THQ Nordic is reviving Destroy All Humans! 2 with a full remake of the 2006 game. Titled Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed — this is the publisher who released Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning and Darksiders: Warmastered Edition, after all — the remake is being developed for PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X for a 2022 release.
The second game in the Destroy All Humans! franchise takes place in 1969, and sends protagonist Crypto on a revenge mission to new locations: Bay City, Albion, Takoshima, Tunguska, and Solaris, a Soviet base set up on Earth’s Moon.
Developer Black Forest Games promises local two-player split-screen co-op, and new and improved features, in its built-from-scratch remake of Destroy All Humans! 2. The Reprobed version, unlike its 2020 predecessor, does not appear to be bound for last-generation consoles.
The original Destroy All Humans! 2 was developed by Pandemic Studios, published by the former THQ, and released on PlayStation 2 and Xbox.
Just like the first Destroy All Humans! remake, Reprobed’s mechanics will hit the same beats as the original sequel, but the controls have seen some modernization. Additionally returning is the voice work from the older title, meaning every scene in the game’s story will maintain its fidelity while sporting a fresh coat of paint.
As for Destroy All Humans 2! – Reprobed, a pair of THQ Nordic trailers were shown at the publishers 10th Anniversary Showcase. The cinematic announcement demonstrates that the franchise’s devil-may-care humor is still fully intact, while a gameplay trailer shows off the visual upgrades in the works for the new-gen experience, as it will only be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC at launch.
