Destroy All Humans! is a franchise I fell in love with back in the PS2 era. And now, THQ Nordic is giving fans a new reason to jump back on board with crypto and his quest to dominate the planet. That’s because THQ Nordic just announced a full remake of the early 2000s sci-fi spoof.
Cryptosporidium 137 leads the Furon invasion attempts against Earth, using all manner of alien tech to annihilate cows, humans and even the family dog to harvest them for DNA. DNA he then uses to make his weapons more powerful. That might sound brutal, but the tongue-in-cheek nature of the whole affair makes it even more fun. And if you’re looking for a great satire of the “Red Scare” mentality of America, this is a great game to start with.
The remake is a full HD remaster with reworked textures, levels and characters. The abilities Crypto uses in the original game are all left in tact as well. THQ Nordic is billing this as an “exact” remake, so expect more visual improvements of gameplay being tweaked in this version.
There are some extra treats packed in for fans though aside from just upgraded graphics. The new version will contain some content that was cut from the original game. No details on what this might be though. It could be more weapons, abilities, or even entirely new levels. We might be seeing more of the game at E3 2019, so be on the lookout for that.
If you can’t wait to play the remake and need to meet up with Crypto for a bit of fun first, the original game is available right now on the PS4 digital storefront.
Destroy All Humans! is due out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2020.
