Classic Shooter XIII is getting Remade for Modern Platforms

XIII the classic cell-shaded shooter is getting remade for modern platforms, bringing back the game with "the best possible graphics and animations", making this more than a mare HD reskin of the original. 

The original XIII was released in 2003 for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube, offering visuals which were designed to match the comic series that the game is based on. The remaster will be handled by Microids and PlayMagic, with both studios hoping to remain faithful to the original game while reworking the game's mechanics to make the game more suitable to modern audiences. 

At launch XIII was praised for its story and its uncommon graphical style, which granted the game a unique look and feel during the 6th generation of consoles. 

    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.


While no gameplay has been released for XIII's upcoming remaster, we were able to find this image which showcases what gamers should expect from the remaster graphically. Please note that XIII's artwork is subject to change, but as it stands, players can expect a substantial graphical uplift over the PS2 original. 

XIII's remake will be coming to PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on November 13th.

Glad to see they're updating the gameplay mechanics too, I remember that despite the amazing graphics, story and atmosphere the gunplay could get abit samey and some levels were abit of a chore. It's always a bit jaunting going back to 6th gen console FPS games generally though with how much the genre matured over the 7th gen.Quote

I think these days it would feel bland along all other shooters. It was a showcase back then of destruction and atmosphere. you can play any BF from 3+ and it will have everything that was good with better graphics, engine, multiplayer and sound. This game got Sooo much hype but after a few hours of gaming it was very boring.
Owned XIII but never played it. Might even still have it for PS2, Ill have to checkQuote
