Capcom reveals Remember Me

Third-person action game originally named Adrift hitting PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC during May 2013.

Capcom has added a new property to its stable of franchises. The publisher today announced Remember Me, a new action game from Paris, France-based Dontnod Entertainment. The game was known as Adrift when it was last shown.

Memories aren't safe in Remember Me.

A third-person game due out during May 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, Remember Me has players taking on the role of Nilin, an "elite memory hunter."

According to Capcom, Nilin is not only a physical threat, but also boasts a special ability that allows her to break into people's minds where she can steal or change memories.

For more on Remember Me, check out the game's announcement trailer, and coverage of the project when it was called Adrift.

GameSpot is on hand at Gamescom 2012 this week in Cologne, Germany. For more from the show, check out GameSpot's coverage of the event.

we really need another game box cover featuring a female character that looks at us ass first.

 

apart from that, this looks good.

Looks good, though I will wait for more trailers and gameplay. But other than that, this looks like another game I will wait for, or remember till 2013.

doesn't look smooth enough. But I love the setting and idea.Some animations were choppy, a lot of scripted points in the demos, climbing looks awkward; combat looks nice.

I'm sorry, it looks awful.

Looks interesting, hope there's some interesting use of the memory fiddling through the game, one to watch.

Wasn't there all this hoopla around here about the lack of creativity and innovation in video games? This game looks to be the opposite of that, doesn't matter if it's good or not, it's something quite different. At least from what I can tell.

A female character able to break into peoples minds and screw them up ? I think I speak for many men who have enough of that in the real world.  At least they aren't making another shooter like everyone else.

Open world, maybe? Looks like it might have a good storyline.

besides the cliche voice acting.. I think it looks promising.. the girl reminds me a lot of that game.. where you jump from red platforms

For some reason this concept reminds me of the anime 'Ghost in the Shell'.

Quite interested in the narrative. Game play look like a combination of many genres and recently popular games. I hope they bring some new mechanics into the action.

I've been wondering if Adrift was cancelled, it's nice to see it's still on the way. Capcom is overly reliant on 3rd party western devs this generation, but if it gives the ex-Criterion devs to get a neat IP out for us, all the better.

Finally! I've been awaiting news on Adrift for a while now. DontNod's original premise sounded particularly intriguing, and it's interesting to see the new development progress, but I'm dubious about the merits of having Capcom as publisher - hope the latter doesn't have have a negative impact on potential.

As an aside, you chaps should really cease-and-desist from heaping so much credit upon Capcom for this  - they're only on board as the publisher after all. :|

Looks interesting, definitely keeping an eye on this on this one, as it develops.

 

I'm really liking these new IP's coming out recently and soon, it feels like a breath of fresh air in the gaming market at the moment.

Engine looks a little dated. Might be the engine of Dragon's Dogma, that although I like it, I don't think these are good news.

Wow thats a HUGE Total Recall rip off! More so of the remake than the original....still, sounds good and always thought itd make a good game

 @tightwad34 Because deep down, most people don't really want creative or original. They don't want to stray from the familiar. They want the gameplay, style, and mechanics they're used to, because otherwise they might have to let go of mommy's coattails and actually take a chance on something that isn't familiar to them.

The engine is too old looking in DD and too much dated textures and feel to it.

 @Sanity_Bleeds  I'm sorry, but I saw the gameplay, and it's very linear and boring looking.

 @lilceazer so you get all the dlc in one fell swoop rather than torture yourself the agony of waiting....

 Speak for yourself, a lot of people think it looks promising, I agree and I've looked into it. True enough it doesn't seem like it will be game of the year... but a sci fi, action, strong female lead storyline is unique compared to all the male lead role games out there.
