If you haven’t experienced the taut mystery thriller that is the barely year-old The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, now is the time to get on it. The Redux edition — a free update for owners of the original — improves on the base game in nearly every way, including those mesmerizingly beautiful visuals that are now even more impressive thanks to the Unreal Engine 4.
The few gripes I had with Ethan Carter when I reviewed it a year ago have vanished in this version, which introduces a more straightforward save system, less backtracking, environments that load in more smoothly, and a bevy of more subtle tweaks you can read up on over here.
