Developer PlayMagic has announced a new release date for its remake of the cult classic shooter, XIII.
The game is known for its art-style, which at the time was unique and embraced a comic book style aesthetic. Players were made to feel as if they were involved within the strips of a graphic novel with impressive visuals for the time.
The XIII Remake stays faithful of the original’s art style, but will still utilize the 2003 version’s voice acting and soundtrack. “Our goal is to bring XIII’s compelling story to a new generation of players with the best possible graphics and animations,” said François Coulon, head of production at publisher Microïds.

In XIII Remake, players control a man suffering with amnesia as he wakes up on a beach. In an effort to discover who he is, players will be able to play either stealthily or all-guns-blazing through an assortment of action packed levels in a hope to find answers.
Players who pre-order the game are set to receive a set of golden weapon skins pack. A limited edition of the game is also available to pre-order which comes bundled with a steelbook, three art prints, a digital copy of the original game soundtrack, and the golden weapons skins pack.
IGN’s Summer of Gaming event is set to run throughout June and gearing up to reveal multiple games according to its full schedule.
