Publisher Curve Digital and developer The Chinese Room have announced that a Director's Cut of Dear Esther is heading to PS4 and Xbox One this summer.

In addition to "gentle tweaks" to mechanics there will be a "director's commentary" mode once you've completed the game that will allow you to play the game with members of the development team sharing stories of the development as you play.

"We've always known that Dear Esther would continue its story," says Dan Pinchbeck, The Chinese Room, "and we're delighted to be writing that story with Curve Digital. Dear Esther is a hugely important game to us, so it's great to know it's in very capable hands - we're excited to see the reaction from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players."

"It is rare that a game can be considered 'genre-defining'; but Dear Esther is one such title," says Simon Byron, publishing director, Curve Digital. "It was literally the game I set up a Steam account for, so to work with the immense team at The Chinese Room to bring their seminal game to a console audience is a genuine thrill. I'm really excited that both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners are soon to embark on a journey which has the potential to change them."

After Dear Esther (released in 2012) The Chinese Room have gone on to develop Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.
