Developer Mundfish has now released a new trailer for the upcoming game Atomic Heart, confirming the release window of sometime late 2022. The game was first announced in 2018 but was almost forgotten about due to the delay of the initial release date. Atomic Heart is a first-person shooter RPG set in 1950s Russia in an alternate reality.
Atomic Heart is reminiscent of nesFallout games that combine FPS with heavy story-driven gameplay. It also has a similar setting to an alternate futuristic and dystopian reality set in the past. The game is materialized in the Soviet Union in the year 1955, connecting the elements of Russian science fiction with the experience of the Cold War. The player will get a chance to become Agent P-3 and explore a fictional version of the Soviet Union as the player is tasked with dealing with the effects of an accident that caused technological advances to turn against the people of the USSR.
Atomic Heart Release Date
Atomic Heart will release in late 2022, and studio Mundfish had approved in February. Announced via a trailer, the release window is a vague “#######ber”, which could practically mean any date between September and December 2022. As of August 2021, the game was “at the stage of polishing and final assembly,” so it seems somewhat likely that they will hit that target.
Atomic Heart Gameplay
The gameplay is not only action-packed, but it is also a look at the video game culture that she is not familiar with. The futuristic version of the USSR in the 1950s is entirely new territory. This, combined with a mixture of real-life in Russia during the Cold War, is a unique experience for games like Dropswhich Mondvich inspired them. The atomic heart will be available on Xbox, Playstation, and PC later this year.
The developers say the story is a bit like an episode of Black Mirror as if the show were set in a warped version of the Soviet Union sometime between the ’30s and ’60s. The CEO reports that the USSR still exists in this reality, “but a technical revolution has already taken place: robots, the Internet, holograms have already been invented, and all of these innovations are submerged in the air of communism, confrontation with the imperialism of the West and all the other present political and social characteristics of the time.”
Robots have been mass-produced to assist with agriculture, defence, timber production, and simple household chores, and now they are actively starting to rebel. You will play the role of Major Nechaev, a mentally unstable KGB special agent codenamed P-3, and the government has sent you to investigate a manufacturing facility that’s fallen silent.
Atomic Heart System Requirements for PC
Atomic Heart’s Steam page lists both minima and recommended system requirements. To run it effectively, you will need at least an i5 4460 / AMD FX-6300 CPU, 6 GB of RAM, and a GTX 760 or R7 260x. The recommended specs for it are an i7 3770, 8 GB RAM, and a GTX 1060.
Atomic Heart Trailer
On February 9, IGN had uploaded a trailer of Atomic Heart, showcasing intense gameplay and a whiff of the plot of the thrilling game. The trailer displayed Atomic Heart’s futuristic setting, the friends and enemies that Agent P-3 will encounter during their exploration. The trailer also features an intense soundtrack created by Mick Gordon, who also composed the soundtrack of Doom Eternal. But the most beautiful part of this is the teaser of the new release date. At the end of the trailer, we see the text that reads “2022 ####BER”, hinting Atomic Heart will be available in one of the last 4 months of the year: September, October, November, or December.
