Capcom has confirmed during its pre-Gamescom 2012 press conference that it’s working together with Paris-based developer Dontnod Entertainment on Remember Me, a futuristic third-person action adventure game that’s out in May, 2013.
Capcom has already made a few big announcements at Gamescom 2012, including the fact that the upcoming DmC Devil May Cry will feature not just Dante but also his brother, Vergil.
Now, the Japanese publisher has also revealed that it’s working together with developer Dontnod Entertainment on Remember Me, a new type of third-person action adventure game.
The game, that’s set to appear in May, 2013, will put players in the shoes of Nilin, an elite “memory hunter” that’s been betrayed by the authorities who are fearful of her skills and knowledge.
“Remember Me is a third person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society.”
Capcom has also revealed a list of features that will be included in Remember Me, so check them out below:
- Speculative, stunning vision of our future - Discover Neo-Paris 2084, where augmented reality and memory digitization have taken control of people’s lives.
- Play as Nilin, an elite memory hunter with a clouded past - Become the most wanted memory hunter in Neo-Paris and experience the power to break into people’s minds to steal their memories. Gain the information you need directly from people’s heads, to complete your missions and recover your own memory.
- Memory Remix - This innovative new gameplay mechanic allows players to use Nilin’s powers and alter parts of people’s memories in real-time gameplay. This will change characters’ complete perspective on their self-image and the people around them, which can have grave consequences for the world in 2084.
- A balanced mix of combat and exploration - Fight your way through the different environments Neo-Paris has to offer, using Nilin’s proficiency in martial arts, as both hunter and prey!
