As a nice prelude or appetizer to E3 2019, THQ just dropped a teaser trailer for a Destroy All Humans! remake. The game is slated for release sometime in 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The original Destroy All Humans! title, released all the way back in 2005, on both the original Xbox and PlayStation 2. The game heavily drew inspiration from the Cold War era, specifically from the rise in popularity of Alien invasion films and works such as The War of the Worlds by H.G Wells. The tone of the series remained slapstick and often parodied classic sci-fi and movie tropes. Destroy All Humans! went on to spawn three sequels, with the last game in the series being Destroy All Humans! Path of the Furon, which saw release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, respectively.
The original game followed the exploits of Cryptosporidium 137 or Crypto, an alien clone, tasked in harvesting human brain stem cells, which contain traces of the Furon Alien DNA — paramount in restoring the degrading nature of the Furon clone race. The biggest draw of the series is arguably its open sandbox world, fun and unique weapons and the various quips and one-liners from Crypto.
In true, videogame teaser-trailer fashion, the Destroy All Humans! remake trailer opts for a cinematic approach, rather than actually showing off gameplay, however, what we do get seems to be rather promising, mostly due to the inclusion of Rammstein.
Destroy All Humans! is currently in development by Black Forest Games with THQ Nordic behind the project. The game is expected to release sometime in 2020.
