Atomic Heart is a new sci-fi first-person action RPG set in an alternate history futuristic Soviet Union of the 1950's. Earlier this year we got a truly impressive trailer (in Russian) that showcases its evocative art-style and BioShock inspired gameplay. With no news on the game since then, the "#######BER 2022" release date looks to still be on the cards.
The reason we say that is because it appeared on this recent Xbox card made public on Monday that highlights all the games coming over the next 12-months. A stacked list to be sure, but right there in the 2022 half sits Atomic Heart, on track for a 2022 release on Xbox Game Pass (PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S). Atomic Heart is also coming to PC (Steam), PS5 and PS4.
Atomic Heart comes from Russian studio Mundfish, and has been in development for a number of years now. On the PC side it was one of the first titles to announce GeForce RTX powered real-time ray-tracing, so odds are it's in the final stages of polish.
And with that, here's that awesome trailer from a few months back.
Set an alternate version of the 1950's, the story of Atomic Heart takes place in a Soviet Union in which robotics and other advanced technologies were developed during World War II. This world isn't so far removed from the ideals for which humanity is fighting today: a happy society, the power of science, perfect cities with green, sun-dappled parks and town squares, the automation of everyday life, the desire to explore the stars... these things could be right around the corner. But let's take a look at the dark underbelly of this ideal world — what if all this had already happened? And where could it lead?
