Hard Reset Redux coming to consoles

Hard Reset Redux coming to consoles

The first game from Flying Wild Hog, the authors of the 2011 Shadow Warrior and its upcoming sequel, is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One soon. The cyberpunk FPS Hard Reset Redux will also hit PC and features "upgraded visual engine and rebalanced gameplay, along with new enemies and weaponry". The title will be playable at PAX South this weekend. Trailer and screenshots after the jump.


Hard Reset Redux

The world as we know it has ceased to exist. Surrounded by vast, hostile wastelands, the remnants of humankind's dwindling population live within the closed city of Bezoar, but the walls have been breached. As a CLN soldier, you are all that stands between the hive mind machines of The Sanctuary, and total extinction.

Combining unapologetically over-the-top destruction and a dark cyberpunk setting, the breakout FPS from Flying Wild Hog (Shadow Warrior 1 & 2) gets reenergized for modern audiences with an upgraded visual engine and rebalanced gameplay, along with new enemies and weaponry (cyber-katana!).

Hard Reset Redux is coming soon to PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

i really enjoyed shadow warrior for the budget title it was and am looking forward to the sequel... if this is in the same price bracket i'm all over it.

Good release for console owners who never got to play this. But looking at the video and screenshots I'm sure it looked better running on my PC 5 years ago with a little sweetfx injected.

Can't imagine this one on consoles. It'll be waaaaaay too hard.

Well it is a lot of AI and animation, which seemed to be the one of the things which bogged down the framerate in the Shadow Warrior console release.

It's just a former PC FPS that takes and blends Quake/Doom, Unreal, SeriousSam and adds dashes of Crysis colors. You really think Console gamers would find it hard having experience with Killzone and Halo series A.I.?

you never heard about Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Ninja Gaiden? Ghosts and Gouls?

Someone is trolling console gamers much?

Is it just me, or does this look visually worse than the original?

This is a first person shooter. Why would anyone play an FPS game with a controller?

I'm a pretty good Halo player and even better UT and CS player. This game is hard on K/M. This game is fucking bonkers with the controller!

Dat feel of guns on Xbox One controller. I swear, sometimes you forget you holding a piece of plastic. And I shot from some real guns in my life.

Besides, sometimes singleplayer FPS are too easy on K/M.

Ohhh big bad PC Master Mouse claims...dude never played Halo Lan on Xbox 1...I bet he thinks console gamers have no skillz.

All PC is about is spending money on $500 dollar components that you have to assemble then throw away in a year...

See Consoles have this thing called Heritage...you don't see arrogant PC elists reminiscing on ACTUALLY preserving and playing their old rigs from 2007 which could not play Crysis on High Q.

Calm down dude. Aiming with a mouse is much easier and more fun. That's a fact. Why would anyone purposely handicap themselves with a controller? It's like going up the stairs with crutches, even though, there is nothing wrong with your legs. Face it, controllers are not made for FPS games and other games that require precise aiming.

And no, PC is not about buying components for $500 every year. You can run all new games maxed out perfectly with a 4-6 year old PC. And you only need to upgrade your graphics card every 4 years or so. CPU and motherboard can be upgraded every 5-7 years. The rest of the components don't have to be upgraded this often. If you really can't afford this, then maybe gaming is not what you should waste your money on. Maybe, get a higher education and a better job first?

Why would anyone preserve old rigs? Why not just sell the parts you are going to upgrade? Anyway, I can play old console games on an emulator on my PC with better performance, graphics and higher resolution than on consoles. Not to mention, I can play with any controller I want. Some console games work much better with a keyboard too, like fighting games and many platformers.

I've played a lot of Halo 1-3. I still think gamepads suck. But sure.. people are (relatively) skilled at it.

Halo 1 is about the slowest FPS in the world. If you play it with a mouse and keyboard it feels like you're walking through mud. The whole game was designed around slow inputs. It has the world's strongest camera adhesion too!

It might be a fact that it's easier and more intuitive though. It also requires less assistance from the computer for most people.

It depends when it comes to all that. Some people are better at using gamepad than mouse interms of aiming, I know i am. But it depends how many years of your life in gaming you spent most time on, for me its always been on consoles so gamepad to me is the better option to play games on.

Hmm I guess you're right. I can't believe that accurate motion tracking is less intuitive than dual analog.. but if you're heavily conditioned to the latter it might not have much of an impact on your opinion. Keyboard inputs are what noobs usually stumble on though. Raw mouse input is so straight forward... it's pretty hard to fail at.

I mean... there's a reason there's so much auto-aim in console games.

My problem with mouse and keyboard is how you have to position yourself to play. First i dont want to sit on a chair since i already have a broken lower back (disc). Two, i hate having both my arms up laying on a desk seperated and play it like there, and having to move my hands to two certain stuff for something so little.
And on keyboard, yes it got buttons, alot of it, but i do sometimes get confused on most stuff i need to reach and remember where they are at.
And hold and pressing down W to move, not a big fan of it.

I tried playing on PC so many times in various ways it just never clicked to me. But with gamepad I can just sit how and where i want and rest my arms on my lap and just relax and play and having all the buttons i need right there.

Now you are mostly talking about shooters, but i talk about pretty much anything from shooters to action RPGs and action games.

Interms of auto-aim, well yeah some games have stronger aim assist than others and some doesnt even have it at all (Killzone being one of them).

Another common mistake with fps novices on pc is high sensitivity. Makes it hard to aim and true crosshairs go everywhere. Toning it down even though it feels to slow in the beginning would probably help a lot of fps players.

On a hardware note I haven't upgraded my mobo, cpu or ram since Battlefield 3 and still pushing 60 in most games.
