Destroy All Humans Remastered: Release Date, Trailers, Gameplay, Price and more

Destroy All Humans, a PS2-era classic, is getting a fresh coat of paint and a re-release in 2020.

Originally launched back in 2005, players assume the role of Crypto, an alien with a simple goal – destroy all humans. What follows is open-world blasting, disintegration, and flying a UFO.

The game garnered a cult following and was one of the franchises that THQ Nordic picked up in the THQ IP "fire sale" when that publisher went bust.

Features and Changes to Gameplay

Apart from notable graphical changes, Black Forest Games appear to be keeping the gameplay of Destroy All Humans relatively untouched.

However, some quality of life and minor changes to gameplay have been revealed.

Let's check them out:

  • After completing each story mission, players can return to that area in a sandbox zone. This gives the player a sense of freedom and a chance to get as much nostalgia out of the title as possible.
  • New challenges have been added
  • Quality of life changes to weapon swapping and gameplay
  • Update to UI
