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.
...doesn't seem to correspond to 'essential, you need it'. Maybe they should have gone with another word. (1 minute ago)
@Sdarts: Exactly. Essential should transcend the genre. Essential means that you need it. But writing in the prologue 'if you don't like JRPG, I can't help you'... (2 minutes ago)
There's also The Last Guardian and Final Fantasy 15, if one counts the last 6 months. (3 minutes ago)
Someone should hit Inafune and ask what he's working on... ROFLOL Hideki Kamiya was so on point with his comment. (4 minutes ago)
From left to right: Gravity Rush 2, NieR: Automata, Yakuza 0, Tales of Berseria (told the combat was the best!), Nioh, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Persona 5. (5 minutes ago)
And then just in 2017 we have: [url] From Japanese developers. (8 minutes ago)
On the subject, anyone here remembers Keiji Inafune's quote about Japanese developers? Then he went to do Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z (sorry for mentioning it) and Mighty No. 9, real "gems". (9 minutes ago)
