ARS Technica reports Flying Wild Hog is planning to release Hard Reset in September. This game is a PC exclusive with single-player only, it promises old school gameplay to cater to fans of Doom, Quake and Painkiller.
"Our engine was built with one thought—to be used in a first-person shooter that uses lots of physics and destruction, with outstanding graphics and also optimized to do the job well," Michal Szustak, CEO of developer Flying Wild Hog, told Gamespot. "There are many games published on PCs that are just ports from consoles, and we all know that today the power of a current-gen console is similar to a four- to five-year-old PC."
The game will also feature maps and gameplay that is more Doom than Call of Duty, with larger levels to explore and secrets to find. "In the era of movie-like shooters almost 'on rails,' with player-environment interaction as limited as possible, we wanted to create a game for old-school PC players, raised on all those forgotten Dooms, Quakes, and Painkillers," Szustak said.
