Atomic Heart Release Date Revealed


An explosive new trailer for Atomic Heart has revealed that the first-person action RPG will be released on February 21, 2023.

The new trailer for Atomic Heart showcases its blood-pumping, fast-paced gameplay, and reveals a release date for the Soviet-era shooter. Developer Mundfish and publisher Focus Entertainment have now confirmed that players will be able to explore the game's mysterious world on PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and Game Pass in February.

The story is set in an alternate version of the 1950s Soviet Union in which robotics and other advanced technologies were developed during World War 2. Robots designed to help humans have since turned against their creators, and a variety of secret experiments have led to the accidental creation of terrifying mutants, wreaking havoc on your own mission.

Mundfish first announced Atomic Heart in 2018, and there's been plenty of information shared since then. A huge chunk of gameplay gave people a better idea of what to expect from the action-RPG, while a Cinematic In-Engine trailer and Photo Mode teaser exposed the finer details — and there's much more to come as Atomic Heart is this month's IGN First.
