Blade Runner: Enhanced Edition is a remastered version of the 1997 adventure game Blade Runner. It features upscaled cutscenes, as the originals were either lost or were otherwise not shared by Electronic Arts from their Westwood Studios archives salvaged in the late 2010s. The interface was redone, gamepad support was added, and several post-processing effects were applied.

When it was first released, the game was bundled with the original Blade Runner, which was taken down from GOG.com as a separate product. This was reverted a few days later after a negative reaction from the fans, but the original version remained exclusively available as bundled on Steam, where it had not been available as a separate product previously.

The Enhanced Edition itself was received lukewarmly due to its bugs and performance. Two patches were published post-release to resolve a large number of the reported issues.
