The New Atomic Heart Trailer Utterly Bonkers

When I first saw Atomic Heart it was the RTX lighting demonstration that showed some strange items in a room. Of course, this was quite some time ago now, and I wonder how many of you even remember it. I think I must have had the day off when any other information was released though, as the new trailer is pretty mental. So let’s check out the old tech trailer first!

I thought the game was some kind of puzzle or adventure title, but frankly, I couldn’t have been more wrong. It is in fact a complex shooter, and while it will have puzzle elements, looting, shooting, crafting, and player abilities all play a strong part too.

The game will fully support a range of real-time ray tracing effects, and if the trailer is any indication, it’s going to be a visual feast when it’s released. Plus, on PC, you can already download the RTX tech demo, which looks awesome by the way.

There really isn’t much else to say other than watch the trailer. It’s pretty wild and really, even from the strange early videos I saw of this game, it’s really not what I expected at all. The setting is the 1950’s, but strangely, it’s more futuristic too. It reminds me of Fallout a little, but it seems to take the retro and future aspects to the same extreme that it takes its level of crazy.

“Atomic Heart takes place in the Soviet Union in an alternative reality sometime in 1955, where technology like the internet, holograms and robots have already been invented. The main protagonist is a special agent called P-3, who is sent by the government to investigate a manufacturing facility that has fallen silent.” – Xbox

Release Date

There’s no solid release date just yet, but we’ll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Atomic Heart is coming day one to Xbox Game Pass on console, PC, and cloud.

As a child still in my 30's, I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
