If there’s one takeaway from the highly anticipated and upcoming Soviet-era FPS RPG, it’s that it looks completely and utterly bonkers. And just in case it didn’t look weird enough for you before, the latest trailer from Gamescom 2022 surely will convince you otherwise. Plus, it’s now launching a little sooner than we expected!
Atomic Heart doesn’t actually have an official release date yet, but the developers at Mundfish have revealed it will be releasing in “late 2022” at least. The official Steam page says “Q4 2022”, so it’s safe to say that we can expect it sometime around October-December 2022. That’s a bit earlier than many might have thought given the long swathes of silence between updates.
Thankfully, the latest combat trailer gives us a deeper look into the FPS combat we can expect in Atomic Heart, like the gunplay, melee combat, and special abilities/powers. It’s also totally wild, as usual, which is perhaps one of its most appealing factors. Plus, who doesn’t love a bit of Mick Gordon whilst beating up weird monstrosities?
What do you think? Are you excited for Atomic Heart? How do you feel about the gameplay shown off above? Does it look better or worse than last time? Let us know your thoughts!
