Hard Reset returns with a Redux release


'Coming soon' to PC, PS4, Xbox One

Some people only know Flying Wild Hog for its work on Shadow Warrior (2013), but before that revival, the studio had another first-person shooter with old-school sensibilities: Hard Reset. It was a generally good time for fans of titles like Painkiller (a personal favorite) and Serious Sam.

The game didn't release on consoles, but that won't be the case again for the upcoming remaster, Hard Reset Redux, which is slated for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. There aren't many specifics yet -- no price, release date, or even screenshots -- but we can expect "an upgraded visual engine and rebalanced gameplay, along with new enemies and weaponry (cyber-katana!)."

I know I played the original and liked it, but otherwise, my recollection is hazy. In his review for Destructoid, Jim Sterling gave Hard Reset an 8 out of 10, noting that it was "an honest, straightforward FPS experience." Speaking of which, it's $2.99 on Steam right now.
