The concerns that surrounded Atomic Heart for years on end may have been warranted, but finally, after years of development it’s time for players to drop in to the utopian world that is on offer, making the most of the power of Game Pass should they so wish.
Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation and PC is Atomic Heart, Mundfish and Focus Entertainment’s much anticipated action RPG. It comes about after a good few years of development, pushing on through concerns that the game may never see light of day, to finally release.
Whisking players off to the 1950s as an alternate post-WWII world plays out, players will discover that not all is right in the world. Servant robots are a thing, and for many they worked well, living alongside humanity, without a care in the world. But then a rebellion hits – and it’s here where you need to try and stop the machines from taking charge.
Atomic Heart looks the business, running spectacular combat lines as you take down mutants, machines and a whole load of madness. With the opportunity to run a variety of play and fighting styles, it’ll be up to you to work with the tools at hand, utilising skills, making the most of resources and overcoming the evil which is plaguing the land.
The key features that help all this come together in Atomic Heart include:
- • An utopian world, both mad and sublime
- • Visceral, spectacular and unforgiving combat
- • Blast giant machines and mutants using your multiple skills and advanced weapons
- • Upgrade your arsenal and equipment
So how do you get involved? Well, Atomic Heart is available across a few different lines. There’s the Standard Edition which runs at £59.99 or through a Game Pass subscription, whilst the Gold Edition adds a whole ton of cash, ramping the asking price up to £84.99. Granted, you get the base game plus the Atomic Heart Atomic Pass (four extra DLC are promised for later arrival) as well as the Labor & Science Weapon Skin Pack, but that’s still a hefty wallet buster.
Providing even more strain on the wallet is Atomic Heart Premium Edition for – wait for it – a cool £94.99. Expect to find everything in the Gold Edition included, along with a digital artbook and the Golden Age Weapon Skin Pack. Is that worthy a near £100 asking price? It’s your money, do with it what you will…
For many we’d suspect that utilising the Game Pass love will be more than sufficient for their Atomic Heart needs. Let us know what you think by dropping into the comments section below.
