THQ Nordic snapped up the rights to Destroy All Humans! a long time ago now, and we’ve all been assuming that a new one is on its way. THQ Nordic has finally announced the date that the “new one” (a remake) will land, and it’s July 28.
One giant step on mankind!
Destroy All Humans! is a cult classic and one of the few games that will have you laughing out loud. Many games have taken inspiration from its mix of humoristic story-telling and easily accessible open world shooter action, as well as its wide range of over-the-top weaponry. But there can only be one Cryptosporidium: the human-hating alien with the voice of an angry Jack Nicholson and a shorter fuse than a xenomorph on steroids.
Step right up and enjoy the show!
Only Destroy All Humans! allows you to explore idyllic US cities of the 1950s, read the thoughts of their citizens to uncover their secret desires… and then burn the very same cities to the ground with the mighty Death Ray of your flying saucer!
Use your Abducto Beam to throw tanks around!
Use your psychokinesis powers to crush a farmer under his own cow!
Discover which seemingly prude ’50s housewife secretly has the hots for her hairdresser!
Slowly batter a human to death with his own hat!
Light up the night by zapping your enemies with teslatastic electricity!
Take. One. Giant. Step. On. Mankind!
As with every mildly high-profile game, there will also be a special edition to look forward to if you’re that much of a fan. And if you’re ridiculously obsessive about this satirical series, you can also pick up a “Crypto-137 Edition.” It’ll cost you $400, but you’ll certainly prove you’re the biggest fan of Destroy All Humans! with that thing.
The game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
