Thanks to the publisher Microids and developer Playmagic, we get to play a remake of XIII on the PlayStation 4!
Ubisoft’s popular cel-shaded first-person shooter XIII was launched back in 2003 and was playable on GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC. Now PlayStation brings back this unique game to the PS4, and we can play it starting with November 13!
If you haven’t played XIII, you should know that it has a plot based on a series of five Belgian graphic novels from 1984 (writer – Jean Van Hamme, artwork – William Vance). Its way of mixing the graphic novel look with the FPS genre makes XIII one of a kind. The game’s lead protagonist’s voice was epic, with David Duchovny bored voice completing the game – yes, he was the FBI agent Fox Mulder in X-Files.
XIII Trailer Shows Promising Graphics
On the PlayStation blog, we caught a glimpse of the trailer and some details about the incoming remake of XIII, as well as some screenshots of the character art and concept environment:
The first person shooter will have you play as Thirteen (XIII). You are a soldier that has lost his memory and has been accused of killing the US President. You are the most wanted man in the US and you need to find answers and waste a lot of bullets to complete your goal.
The Head of Production at Microids, François Coulon, explains that the remake of this game was born out of the feeling that today’s gaming world needs this unique experience, and we couldn’t agree more. What will we see in the XIII remake?
“Our goal is to bring XIII’s compelling story to a new generation of players with the best possible graphics and animation. The result will be nothing short of spectacular as we promise to celebrate the amazing work done on the original game. Stay tuned for more details…”
XIII will be available on PlayStation 4 on November 13, 2019.
