THQ Nordic has confirmed that the Destroy All Humans! remake is rapidly approaching our orbit. It will touch down on July 28 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
First announced in 2019, this Destroy All Humans! is a remake of the 2005 version that released on the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. The game keeps almost all of the original’s story intact, albeit with a prettier finish and new mechanics.
Set in the United States in 1959, Destroy All Humans! follows a Furon alien named Cryptosporidium on a mission to rescue a captured comrade — and gather human brains for study.
This version of Destroy All Humans! is being developed by Black Forest Games. We played one of the game’s early levels at PAX East 2020, and while it’s nearly a 1-to-1 remake of the original — including all of its 2000s-era humor — new mechanics and the Unreal engine make it feel much more modern.
There are currently three editions of the game available for pre-order from major retailers, including GameStop and Amazon.
The Destroy All Humans! Standard Edition costs $29.99 on PC and $39.99 on PS4 and Xbox One.
The DNA Collector’s Edition of Destroy All Humans! costs $149.99 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It includes a Crypto’N’Cow figurine, keychain, six lithographs, anti-stress toy, and all in-game Crypto skins, and a premium box.
The Crypto-137 Edition costs $399.99 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It includes everything in the DNA Collector’s Edition, as well as a Crypto-137 figurine and a Crypto backpack.
