PowerSlave Exhumed was announced today by Nightdive Studios, and in a similar way to other previous projects of the company it is, also in this case, a re-edition of the old PowerSlave per Sega Saturn e PlayStation, adapted for modern platforms.
There is still no information on the planned platforms or release dates, for the moment, but there is already one trailer presentation that shows something of this new version of the old first person shooter for consoles, which apparently represents a sort of hybrid between the original version for Sega Saturn and that for PlayStation.
According to what is also reported in the presentation trailer, shown above, it is a port on Kex Engine by Nightdive Studios, authors of Doom 64, Shadow Man and System Shock, with whom it shares a bit general spirit and meaning of the operation.
The original Powerslave came out in 1996 on Sega Saturn and featured one first person shooter rather atypical, presenting elements of puzzle solving within a rather complex level design, which therefore also required the solution of puzzles in addition to shooting enemies.
This is a mainly technical adaptation, which significantly increases the resolution of the game and introduces various fixes such as SMAA antialiasing, anisotropic texture filter, changes to increase fluidity and various others improvements.
