Earlier today THQ Nordic, publishers of the popular Darksiders series, announced that the Destroy All Humans! remake has an official release date. Destroy All Humans! is set to release on July 28, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
For those unaware, Destroy All Humans! is a remaster of the cult classic PlayStation 2 title. This game puts players in control of Crypto-137, an alien who has set down in 1950’s America. Players harvest DNA from humans to bring down the U.S. Government, with the assistance of alien weaponry and psychic abilities. Learn to annihilate the puny race and level major cities with a flying saucer.
Destroy All Humans! is available to pre-order today. There are three different editions. The standard edition is set to retail for $39.99 with a pre-order bonus of cosmetic in game skins.
The DNA Collector’s edition includes a 9-inch “Crypto’n’cow” figurine, an eye-popping anti-stress toy shaped after Crypto, a metal keychain, and all in game cosmetic skins. This edition is set to retail for $149.99.
The Crypto-137 edition is set to retail for $399.99. This edition comes with a 23-inch statue of Crypto-137, an official Crypto backpack, an eye-popping anti-stress toy shaped after Crypto, six lithographs, a metal keychain, and all cosmetic in-game skins.
Destroy All Humans! was originally developed by Pandemic Studios, best known for 2005’s Star Wars: Battlefront II, which many gamers consider the best in the Star Wars: Battlefront series. Destroy All Humans! went on to have a sequel and a few offshoot games, and this remaster is looking to be a nice break from the bigger games being released this year.
The year 2020 is shaping up to be the year of the remaster/remake of classic, genre-defining games, with Square Enix releasing both Final Fantasy VII Remake and Trials of Mana, and Nintendo and Monolith releasing a remastered Xenoblade Chronicles for the Nintendo Switch in late May.
