Publisher Microids and developer PlayMagic revealed a remake of the 2003 XIII, set to launch on November 13, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Mac. I remember seeing this game on Blockbuster shelves back in the day but didn’t pay attention to it at the time. From what I looked into, the cast alone is worth checking this video game out. David Duchovny, Eve, and Adam West? I’m already invested.
“We aim to craft the finest adventure for players and XIII is definitely in line with our publishing strategy,” said Microids Head of Production Francois Coulon in a press release. “Revisiting this game came naturally as we felt this unique kind of story-driven FPS experience was missing in today’s gaming landscape. Our goal is to bring XIII’s compelling story to a new generation of players with the best possible graphics and animations.”
Play as “Thirteen,” a talented soldier who lost his memory and has been accused of killing the President of the United States. You wake up injured and amnesic on Brighton Beach with the only clue being a small key and a mysterious tattoo “XIII” next to your clavicle. It’s now your job to search for answers in the 34 levels of the solo campaign. Don’t worry, you will find the appropriate weapon arsenal along the way.
