Capcom’s upcoming game, Remember Me, is just over a month away, and new gameplay can be seen in a new trailer released today.
First, let’s get you caught up, just in case you don’t know much about Remember Me:
Personal memories can now be digitized, bought, sold and traded. The last remnants of privacy and intimacy have been swept away in what appears to be a logical progression of the explosive growth of social networks at the beginning of the 21st century. The citizens themselves have accepted this surveillance society in exchange for the comfort only smart technology can provide. This memory economy gives immense power over society to just a handful of people.
Remember Me is a 3rd person action adventure where players take on the role of Nilin, a former elite memory hunter with the ability to break into people’s minds and steal or even alter their memories. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. After her escape from prison, Nilin sets out on a mission to recover her identity, helped by her last and only friend. This search for her past leads to her being hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society. During the course of the story, Nilin will start remembering who she was and re-learning all the fighting moves that made her one of the world’s leading memory hunters.”
It all sounds very intriguing. However, I went from intrigued to excited after watching the new trailer. “In an all new video Jean Maxime-Moris, Creative Director at developer DONTNOD Entertainment, discusses this memory gameplay mechanic and how it makes Remember Me unforgettable.”
It looks cool, right? It sort of looks like Total Recall meets Assassin’s Creed. Either way, I look forward to playing and reviewing this game next month!
Remember Me releases on June 4th for PC, 360, and PS3!
