THQ Nordic has announced a bunch of new games. New releases include a replica of Destroy All Humans! 2 plus the sequel to the classic Jagged Alliance roundup and tactics. There are also free games.
Destroy all humans too! 2 was created from scratch by THQ Nordic. Since the remake of the first part, which was released only last year, has been well received, an announcement is expected. In the second part, titled “Reprobed” in its remake, the Crypto alien joins forces with the “hairless apes” – humans – in order to take revenge on the KGB for destroying his spaceship while continuing to subjugate Earth. The plot is set in a satirical distorted version of the 1960s. Coming Soon to PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S | X including split screen collaboration mode.
An unexpected sequel to Outcast
Outcast has a reputation for huge success and a milestone: the title laid the groundwork for modern open-world games in 1999. A sequel to the original developers failed in 2014 due to a lack of interest on Kickstarter. After buying the rights to the brand, THQ Nordic is daring to make a new attempt, as the development team behind the classic version has been set.
In Outcast, the hero Cutter Slade will once again travel to the strange world of Adelpha, conquered by robots. The mission will be to save the population in an open world manner. It talks about a non-linear story, a crafting system and a strange world to explore.
A true sequel to Jagged Alliance
The latest new ad also revives what has long been forgotten. After 22 years of Jagged Alliance 2, a true third sequel is coming out. There were sequels with subtitled names in the meantime, but they qualitatively did not compete with good entertainment. In fact, the third part should build on its predecessor and become a “real successor”, as the publisher promised. This means the return of the tactical map for choosing missions and managing your territories. The goal will again be the forced removal of a dictator from the Banana Republic, for this purpose a separate mercenary force can enter the battle on a turn-based basis. This time around, the developer studio’s pick shows THQ Nordic is serious. Haemimont Games did good games with Tropico and Surving Mars.
Two old free games
Parallel to the show event, two classics from the THQ Nordic collection will be offered for free on Steam until September 23. Jagd Alliance Gold From 1994, which has the Deadly Games add-on, it’s a bit hard to digest for today’s tastes. Originally published 2006 Titan Quest Anniversary Edition It’s still playable today as a true always, as can be seen through two expansions, albeit moderately scored, from the past few years. At its core, it is a Diablo-style RPG set in ancient Greece. In addition, many games from the publisher are sold at discounted prices in parallel with the free campaign.
