Hard Reset: Redux is an updated release of Hard Reset: Extended Edition. The core game is identical, but with various new elements. There is a new Cyber-Katana weapon providing new opportunities for close melee attacks. Dashing is added to the movement and a dash can be performed in any of four directions. The Cyborg Zombie is a new enemy to the game and the enemy placement for the entire game has also been overhauled. This also includes elements that were previously only available in the Hard Reset: Exile DLC, now integrated into the entire game instead of the additional levels. The gameplay has been rebalanced with better pacing and improved difficulty levels. The game was updated to the latest version of the RoadHog engine, also with improved lightning and effects and improved performance. There is a new quicksave feature and this version has full gamepad support.
Owners of any version of Hard Reset or Shadow Warrior can get this version of the game at a reduced price. For Xbox One and PS4 this is the first version of the game.
