Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut Release Date Revealed

By Joseph C,
Although mentioned among the plethora of ID@Xbox titles in our E3 coverage, Q.U.B.E. Director's Cut has had its fair share of dedicated coverage in the 18 months since its announcement. The latest was a batch of trailers and screens, giving us a preview of the console-release of this definitive edition.

Developer Toxic Games and Publisher Grip Games have announced that Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut will land on consoles first on Playstation 3&4 in the US on July 21st, with the rest of the world to follow on the 22nd for those platforms.  Xbox One owners will have to wait just a couple of days longer, with a worldwide release for the platform planned for July 24th. 

For those still unaware of the acronym’s significance, Q.U.B.E. stands for Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion, which is a fancy way of saying you’ll solve many puzzles using various blocks that turn physics on its ear to reach your destination: home.  This version includes all the platforming, puzzling, and other features of the original PC release, adding to that the all-new Against The Qlock mode.   This time-trial mode allows you to place your times on worldwide leaderboards to see where your cleverness ranks against your friends – or foes.

To pique your interest for next-week’s launch, a new trailer has been released as well.  For those that haven’t seen the game on PC and want to remain spoiler-free, fear not. This is just a snippet of a lone astronaut in a long cuboid hallway as the camera spirals away, a mere teaser of what’s in store.  Check it out below and prepare your problem-solving skills.

Q.U.B.E.: Director’s Cut releases July 24th worldwide on Xbox One.

36-year old married gamer, father to a fierce Boston Terrier but no humanoid children. I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U.

I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am.

I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
