THQ Nordic is clearly looking to get out in front of the impending stampede of announcements by unveiling Destroy All Humans!, the remake of the 2005 action-adventure, with development studio Black Forest Games working towards a 2020 release date.

Set during the 1950s, players take on the role of an evil alien by the name of Crypto-137, and using a range of, shall we say, interesting weapons (Anal Probe Gun, anyone?) and a flying saucer it's time to take over. The dialogue and story from the original will remain intact, but there'll be plenty of gameplay changes, as revealed in the press release that was sent to us:

Crypto is more agile than ever, his aerial combat skills improved, his psychic skills can now be used in glorious unison with his guns. And the new Psychokinesis... ever wondered what'd happen if a Jedi had a love child with the Goat Simulator? You're welcome for that mental image.

A bunch of screenshots dropped alongside the trailer that you can see below, and some of the features have also been detailed:

- Experience the evil side of a 50s alien invasion story
- (Re)Discover why this game is considered one of the funniest ever created
- Faithfully rebuilt from scratch in new galactic glory
- Enjoy Crypto's unique weaponry like the Anal Probe Gun
- Pose as pathetic humans to infiltrate their fragile democracy
- Use psychokinesis to send enemies flying or bombard them with random objects
- Freely traverse explorable cities from 50s America using your jetpack
- Obliterate humanity's primitive architecture with your flying saucer
- Includes the restored, much-rumored, never before seen: Lost Mission of Area 42!

REVIEW. Written by Ben Lyons
