Prepare to wipe out the human race with the remake of the classic alien invasion title, Destroy All Humans! which will release on July 28.
The now-closed Pandemic Studios launched Destroy All Humans! in 2005 for PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox. The open-world title had you as an alien, Cryptosporidium-137, who is on a rescue mission for Cryptosporidium-136.
It would launch into a series that would have its reception fall off after the 2006 sequel. Still, the legacy went on and would follow four years of hits for the studio like 2005’s Star Wars: Battlefront II. The last two games that launched before the shutdown would come from 2009’s The Saboteur and The Lord of the Rings: Conquest.
Former employees would go off to work at 343 Industries to develop Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary and Halo 4. Others would get jobs companies like Infinity Ward and Respawn Entertainment.
The Destroy All Humans! remake was announced last year, two days after Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated. It will be published by THQ Nordic and developed by Black Forest Games. The studio behind building the classic PS2 and Xbox era title into the modern realm of games has made its name off of the kickstarted sequel to the 1987 platformer The Great Giana Sisters, with Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams.
Destroy All Humans! will launch on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia for $29.99.
