Once in a while you’ll come across a game very few are talking about and you’ll be blown away by it. Atomic Heart is that game.
Billed as an “adventure first-person shooter” set in an ultimate reality during the time of the Soviet Union, the trailer below will bombard you with a lot of weird, mostly creepy locations and enemies.
In terms of gameplay we see a good mix of shooting as well as melee combat. At one point the player character eats something out of a can, which may be just to regain health or could tie into a survival mechanic.
We also see a degree of weapon customisation and players appear to be able to increase stats, as well as the aesthetics of a weapon.
That’s just about all there is to know about Atomic Heart right now. It’s billed for a 2018 release on PC, PlayStation and Xbox with a sparse Steam page up at time of writing.
Developer Mundfish has a second game in development – Soviet Luna Park VR – slated for a May 2018. The games look very similar but we’re not sure of the exact connection between the two. It certainly looks like they’re both set in the same universe.
