In a brand-new teaser for the eagerly anticipated first-person shooter Atomic Heart from independent developer Mundfish, actor Jensen Ackles demonstrated the Atomic Way.
A girl with a wand and a pointy wizard cap starts spinning around in the first thirty seconds of the new trailer as she casts a spell against a gray dummy with a very sad face. She recites mock spell incantations using the phrases "belyash" and "vatrushka," which refer to two Russian pastries as if the joke weren't obvious enough.
Jensen Ackles is there to show her how to survive the robot apocalypse: absurd violence, though, her spell doesn't work as intended. In the clip, Ackles is seen hitting a dummy with a large weapon and blasting lightning from a device on his palm, which might possibly represent a form of technology-based magic.
Atomic Heart's publisher Focus Entertainment celebrated the game's years-long creation with a special teaser that included Ackles as Major Nechaev, the protagonist of the title. Atomic Heart's release date is less than a week away. The Supernatural alum is shown in the teaser tearing through many targets with a variety of weaponry, including his trademark polymer glove, a unique gadget that gives its user access to a number of unique talents.
What To Get Excited For
In an alternate reality where the USSR evolved into a post-scarcity utopian society, with the majority of the population's needs being easily satisfied by an army of robotic slaves. According to reports, the story is set in the Soviet advanced research facility Facility 3826 and is told from the perspective of Major Sergei "P-3" Nechaev, a mentally ill military commander. Major Nechaev arrives at Facility 3826 on the orders of the eminent Soviet scientist Dmitry Sechenov to find out why the facility's AI workers have suddenly started attacking people and to repair the facility's internal systems.
Several of Atomic Heart's gameplay mechanics were shown off in earlier trailers for the game. This includes images of the polymer glove, which gave users access to a variety of extraordinary abilities like the ability to telekinetically move objects and encase adversaries in ice. In addition, Atomic Heart showcased a variety of combat and ranged weaponry, as well as modding and weapon creation capabilities. The new game's open environment, which will feature five complexes and reportedly offer up to 25 hours of original stuff to experience, would also be of appeal to adventurous players.
On February 21, Atomic Heart will be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Additionally, the game will be free for Xbox Game Pass subscribers to download on launch day.
