While many studios seem to be waiting until the next console generation to launch new franchises, there is at least one pleasant surprise bucking that trend out of GamesCom 2012 today. Revealing the new title at their GamesCom press conference, publisher Capcom has announced Remember Me, an all new third-person action adventure game from Paris-based developer DONTNOD Entertainment.
The game reportedly started its life with a Sony connection under the working title Adrift, but Capcom has revealed the game as in the works for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a release target of May 2013.
In Remember Me, players assume the role of Nilin, an elite memory hunter who is not only incredibly athletic and trained in martial arts, but also has the special ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even change their memories. When her own memory is erased, Nilin begins her journey to reclaim her identity and discover how she can change the world.
An announcment trailer and a full gameplay trailer can be found below, which provide a solid overview of what to expect.
The game is set in the year 2084 in Neo-Paris, and has from our first glance could be described as something of a cross between Beyond Good and Evil, Mirror's Edge, Assassin's Creed and the recent Syndicate Reboot. Check the trailers below, or click the links for the HD video pages.
