Flying Wild Hog Announces Hard Reset, a Dark Sci-Fi Shooter for PC
Polish Studio Comprised of Painkiller, Bulletstorm and Witcher 2 Vets Announces its Atmospheric and Action-Packed Cyberpunk Debut


Warsaw, Poland – July 13. Flying Wild Hog announced its debut game, the dark sci-fi first-person shooter, Hard Reset. The PC-exclusive title transports players to a haunting, dystopian future, with humanity on the verge of extinction, confined to its last standing city and under constant threat from the robotic hordes that aim to annihilate mankind. Hard Reset is scheduled for release in September 2011.

In the only remaining human city of Bezoar, Major Fletcher, an Army Combat Veteran and soldier of the CLN, is dragged into a conflict between two of mankind's greatest enemies. He is to discover that nothing is what it seems to be.

Hard Reset may be Flying Wild Hog's debut title, but the 35-person studio is comprised of veterans of Warsaw's bustling development scene, with past experience at such renowned developers as People Can Fly, CD Projekt RED and City Interactive, where they worked on acclaimed games like Bulletstorm, Painkiller, The Witcher 2, Sniper and more. Hard Reset is built upon the studio's own Road Hog technology, which delivers stunning visuals that bring the game's incredible atmosphere to life.

Given the game's rapidly approaching release date, expect much more information and footage of Hard Reset in the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, visit http://hardresetgame.com and follow the game's progress on Twitter and Facebook.

"humanity on the verge of extinction" How many times have you read that on a press release for a game?
Commented on 2011-07-14 04:25:05
YES! More cyberpunk please!

We need Altered Carbon, Neuromancer and Bladerunner games!
Preferably Third person action/adventure/rpg's :-)

Anyway on-topic, looks pretty good! Will wait for some footage..

Wow. Another PC exclusive game?? What's going on here?? Could there be a future comeback for the PC?

Small Eastern European studios often can't afford the licensing fees for console development. If they get a big publisher, It could easily change.

Nice, more sci fi shooter!

Hopefully its good.

In the only remaining human city of Bezoar, Major Fletcher, an Army Combat Veteran and soldier of the CLN, is dragged into a conflict between two of mankind's greatest enemies. He is to discover that nothing is what it seems to be.
Great, generic ex-soldier back in the fight, pisses me off with these stories.

Games like Prey 2, Rage...etc. is good, because you play as a bounty hunter and not some generic soldier again.

What do you mean comeback? Ever logged into steam... Makes consoles look like one of those fixed-number games handhelds from back in the days.

Pc gaming has never been more alive ;-)

Since Empire: Total War forceablly married me to Steam I have consistently neglected my Xbox even when Reach came out which before that was one of my most anticipated titles!

Nowadays I pray MS will take Halo back to PC and Xbox like Halo 2 was because I have 100 games on Steam now, from Fallout 3 to Sim City 4, overall only costing me £400. Averages to about £4 a game! Love Steam sales. 75% off ftw.

Yeah, dead tired of being neglected.

Recently, I've been on STEAM, and your eyes are opened to so many new experiences! Xbox live feels like a drought in comparison. Its very hard to get motivated to turn on a console and play games that aren't even 720p!

Looks nice enough but PC only = no sales. Surely they could have got something in place with MS or Sony.
Commented on 2011-07-14 15:08:01
Gotta love that use of colors!!

I just love when devs use that kinds of art styles!!

Bring it baby!!

Wait.....PC only? That bastard!!!!

:(

/facepalm. More money for console ports with separate team, publishing deals, contracts, stockholders, sales expectations. If game tanks, MS/Sony will lay all the employees off, keep the IP and brand name.

PC only = sales, realistic sales expectations. Steam is their savior for marketing.

looks nice so far! I would love a proper Cyberpunk (yes, there is a pen&paper actually called Cyberpunk) or Shadowrun RPG. That would be SO AWSOME...
AAAAAAWWWWWSOOOME!

PC = no sales? pc has loads of sales, check steam out,i think some people are falling for common misconeption.
Commented on 2011-07-14 20:25:01
Kinda reminds me of the ue3.9 tech demo, not as graphically impressive obviously, but the style is very similar, some shots look almost 1:1

PC may not = no sales, but it does mean over half the people playing it will be pirates. You can't survive on PC alone unless you're Valve or Blizzard.

Again, check out steam, loads of studios that flourish on there.. I would like to see some evidence of this "can't survive on pc alone" fable...
