Heading to consoles as well as the PC, the revamped version of Hard Reset is looking great in this 10 minute taste of gameplay.
If you missed Hard Reset the first time around, you’re not alone. The cyberpunk, robot blasting FPS was a bit of an under appreciated gem when it hit the PC from developer Flying Wild Hog a few years ago. Maybe that’s why Gambitious and the aforementioned developer have seen fit to re-issue the game, complete with a visual makeover.
With most of the world reduced to wasteland, the Earth’s remaining human super-city is the focus of the game, with you playing the part of a ‘CLN soldier’. All’s not well for the last human remnants though, as the walls of the city have been bypassed by some nasty robots. And you probably can guess what comes next.
Gameplay-wise, Hard Reset Redux plays like an old school FPS, which means it’s pretty darn tough and doesn’t feature any of the added elements that the genre has become weighed down with in the last few decades since its creation. Harkening back to the 90s, it doesn’t even have multiplayer, something that the press release proudly touts – this is “a hardcore, no-#@%$-given, single-player FPS” plain and simple.
Upgraded visuals aren’t the only thing that’s different this time around though. Hard Reset Redux also has some gameplay tweaks, and new enemies and weaponry. So if you played it already in its previous form, you should still get quite a bit out of this new version.
Landing on the PS4, Xbox One, and back on the PC, you can expect to play Hard Reset Redux on June the 3rd.
