Atomic Heart has released a new trailer that focuses on combat, and this game seems more fun every time it rears its weird little head.
For the uninitiated, Atomic Heart is the debut title from Moscow-based developer Mundfish. It is an action RPG set in an alternate version of the 1950s, in which the Soviet Union developed highly advanced robotics that eventually turned against humanity and began to wreak havoc. The thing is, these aren’t your usual robots; in fact, Atomic Heart has some of the scariest creatures I’ve ever seen in a video game.
At the beginning of the new combat trailer, a pair of robots embrace in a strange kind of dance before one of them grows tentacles from its forehead, forming a single sharp appendage, which the robot slowly buries into the belly of one of them. the other robot without meeting much resistance. It’s one of the many very harrowing scenes I’ve been exposed to watching today’s trailer and previous ones.
Fortunately, Atomic Heart seems like more than just a collection of weird-looking machines; its dystopian take on Soviet Russia seems like a genuinely exciting and impressive place to explore, and the combat looks explosively fun. You’ll have access to a ton of powers that let you fire icy blasts of ice and telekinetically launch enemies, as well as a ton of guns and melee weapons, which you can use simultaneously with your powers.
There seems to be a lot more at stake here than just the classic Robots Gone Bad story, and I can’t wait to dig deeper when Atomic Heart releases, hopefully sometime near the end of 2022 as planned. I’m a little concerned that we’re only a few months away from 2023 and we haven’t heard of a concrete release date, but I’d also be happy to wait a bit longer to play a more polished game.
here is a lot of new games of 2022 yearn.
