Developer Flying Wild Hog's dark cyberpunk shooter Hard Reset is headed to retail in the U.K. next year, in a version that includes a number of extras and improvements. Kalypso Media will publish the Hard Reset: Extended Edition exclusively for Windows PC in March of 2012.

Hard Reset: Extended Edition still focuses on Army vet Major Fletcher as he finds himself in the middle of a futuristic robotic conflict, but adds some more bells and whistles to the proceedings.

For starters, the game's graphics engine has been updated, and a new backstory has been added. Five new levels are being added to the campaign, which the developers estimate amounts to about two more hours worth of content. Four new enemy types and one new boss character, as well as two new levels for the game's 'Survival' mode are also joining the fun. In short, there are quite a few tangible enhancements.

Pricing for Hard Reset: Extended Edition hasn't been revealed, and it's not clear yet as to whether the extended content will eventually be made available in some capacity to Hard Reset players outside the United Kingdom.

      I wouldn't see why they wouldn't release it outside the UK eventually (more just through steam or something)

      I just finished playing the demo on Steam. Pretty impressed for a game that slipped under the radar. Reminded me of Painkiller; a simple, straight forward shooter with unique graphics. Gameplay is at times quite intense and challenging.

        The gameplay was really fun from start to finish. I definitely recommend purchasing it.

      I loved this game, from everything I've seen of what the company has done so far I'd expect them to update all of the steam copies with this too. If some publishing deal prevents them or something I'll be pissed.

        Hopefully the engine update will enable the game to not run like crap on my Sandy SLI 460 rig.
