It’s no secret that Little Nightmares II has been one of my favorite releases of 2021 so far, so imagine my excitement when I found out that a free upgrade to an enhanced edition is available now for PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC! This free upgrade is available for those who currently own the game on PS4 or Xbox One or as a patch for those who own the game on PC. Details below:

Today, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. has released Little Nightmares II Enhanced Edition, featuring visual upgrades and improvements for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PCs via STEAM® and GOG. The Enhanced Edition is available now as a free upgrade on console for players who own the PlayStation 4, Xbox One versions and as a free update patch for the PC version of the game.

Developed by Supermassive Games, the new-generation version of the game will offer several enhancements compared to the original title. Two modes will be available, a Performance mode will put the game in 2160p and 60 fps, and a Beauty Mode will see the game’s resolution improved to 4K with a dynamic resolution and 30 fps. Here are the full details of what the Enhanced Edition includes:

*Beauty Mode* – Little Nightmares II runs at 30fps at 4K resolution with optimized Ray-Tracing.
*Performance Mode* – Locks the game at 60fps. Dynamic resolution up to 4K to maintain 60fps with Ray-Tracing.
*Ray-Traced Reflections – Allows any shiny surface to provide a reflection. Its clarity and definition depend on the surface.
*Volumetric Shadows – Increased resolution of volumetric shadows. Light rays are disturbed by objects and characters moving in front of a strong light source.
*Interactive Particles – Particles are more abundant and dynamically affected by Mono, Six and the main antagonists. Particles swim and eddy behind them, creating a more realistic and immersive environment.
*Immersive Audio – New immersive 3D soundscape mix, creating a more involving experience when listening via 5.1 /7.1 audio systems or headphones.

The PC version will also benefit from these enhancements, which will be customizable for players.

Produced in partnership with Tarsier Studios, Little Nightmares II follows the story of Mono, a young boy trapped in a world distorted by the humming transmission of a distant Signal Tower. Together with Six, the girl in a yellow raincoat, he sets out to discover the grim secrets of the world whilst fleeing from the monstrous residents out to capture him. Little Nightmares II is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia.
