Fulfilling their promise of three game announcements just before E3, THQ Nordic has announced a remake of the 2005 cult-classic Destroy All Humans!, proving that what is old is new again.
The trailer doesn’t show gameplay footage but retains the off-brand humor of the original title, featuring Crypto singing a Rammstein song. German studio Black Forest Games is handling the remake. According to the Amazon listing, the game will feature content that was cut from the original game including “the restored, much-rumored, never before seen: Lost Mission of Area 42,” similarly to the just announced Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is adding new content.
Destroy All Humans! originally launched in 2005 on the PS2 and the original Xbox. Set in the 1950s, the game featured tongue-in-cheek humor tha rips on the politics and fear of the decade, and a variety of alien-inspired weaponry, including an anal probe weapon. You could also pilot the infamous UFO and use telekinesis to attack the puny humans of Earth. A sequel launched the next year with two more games in the franchise coming later before the franchise went cold.
According to the trailer, we won’t see Destroy All Humans! Until some time in 2020 for the budget price of $39.99. Unlike THQ Nordic’s previous announcements, this game is only announced for PS4 and Xbox One, at a budget price of $39.99, and PC for $29.99. No Switch version at the time of writing. We’ll be sure to update you with more information as it comes. For more on E3 and THQ Nordic news, keep it tuned to Mammoth Gamers.
