We’re about to tell you everything you need to know about Atomic Heart, so strap in. This little oddity has captured the minds of just about everyone who’s seen a glimpse of it. It’s easy to see why, with a style that feels like a blend of BioShock, Stalker, and Metro, it’s hard not to find yourself dragged along with it.
The good news though, is that the Atomic Heart release date is actually coming up pretty quickly now, and that means we’ve got more information than ever. It also means we don’t have long to wait until we can dive in ourselves, and given that patience isn’t a virtue we possess, that can only be a good thing.
When is the Atomic Heart release date?
The Atomic Heart release date is set as February 21, 2023. Now, it’s possible that this gets moved again, but when release dates are as close as this, it’s less likely, especially as the initial date was a generic 2022 when we first started seeing release windows for Atomic Heart.
If you’re not sure what platforms Atomic Heart is coming to, then fear not. It’ll be launching on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and S, and PC. Better yet, it’ll be coming to Game Pass on day one too, which is a nice little bonus for Xbox fans.
Atomic Heart gameplay- How Will it Play?
Gameplay in Atomic Heart is going to be first-person and have a fair bit of combat too. Not only will you be able to utilize melee weapons and cobbled-together ranged weapons, but it looks as though you’ll also gain some very BioShock-Esque powers thanks to a creepy-looking hole in your hand that constantly has wires coming out of it.
It looks as though different powers will have vastly different effects, with the player in the above trailer periodically shooting out lightning strikes, a flammable substance, freezing a group of enemies, and seemingly controlling gravity as well. If you’ve played games like Dying Light and others of first-person variety that mix melee and ranged combat in, then we reckon you’ll end up feeling quite at home here.
The game itself takes place in an alternate reality Soviet-era timezone where robots are the norm, and they all seem very upset with you for some reason. One thing we’re pretty certain of is that Atomic Heart will blend action and horror together in a few ways, and you’ll likely be hunted by things far bigger than you more often than not.
Where can I watch an Atomic Heart Trailer
There are a lot of trailers out there for it, and a lot of people talking about them, but the most recent one is just above and is from The Game Awards 2022. It shows off yet more fancy-looking explosions, more absurd powers, and some very Half-Life-looking enemies to boot. Expect a lot of gore and violence, and you’ll not be disappointed.
That’s everything we know about the game at the moment. We’re very glad we don’t have long to wait to jump into this one, as it’s definitely got the potential to be one of the biggest hits of the year thanks to its blend of over-the-top violence and uniquely unsettling setting. Plus, it’s undeniably pretty, and that always helps.
