Hard Reset boots up September 13

Flying Wild Hog's cyberpunk first-person shooter set to debut on Steam for $30; preorders to get 10 percent off asking price.

by

Polish developer Flying Wild Hog today announced that its cyberpunk first-person shooter Hard Reset will launch on Steam September 13, exactly two months after the game was first announced. The shorter-than-usual turnaround time on the game will be matched by a cheaper-than-usual price, as it will sell for $30 on Valve's digital distribution service, with an additional 10 percent off for those who preorder the game.

Keep an eye out for Hard Reset?

Hard Reset is set in a bleak future at humanity's twilight. Under assault from robotic adversaries, civilization has contracted down to a single city called Bezoar. Players will take the role of military veteran Major Fletcher, who slowly uncovers the truth behind the cataclysmic conflict. The game will make use of the studio's Road Hog engine, which was built from the ground up for Hard Reset.

With a roster of 35 employees, Flying Wild Hog is a pastiche of developers with experience elsewhere in the Polish gaming scene. Specifically, the studio lists People Can Fly, CD Projekt Red, and City Interactive among its workers' previous employers.

Just preordered. This is the reason why I'm PC only. No console induced hype train that only works on kids.

@shantd It's cheaper coz it doesnt have multiplayer and it will be digital only, hence the pricecut.

@NeonNinja "No physical copies? I don't use Steam." think about the environment

wow announcing the game 2 months before the release I like that down with the teasers The fact that this game is a PC exclusive is enough to warrant the buy from me

@fratos I have credit cards and a paypal account. Buying things digitally isn't an issue. I just don't use Steam. I don't like it.

Awesome. $3 off...

@shantd By turnaround time they mean the time between when the game was announced and when it will be released. Normally games are announced a year or more in advance to allow for extending marketing hype.

Seems awfully linear, but maybe that's the point. The $30 worries me though...maybe it's an admission that the game will be short.

@made_u_look same I hoping the story has some little def to it, I'm a sci-fi nerd so a cyberpunk themed game taking place in a world dominated by robots would be pretty cool.

@Welverin oh right, i haven't used steam so i didnt know...but that is a good deal :)

The article above says that the game's "shorter than usual turnaround time will be matched with a lower than usual price"....what does it mean by a 'short turnaround time'? Anybody know?

Looks fun hope the story is compelling, but I'm definitely supporting my PC exclusive here. I also like Tesla looking plasma gun, looks awesome with the orb.

10% off pre-purchases is pretty standard for Steam, in fact it's unusual for pre-purchases to not be discounted.

well thats one of the best pre-order incentives i have seen but that and the low price makes me wonder how good this will be, it looks fantastic, i just hope it is.

Too bad no retail versions,but I will still buy it,because I want to support PC exclusives,and this game looks nice,I want some old school FPS.

It looks fairly interesting. The story seems like it will involve time manipulation though, which could be good or bad. Those who don't use Steam should. NeonNinja, I'm looking at you. Steam is the digital distribution service that makes retail truly obsolete.

@ NeonNinja You could make a steam account and ask one of your friend that has paypal(if you don't have one)to gift it to you through steam given you pass him the cash. I also believe they'll release the retail version in the future if the game sells well on digital.

I'll be playing RO2 that day, but I'll keep an eye on this.

It doesn't do anything special to distinguish itself from other shooters although the dark, sci-fi setting looks pretty cool. The weapon enhancement system is also interesting. Anyway, it's worth trying.

Definitely interested. Hopefully the game is good. 30 dollars is a bargain for a new game.
