Hard Reset: Dark cyberpunk future, from Poland

Poland. It’s not necessarily known as a hotbed for game development, but some pretty awesome games have come out of that particular European country. Now, it looks like there’s a new one for the list – Hard Reset.

Hard Reset

Hard Reset

It’s a “dark sci-fi shooter”, created for the PC by veteran developers who’ve also worked on Painkiller, Bulletstorm and The Witcher 2 – a combination of gamers now known as Flying Wild Hog.

Set in the dystopian cyberpunk future, Hard Reset finds humanity on the verge of extinction – under threat by hordes of robots.

Army Combat Veteran Major Fletcher, a CLN soldier, is in Bezoar, the last remaining human city. Dragged into a conflict between two enemy factions, it quickly becomes apparent that – you guessed it – nothing is as it seems.

Hard Reset is built on proprietary Road Hog technology, promising something a little bit special for gamers.

Here’s the debut trailer to give you a bit of an idea what’s in store:

Even though we’re only just finding out about this one now, the game will be released in September 2011, so we’re bracing for an information overload over the next couple of months.
