On Friday, publisher THQ Nordic hosted its first-ever digital showcase where it revealed a slew of new games and provided gameplay footage for others. While more than half a dozen titles were highlighted, we're going to focus on the major releases like Destroy All Humans 2 - Reprobed and SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake. You can learn more about them below.
Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed
Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed was leaked a few days ago by PlayStation and many gamers assumed that it was a PlayStation 5 exclusive. Luckily, that's not the case and it's coming to Microsoft's platforms as well.
That's right, earthlings, Crypto is back and this time, he's invading the swinging sixties! After the KGB blew up his mothership, Crypto seeks revenge and travels to iconic places in the United States, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union, Japan, and even to the Moon! Destroy All Humans! 2 is a full remake of the original game, adding and improving features while building the game from scratch in shiny Unreal Engine 4 visuals.
Destroy All Humans! 2 - Reprobed is in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. It doesn't seem like it's coming to last-generation consoles.
Of course, this is not a new announcement, but no less exciting: open-world role-playing game Elex II shows off its new story-trailer, explaining what drove Jax, the Beast of Xacor into isolation, and why the time has come for him to leave his exile.
Elex II is coming to last-generation and current-generation consoles. It should be available on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X.
Outcast 2: A New Beginning
Your friendly neighborhood invader-slayer is back: Cutter Slade returns to the spectacular alien world of Adelpha in Outcast 2: A New Beginning. Twenty years after the events of the first game, Adelpha finds itself under threat of invasion: ruthless corporations are exploiting the planet and are enslaving and even killing the people. Cutter's mission is clear: organize a resistance, rescue the people, and get rid of the invaders.
Outcast 2: A New Beginning was announced a while back, and it's currently in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The in-engine gameplay trailer finally showcases the visuals we can expect from the project.
