Destroy All Humans! is making a comeback, as announced today by THQ Nordic with the most German trailer that I’ve ever seen. If you’re a Rammstein fan, you’ll love it.
The game has been announced as a full on remake of the original 2005 release and it’s set to release sometime in 2020, though no release date has been given as of yet. However, what we do know is that Destroy All Humans! will release first on PC, and then it’ll head towards PS4 and Xbox One. Unusual, no?
While the game is being completely remade, some things will remain the same, namely the 50’s alien invasion story and the humourous dialogue. What will change is the way Crypto, the alien character players take control of, moves around the game’s world and how he kills off the humans.
Destroy All Humans! is being remade by German developer Black Forest Games using the Unreal 4 engine, so expect a high polish and graphics that’ll make the original look, well, old. To be fair, it is an old game, but it can be revisited right now on PS4 thanks to the release of the game as a PS2 Classic on the PlayStation Store. Might be worth a look before the remake releases next year.
