Atomic Heart has been a long-time coming, a new sci-fi first-person action RPG from developer Mundfish set in an alternate history futuristic Soviet Union of the 1950s. With its evocative art style and BioShock-inspired gameplay, it’s just about at the tippy top of our most anticipated releases for 2023. And now, we have a date - February 21, 2023. And a new trailer.
A big call with Starfield, Redfall, Diablo 4, and even a brand-new Zelda coming - but hey, we can't wait to play this one.
Set an alternate version of the 1950s, 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?
It’s been five years since the game was first announced too, so the hype is very real. Atomic Heart was even showcased as one of the first titles to take advantage of NVIDIA GeForce RTX’s real-time ray-tracing capabilities back when the RTX 2080 Ti was fresh on the scene. No doubt this would look incredible running on an RTX 4090 or RTX 4080 - but it’s also coming to Xbox Series X|S (and Xbox Game Pass) and PlayStation 5.
