Microïds and PlayMagic have announced that the remake of the cult classic XIII, the cel-shading FPS initially released in 2003, has been delayed to 2020.
We are thrilled with PlayMagic’s work so far. This additional development time is needed to reach the level of polish we’re aiming for. The announcement was greeted by an overwhelming response from the community and we’ll make sure to deliver the best possible game to our fans.
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.
XIII Remake will be available for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.
