It's been a little while since we checked in with Atomic Heart, the eerie sci-fi shooter from developer Mundfish. Earlier this year, the game was pencilled in for release in late 2022, but no release date is mentioned at all in this latest trailer, which focuses on combat.
The game is looking absolutely bananas in the best way. Set against an alternate reality Soviet Union in which technology has taken major advances, the idyllic world led by science and robotics has of course gone wrong. Behind closed doors, disturbing experiments are the cause of all kinds of mutants and machines out to get you, and it's your job to get to the bottom of everything.
The combat looks to be taking its cues from the likes of BioShock, with a mixture of firearms and elemental powers. It looks frantic, violent, and scary, again recalling memories of fighting Rapture's nasties. There are some pretty awesome enemy designs shown off — those big robots are pretty intimidating.
Hopefully the game isn't too far away, as it seems to be shaping up nicely. Are you excited for Atomic Heart on PS5 and PS4? Tell us in the comments section below.
I’ve generally been ok with all 2023 delays but if this gets delayed too I’d be gutted.
It’s easily my most hyped gamepass game from everything that wasn’t delayed.
EDIT: lol just realized I said this on pushsquare and not purexbox. I’m broke so gamepass and ps premium are my solution, especially for new releases.
It looks mental !!!! I have so got to play it
The game looks great, still I’ll boycott it due to the fact that the developers are Russians and they won’t even protest their idiotic invasion of Ukraine. The whole Soviet theme is even more insulting, knowing that Russians are killing civilians and destroy cities while proudly carrying the Soviet flag with them.
Buying this game would mean I’d indirectly finance terrorists.
I wish Stalker 2 would have released on PS5 instead of this…
Looks cool and awesome.
Isnt this affected by the sanctions? Or I am wrong and is it made outside of Russia.
Yeah I remember this from a while back. I’ll be keeping an eye on this one for sure.
@Baircade Mundfish is based in Moscow, how is this game going to be released when they don’t even have access to PS Store is beyond me (or at least, PlayStation and Microsoft supposedly aborted their Russian operations)
Been waiting on this for a few years now. Seems fitting currently.
Ever since I saw the first trailer many moons ago, I've been waiting to play it, shame it seems like it won't be coming out for another year or so.
@SrpskaArtilerija Should've also boycotted American products when they bombed civilians too but I doubt you did.
War sucks, these guys would most likely get closed down if they say anything about the war since you know, they're in Russia.
@RawnDawn I can’t recall buying games where US glorifies killing Syrians or Afghans. It’s not necessarily that the game is made by Russians, but the fact it is glorifying USSR at a time when crimes are committed against an independent country in the name of reviving the same evil empire. It’s like buying a game made by Germans where you play with Nazis after they won WW2 (although we all know that will never happen because, well, they learned their lesson after the War, unlike the Russians)
As a Romanian, with family members who lived under the terror of communism installed by those same so-called “anti-imperialistic” hypocrites, I am more than willing to express my concerns
Russian BioShock - I'm in!
N.i.c.e.Atomic heart.lost soul aside.black myth wu kong.lies of p etc.we got a lot of amazing looking indie games to come.word up son
@SrpskaArtilerija So let me get this straight, if the Russian weren't glorifying the deaths it'll be okay than?
You do know the only ones who are doing that are Putin f up big wigs and their family.
Also, I bet you most likely played shooters where you know, the US dropped nukes and killed so many innocent civilians.
If you don't want to support it cool, but I'm just calling out the hypocrisy of your statement.
@SrpskaArtilerija do you eat mac d?
@RawnDawn what game does involve nuking civilians tho? At least name some examples if you are so determined to counterattack my arguments
@SrpskaArtilerija how on earth is a future fantasy shooter set in the soviet Union glorifying Russia? Its a bloody game ffs. The problem with these types brainwashed by social amd national media, is that every single thing seems to trigger them. IT'S A GAME.
This is definitely heading for the comments being disabled
@Dan_ozzzy189 I have my own reasons to dislike the theme, more real than the virtue-signaling that is rampant in the West. Read a history book about the hell Eastern Europe went through because of Russia and maybe you’ll understand why I have such a grudge on USSR
I don't seem to remember people here being so benevolent when Tony B and his US cronies decided to invade Iraq and kill innocent people, so maybe we should boycott all US and UK games too?
Ahh, it's possibly because they wear different clothes to us, speak funny and are a different shade.
Hypocritical beyond belief.
And comments turned off in 3...2...1...
@SrpskaArtilerija World in Conflict, fallout, outrider, cilivation, not to mention the countless movies.
Those are just fiction at the end of the day, if you want real examples you can easily google it.
Look man, I agree with you that the Russians have to pay for what they're doing but we shouldn't shun the regular folk that aren't fighting.
Or what, you want them to become like the north Koreans and have them starve to death?
I'm done talking with you, have a good day.
Oh no, a Russian game?! get 'em boys!😂😂
This looks absolutely batsh*t crazy! I like it.
Game looks next gen. Should be fun to play
I'm keeping a very close eye on this game. It looks like a ton of fun and takes inspiration from Bioshock.
Visit Russia, before Russia visits you. Reminder that a great and proud nation like Russia is much more than this one point in history. But that doesn't mean you have to condone what they are doing.
Looks utterly incredible! Has come a looong way since its first showing and the team definitely deserve some recognition, praise and reward - doesn't matter where they come from as civilians never deserve punishment for their governments actions.
Russia has some fascinating and beautiful culture to explore and it certainly seems like a perfect setting for some tense sci-fi horror. Bioshock is one of my all-time favourite videogames and this looks to be a true next-gen spiritual successor 😁
I was worried that we'd never see this considering what's unfolded this year but I'm glad to see that's not the case, and I'm overjoyed that it blows my initial expectations out of the water.
No country on earth is completely innocent of anything, who the 'good' or 'bad' guys are is completely subjective. As for this game, it looks great, I've had my eye on it since the very first teaser and it'll be a day one purchase for me.
@Sqush-Pare well said.
Well.. the comment section sure didn't disappoint this time 🍿 cool game
Wish this game would just get a release date already.
Officially on blackout with this game, it just looks so dang awesome. Wake me when it’s out!
Yes lets try to punish regular everday citizens of a small game studio who are just trying to feed their families that ought to really hurt Putin. Also good luck boycotting you are just one person and boycotting video games never works.
Wow, you're ignorant.
@darkswabber Game can't be delayed if it was never dated in the first place. Always been a "TBA" to my knowledge.
That aside I am looking forward Atomic Heart, both the gameplay and story are very unique.
I love how ignorant the entire West is when they have never been invaded by Russia, or had to directly deal with it, and love to talk sh*t about anyone who understands that this war is especially enabled by the regular civilians through direct support, or silence and outright ignorance.
Advance Wars is indefinitely postponed because of Russia, but games like this can be released just fine. And all of you call me ignorant?
I wish you’ll never have to lose your relatives or homes due to invaders. Enjoy your pastime, *****
Looks good but certainly not buying due to it being Russian.
@SrpskaArtilerija they actually have protested in their messed up communistic system. Even children at the age of 5 and 6 were being arrested. I also have a bunch of Russian friends at my job that are totally against what's going on.
@PCPS4XB messed up communistic system? Russia is more fascist if anything these days
