Capcom kicked off Gamescom with a bang Tuesday morning when it announced Remember Me, an all-new IP from developer Dontnod Entertainment for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
Remember Me is described as being a third-person action-adventure title that takes place in the far-off future of 2084 in a city called Neo Paris. According to Capcom, the game is currently scheduled for release on all three platforms in May of next year.
Here’s the lowdown who you’ll be playing and what your character will be doing in Remember Me, straight from Capcom’s mouth (hands?):
“In Remember Me, players assume the role of Nilin, an elite memory hunter who is not only incredibly athletic and trained in martial arts, but also has the special ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even change their memories. When her own memory is erased, Nilin begins her journey to reclaim her identity and discover how she can change the world.”
There’s not a whole to go on, granted, but what we know makes Remember Me look a bit like Total Recall with some Deus Ex: Human Revolution thrown in, at least as far as the story is concerned. If that’s the case, it’s certainly not the worst combination in the world, and I’m definitely interested to learn more.
While we wait for more information — which will hopefully come sooner rather than later — you can check out the debut trailer for Remember Me below. If that’s not enough for you, you also can check out a whopping 7-minute gameplay video.
