Republique Remastered will be launching on PC and Mac via Steam, GOG, and Humble Store on February 26, Camouflaj announced today.

The critically-acclaimed stealth adventure game has been completely rebuilt from the ground up using Unity 5, and as a result, the game will include physically based shading, real-time global illumination, and reflection probes.

“Ever since we committed to doing a desktop version of Republique, we’ve been haunted by the task for delivering something truly special for PC players,” says Ryan Payton, designer at Camouflaj. “When we got a glimpse at the next iteration of Unity we realized that this was the answer — beyond redesigning the game’s controls and UI for desktop, we’ve completely gutted all the game’s art, rebuilding everything using Unity 5’s cutting-edge graphical features. The result is something you have to see to believe.”

Republique Remastered has players assisting Hope, who is looking to escape from a secret, Orwellian state. Through the use of a stolen phone, Hope will contact the player in order to ask them to assist her in a number of ways, which includes hacking into the nation’s surveillance system. The player will be able to progress to controlling surveillance cameras and other network-enabled devices, which will make you a larger threat to the Overseer.

Republique Remastered will include Episode 1: Exordium, Episode 2: Metamorphosis, and Episode 3: Ones and Zeroes in both its Standard and Deluxe Editions. Both editions will include a pre-purchase of the upcoming Episode 4: God’s Acre and Episode 5: Terminus, while the Deluxe Edition adds the complete soundtracks, two early prototypes, and an hour-long making-of documentary.

During its launch week, Republique Remastered will debut at a 20% off sales price at $19,99 and $28.99, respectively. Afterwards, the pricing for both will go to their standard $24.99 and $34.99 prices, respectivey.

      Neato. Have always been interested in this.

      If there is one 2000-forward meme I'd like to see done away with, it's 'Female Video Game Character In Hoodie'.

        That is not a meme. That is a trope.

          It's just something I feel that I see frequently. Dante's lady friend in the latest Devil May Cry for instance. I am having trouble coming up with other examples, but I'm sure I'm not crazy.

            I'm just not sure why that would bother you?

              Ha! OK, I mislabelled it as a meme, and then mis-characterized it as a trope implying I'm weirdly angry about it. Not the case.

              It's just common and lazy. Not banning any games because of it or anything. End of subthread please. :)

                  Waffles are the evolution of pancakes and I old eat the top of the food chain.
