Dusk Receives Free HD Overhaul on Its Fifth Anniversary
Dusk is getting a free overhaul later this year, as the boomer shooter from a solo developer is approaching its fifth anniversary. Inspired by the classics like Doom, Wolfenstein, and Duke Nukem, Dusk is a true classic that brings forward the genre.
Dusk, the ’90s-inspired boomer shooter FPS game from Gloomwood developer David Szymanski, is getting a free HD update later this year. This is sure to be great news for a lot of players, especially when combined with the mod support the HD upgrade will also be getting.
The “full visual remaster” of ’90s-inspired boomer shooter Dusk is coming for free, and it will remake “every enemy, every weapon, every model, and every texture,” in the game. The Dusk HD update will also launch with SDK and Steam workshop support for modders, and you’ll be able to download the assets from the workshop too, making all the HD content completely optional.
“And yes, you will be able to use both the old and these new assets to create anything you want with the SDK and upload your own creations to the workshop as well. We can’t wait to see it,” adds the Dusk HD announcement.
The Dusk HD update doesn’t give a specific release date, but it does say that Dusk HD is coming on the fifth anniversary of the original game, for free. This means we can likely expect it on Sunday, December 10, 2023.
