In an exciting announcement, game developer Mundfish and publisher Focus Entertainment have revealed the highly anticipated details of the first content expansion for the action RPG game Atomic Heart. Titled ‘Annihilation Instinct,’ this new expansion is set to captivate players with its thrilling storyline and innovative gameplay features.
Scheduled to be released on August 2nd, ‘Annihilation Instinct’ will be accessible through the game’s “Atomic Pass” pass, priced at £32.99/$39.99. This expansion continues the narrative from the main game, immersing players further into the dystopian world of Atomic Heart.
Alongside an engrossing storyline, ‘Annihilation Instinct’ introduces a range of exciting additions, including a new area, formidable enemies, powerful weapons, and an all-new glove ability.
One of the highlights of the expansion is the introduction of the Techno-Stasis ability, an impressive feature that allows players to manipulate time itself. With this newfound power, gamers will face off against shape-shifting adversaries, armed with two cunning weapons: the ranged Secateur and the melee Klusha. These weapons, combined with the Techno-Stasis ability, provide players with a strategic advantage in their quest to survive and unravel the mysteries of Atomic Heart.
In addition to the ‘Annihilation Instinct’ DLC, an update is now available, offering players a brand-new game mode: New Game+. This mode challenges even the most seasoned Atomic Heart players, as enemies have developed resistances to certain attacks, making them significantly more formidable. However, players can carry over their hard-earned abilities and weapons, empowering them to face these increased challenges head-on.
Fans of Atomic Heart can anticipate an immersive experience in ‘Annihilation Instinct,’ delving deeper into the enigmatic world of the Mendeleev Complex and its surrounding swamps. The expansion promises to shed light on the fate of the dystopian world after the climax of the main game. Players will be reunited with familiar characters, including the protagonist Major P-3, who finds themselves pulled back into the haunting Facility 3826. Prepare for an unforgettable journey as you navigate through the insanity of the AI and uncover the truth about NORA.
With its captivating storyline, gripping gameplay features, and the addition of the New Game+ mode, ‘Annihilation Instinct’ is a must-have expansion for Atomic Heart enthusiasts. The ability to explore new areas, confront challenging enemies, and wield innovative weapons will undoubtedly leave players on the edge of their seats.
