In a move so nice that they’re doing it twice, THQ Nordic has announced during their 10th Anniversary Showcase (after Sony had done it last week) Destroy All Humans! 2: Reprobed for PlayStation 5, as well as the Xbox Series and the PC via Steam. No release date was announced, but we do get two trailers this time.
According to the announcement, Reprobed is a full remake of the original game, “adding and improving features while (re-)building the game from scratch in shiny Unreal Engine 4 visuals.” The remake will be handled by Black Forest Games, who worked on the remake of the first Destroy All Humans! game.
In Destroy All Humans! 2, set 10 years after the original game, Cryptosporidium-137 (our “hero” from the first game) is dead, and has been replaced with his clone, Cryptosporidium-138. The KGB have shown up, and see the Furons as a threat to the Soviet Union. They destroy the Furon mothership, and now Crypto is out for revenge.
