The Nightmare Edition of Killer is Dead for PC will be released at the end of the month.

The Steam page for Killer is Dead reveals the May 23, 2014 release date for the Nightmare Edition. This new iteration of the Grasshopper Manufacture game will include a new difficulty called Nightmare Mode that challenges players with defeating enemies only with the following attacks: Adrenaline Burst, Dodge Burst and Headshots. This makes for a more tactical gameplay experience.

A Theater Mode has been added so that players can rewatch cutscenes and learn more about certain characters. This will be available after your first playthrough of the story. Also included in the Nightmare Edition is the Smooth Operator Pack, which gives Mondo X-ray glasses, new outfits, stunning beauties to interact with, a new mission and a brand new boss.
