The remake of the FPS XIII is slipping to 2020

The 13th of never

Paris - August 8th, 2019 - After revealing the game’s teaser last April, Microïds and PlayMagic are announcing today a new release window for the game. The remake of the world-famous cel-shading FPS, which became a cult classic after its original release in 2003, is now set for a release in 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac.

“We are thrilled with PlayMagic’s work so far. This additional development time is needed to reach the level of polish we’re aiming for. The announcement was greeted by an overwhelming response from the community and we’ll make sure to deliver the best possible game to our fans” says François Coulon - Head of Production at Microïds.

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.

XIII’s remake will be available in 2020 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC and Mac.

Thank you for releasing a finished game. I really don't mind the delay. Also, try to avoid the March to mid-May window, unless you want to be swallowed by FFVIIR, CP2077 and Avengers. I hope this time XIII will get the numbers it deserves :D

XIII is a underated treasure of an FPS. Style, substance, a wide variety of weapons plus the voice of David Duchovny in a cel shaded comic book made it such a treat. Hopefully they keep the story intact and can finish it. It was multiplatform but it was one of the top five best GameCube FPSs.

I didn't have money to buy more than 3 games (used) a year at the time as games in Brazil were super expensive (A GameCube was over 400 USD and new games were over 120 USD). So I actually download a demo of the game for PC and played it too many times to keep count. Eventually I was able to track a good used copy at a decent price and had a blast. It's the best FPS I played on the Cube since the only other games that would fit the category were Metroid Prime 1 and 2, and I consider them FPAdventures.

I suggest you try TimeSplitters 2 for the GameCube.

I always had my eye on it, but never found it for a good price. Unfortunately my GameCube has stopped reading discs Sad
I had a Wii with GameCube compatibility and when I moved to spend some time in the US I gave it to my sister-in-law to play Wii Sports, Mario Kart and some other games. When I got back with a new Wii without GameCube support I asked her if she would change it with me so that I could play GameCube games and she rudely said NO! and walked away. That was a bad day Sad

That's a welcome surprise of a game I bought on Gamecube.
