Microïds and PlayMagic Ltd have officially announced a remake of the cult classic XIII, the cel-shading FPS initially released in 2003.
Based on the first five volumes of the eponymous comic book series, XIII conquered the gamers’ hearts with its unparalleled mix between a story-driven adventure, a solid gameplay and a unique artistic direction. You 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.
We aim to craft the finest adventure for players and XIII is definitely in line with our publishing strategy. 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.
XIII’s remake will launch on the 13th of November on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
