When it was rumored that ReCore would get a “Definitive Edition”, we were all but surprised and a bit skeptical about this move. But when Microsoft officially announced that ReCore will indeed get a re-release, some were excited but the others were not.
Now, Comcept and Armature Studio has released the full list of improvements that ReCore Definitive Edition will have. However, for those who already owned ReCore, you will be able to download an update once it’s made available.
Here are the list of full updates:
“Eye of Obsidian” is a brand new chapter in the ReCore story. Join the plucky Corebot, Violet, and journey into the permanent midnight of the “Starving Sea”, a previously unexplored region of Far Eden where ancient enemies plot their revenge on the last remnants of humankind!
T8-NK Corebot (“Tank”)
New Areas to Explore
2 New Overworlds
10 New Dungeons
Dynamic sandstorms in Far Eden’s Shifting Sands regions. Brave the storms to defeat more dangerous enemies and earn more valuable loot.
New Weapon Modes
3 new weapon modes for Joule’s Energy Rifle (switch to these instead of the charge shot)
When dying, reload times for combat encounters went from 30-60 seconds to < 5 seconds
Restarting traversals and arenas are now instantaneous (was a load before)
Optimized Level/Area Load Times
Added P-Cores for additional game play rewards and made them show up on the map from greater distances
P-Core requirements fixed to a single value for the entire E-Tower. (Once you’re in the E-Tower, you no longer need additional cores.)
The Map displays everything that needs to be collected (audio logs, chests, prismatic cores)
The Map shows all visual parts of dungeon maps
Objective Markers improved
Map improvements (greater visual detail, better iconography, improved zoom functionality, more game elements show up like power cells, audio logs, etc)

The player can now warp anywhere there is a Fast Travel node via the Map
Intra-Level (e.g. within The Cradle) fast travel warping is now instantaneous
Added a few new Fast Travel nodes (Granite Steps, Lonely Basin, The Cradle)
All new AoK gear for all Corebots
Armor stats now make each Set vastly different from one another & the Perks have been refined and polished
Blueprint Inventory now sorts by Armor Type, Color and LVL requirement

Enhanced visuals (increased resolution and HDR support)
