogame Score by award-winning film and television composer, Normand Corbeil (16 tracks)
- New front-end menu and interface with built-in Move support
- A series of 8 "Making of" Bonus Videos
- Three Dynamic Themes (Heavy Rain, Heavy Rain ARI Forest, Heavy Rain ARI Mars)
- 15 additional pieces of new concept art
- 2 bonus Trailers (Thank You Trailer, Love Trailer)

That lot will only set you back $29,99, making it a no-brainer for anyone who doesn't have the game already.

Sony is also making the Heavy Rain Crime Scene Dynamic Theme for PS3 free via the PS Store from November 8. There's as yet no release date for the Director's Cut in UK.

And this is the closest you'll get to a new Quantic Dream release this year, as the developer's boss man David Cage has pretty much stamped on chances of us seeing a Heavy Rain sequel from the studio, claiming he's "not in this business to make money".
