Paris - April 18th, 2019 - Microïds and PlayMagic Ltd unveil today a teaser for the remake of the cult classic XIII, the cel-shading FPS initially released in 2003. Players will be delighted to learn that XIII’s remake will be available the 13th of November 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac!

Based on the first five volumes of the eponymous comic book series, XIII conquered the gamers’ hearts with its unparalleled mix between a story-driven adventure, a solid gameplay and a unique artistic direction.

“We aim to craft the finest adventure for players and XIII is definitely in line with our publishing strategy. Revisiting this game came naturally as we felt this unique kind of story driven FPS experience was missing in today’s gaming landscape. Our goal is to bring XIII’s compelling story to a new generation of players with the best possible graphics and animations.” Declares François Coulon – Head of Production at Microïds

The PlayMagic team is very excited for the opportunity to remake a true classic; modernizing the graphics, sound and animations while remaining faithful to the original XIII's incredible look and feel. XIII's gameplay mechanics are being reworked in an effort to modernize the experience in a way that encompasses the original spirit of the game. We are sure that the fans of the original game will love rediscovering one of their all time favorites while new players discover a truly iconic masterpiece in a new light." Declares Giuseppe Crugliano, CEO & Creative Director at PlayMagic Ltd.

The story:

Play as «Thirteen», a talented soldier who lost his memory and has been accused of killing the President of the United States. You wake up injured and amnesic on Brighton Beach with the only clue being a small key and a mysterious tattoo « XIII » next to your clavicle. It’s now your job to search for answers in the 34 levels of the solo campaign. Don’t worry, you will find the appropriate weapon arsenal along the way.

 

More information about this remake will be revealed soon... Stay tuned!
