PowerSlave: Exhumed rises from the dead on February 10

The classic FPS will launch this February for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Get ready to head back into Karnak: PowerSlave: Exhumed is finally bringing a classic shooter back from the dead. A port of the classic shooter PowerSlave to the KEX Engine, the game will launch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and GOG on Feb. 10.

This new version serves as a “best of both worlds” between the original Saturn version and the PlayStation port, both of which had different level design. By bringing the two versions together, Nightdive Studios has set out to create the definitive version of PowerSlave.

Even though the classic experience remains, the KEX Engine brings a number of new features and upgrades to PowerSlave: Exhumed. In addition to visual enhancements, the game also includes modern gamepad support and achievements.

What you need to know about PowerSlave: Exhumed

Originally launched for the SEGA Saturn in 1996, PowerSlave (released in Europe as Exhumed) continued the trend of heavy-metal inspired shooters that began with the launch of DOOM in 1993. It set itself apart with its Egyptian setting and elaborate alien design. This KEX Engine port also includes several visual enhancements, including widescreen/HD support, SMAA antialiasing, anisotropic texture filtering, smooth object interpolation for higher refresh rate monitors, and Vulkan/DirectX 11 compatibility.

The official description for the game reads as such:

Destination: The ancient Egyptian city of Karnak. Alien forces possessing horrifying powers have sealed off the once thriving community from all outside contact. As a covert operations specialist, you have been trained for all forms of contingencies. Nothing can prepare you, however, for the nightmare you are about to enter…
